Broadchoice Workspace Beta starts soon

October 10, 2008 ·

Things have been a bit quiet on my blog because I was in England for two weeks. Things have been a bit quiet on the Broadchoice blog too because the team has been busy with the Broadchoice Workspace, preparing for the upcoming beta program! Here's a screenshot of the latest internal build, running on my laptop (with real content!) - the navigation and layout has changed a bit since our earlier screenshots - but we're all using the Workspace in-house to collaborate on projects as we draw closer to launch:
(click for larger image) In addition to the AIR application, we're also working on an iPhone web application - built with CFML - that exposes all the Workspace content as well as providing the ability to send messages to spaces. Folks who sign up for the beta program will get to experience both of those! The beta will start next week on a first come, first served basis (so those who have already signed up will get their login credentials and access instructions around the 15th - thank you for your patience!).

    @Mark, as Lola says, it also looks like Apple Mail - and several other Apple applications as well as third-party applications that run on OS X. Apple have done an excellent job in creating a slick, intuitive UI that OS X application developers all try to follow. It seems like a good idea to follow the lead of such folks and create an application that is inline with well-established UI best practices.
