New Features In October | 10to8 Appointment Scheduling Software

Here are some of the improvements we released over the past month, discover the brand new features of 10to8 appointment scheduling software. Enjoy!

iPhone product improvements

We have recently made a number of improvements to make our iPhone web app as responsive and powerful as our Android and PC offerings.

Firstly, we’ve improved the speed of the product. Opening a booking, and moving between pages are now much faster than previously. Opening 10to8 for the first time in the day is also much faster, thanks to improvements to how we store data on the device.

Secondly, we have improved the “Add to Home Screen” option, so that when you open 10to8 from your home screen, the address bar is hidden and you can’t accidentally swipe the page backwards. It looks and feels just like a native app. Now you only need to re-add 10to8 to your homepage. For instructions on setting this up, check out our support material.

Finally, we fixed some glitches with how the keyboard appears when you are making a booking, which would sometimes cause the staff or location fields to scroll off the screen. These are actually bugs in iOS itself, but we have changed the behavior of our product in subtle ways so that these bugs don’t appear.

There is more to do – please reach out if you are an iPhone user and let us know how you get on.
