7 apps that make Jira mobile-friendly

This is a guest post by Deviniti – your guide to the universe of digital transformation and enterprise software. As an Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner Enterprise and a Platinum Marketplace Partner, they’ve helped improve Jira’s user experience and add useful functionalities for over 2500 business teams around the globe. Apart from providing expert services and developing over 20  apps on the Atlassian Marketplace, they’re also sharing knowledge on the subject with useful tutorials and guides.

The digital solutions market has experienced a revolution of its own in recent years. One of the most important changes was the transfer of most of the traffic generated on the Internet from stationary to mobile devices. This is due to the easy availability and universality of mobile devices: nowadays having a smartphone is as normal and obvious as having a Casio watch in the 90s. In addition, thanks to mobile devices, we can always have access to all relevant information and stay in touch with customers and colleagues. This trend was also noticed by Atlassian, which resulted in the creation at first Cloud mobile app for Jira and Confluence, and then the mobile category on the Marketplace. By creating apps for Jira and other Atlassian products, Marketplace vendors take into account their availability and compatibility with all devices and mobile operating systems. Nowadays, most popular apps already have a version dedicated to mobile devices. We present a list of applications that, in our opinion, will facilitate the use of mobile Jira the most.
