On behalf of the Saba Mobile Team, I am proud to announce that Saba People Cloud users can now download the new People Cloud Android Application on Google Play. It's available today on phones and tablets with Android version 2.3 and above.

Since launching Saba People Cloud on iPhone and iPad earlier this year, thousands of users have engaged with their co-workers on-the-go using our native application available in the Apple App Store. The mobile collaboration application is the easiest way to like and share activities, start meetings, send/receive private messages, view profiles, and complete many other activities.  We've been pleased with the high level of engagement we've seen from our users.

 

Built for Android

Saba People Cloud for Android ensures that Android users no longer have to look at their iOS co-workers with envy. Extending to Android devices magnifies our reach and will accelerate adoption and usage of Saba People Cloud across all screens.

It's no secret that Android has exploded in popularity worldwide. In recent reports, device makers using Google's Android shipped a staggering 136 million units worldwide in Q3 2012, capturing 75% of worldwide smartphone shipments. Android is turning out to be a juggernaut that's showing no signs of slowing down and we're excited to be on this platform.
