What is next in MOS Mobile?
By RichMiller-Oracle on Nov 08, 2011
MOS Mobile has been out for about a month. We found some bugs and we have them fixed (waiting to release the fixes). We think most folks found out about MOS Mobile from the banner on the sign in page.
In the meantime you have asked for a few features and new services. Great! We are working on Knowledge and have heard from a bunch of folks about RFCs (for On Demand customers). Sounds good! We are meeting with those teams to get those services available to you. Sorry no dates, but starting meetings this week.
And for those who say that we don't support rotation. Can you send me an email with some screen shots? Our app does support rotation to the wide-screen view. Just make sure your rotation button (like on the iPhone) is unlocked and that other websites rotate just fine. If that is the case, email me so I can figure out what the problem is with our app, so we can fix it. A few folks have reported this and then basically said "never mind". so I am hoping it is just the locked orientation button (double click the iPhone button, scroll all the way to the left and and make sure the icon to the left of the play icons does NOT have the lock on it.
Tip of the Day:
Did you know your iPhone (and other phones) can save the credentials so you don't have to sign in every time? I can't tell you to do this, but if you have a passcode on your phone already you might be allowed to do this. Your call. If you save your credentials, even if you timeout, or haven't been to MOS all week, your credentials will be ready to go. Check it out on your phone!
Blackberry and Android also have stored password apps. We are not in that business, so I don't want to suggest any, but feel free to post a comment with a suggestion.
On Android (for my Samsung) - I installed the Oracle app 1.3.5. Swipped the toolbar over to "Support" and was able to sign in AND have the device remember my password. Cool...
Continue to give us feedback and ideas for features!
