PBwiki Mobile Edition for iPhone and Blackberry

Ever needed to access your PBwiki using an iPhone or Blackberry? Now you can, with PBwiki Mobile Edition.

PBwiki Mobile Edition automatically recognizes when you’re using a smartphone to access your PBwiki, and serves up a blazingly fast mobile-optimized interface. We’ve stripped out everything that’s extraneous to minimize load times and maximize the content you see.

And PBwiki Mobile Edition is available free of charge to our Professional and Professional Plus customers.

With Mobile Edition, you can:

  • Search your PBwiki (including uploaded files) to answer a question
  • Access policies/procedures/manuals
  • Download files to send via mobile email
  • Keep up with your team’s activities via notifications and recent changes
  • Provide instant feedback via comment
  • Record thoughts via comment or new page

Here’s what InformationWeek had to say about PBwiki Mobile Edition:

“The mobile device is a logical extension for collaboration tools, particularly given today’s fractured work environment, where contributors may be on the road more than in an office. With the digital tether of the iPhone or Blackberry, road warriors can satisfy the urge to check in on a project, make comments and keep the ball rolling.”

To try out PBwiki Mobile Edition, just visit your PBwiki using your iPhone or Blackberry (if you’re on a Professional plan) or check out our sample wiki at http://mobileedition.pbworks.com.

While we only officially support the iPhone and Blackberry, other smartphones will probably work.  Begin your Android lobbying now!

  1. Put Windows Mobile on the list 😉 Actually, I have been already using the full edition (for desktop browsers) of pbwiki on my Windows Mobile smartphone under IE Mobile and Opera mini, and it works fine. If the mobile edition was free, I might use it, but actually the full version works fine on my phone! But still, why give iPhone and Blackberry all the attention (and Android)? I just checked the test wiki, and it works fine on my Windows Mobile phone. So you can add it to your list! 😉

  2. 1. Ditto what john said
    2. I have a photo of David starting to hack this feature – during dinner at our workshop in Woudschoten. Where shall I post it?

  3. The full version worked fine on my iPhone but this is great for speed. What I really want to do though is edit my wiki on the go. Nice that we can add a page with basic text (although it wouldn’t take my new page) but full editing would be fantastic. Add that and you’re golden.

    When switching over to the full version it seems we can’t switch back to mobile, even when closing the browser window and logging back in. That would be helpful.

    Thanks for the continued improvements.
