Time Manager Mobile 3.5
A fully customizable, extensible and programmable web-based calendaring and information management system and application development platform for smartphones.
1. Desktop Client - The desktop client installs on your computer as any other software would. With its rich GUI interface, the desktop client provides a superset of features found on the mobile client. As a multiplatform Java application, the desktop client operates on Windows, Macs and Linux-based computers.
2. Mobile Client - The mobile client is hosted on an application server and it can be accessed from any web-enabled smartphone. This covers all major smartphone platforms which includes Microsoft Windows Mobile Smartphones, Symbian-based Nokia Smartphones, Palm, RIM Blackberry, Linux-based Smartphones, Apple iPhone and Google Android.
These two applications work hand-in-hand to provide a complete computing experience for you.
- Data Integrity: Your data is centrally located on a web server that hosts TM Mobile on the internet. This data is then accessed by both the mobile thin client and desktop client sharing the same data file format to store information.
- Data Security: Access to both mobile thin client and desktop client is restricted by a shared customer ID and password. The modifiable password and the static customer ID ensure that your data can travel across various hardware devices and not be accessible to unauthorized users .
- Application Mobility: The software application for TM Mobile is highly mobile and transferable across many devices and platforms. The mobile client can be accessed from any device with full HTML capabilities. The desktop client software can be downloaded to any computer with broadband web access and installed within a matter of minutes on any of the supported platforms.
- Hybrid Application Design: TM Mobile is designed to take advantage of the best of both worlds: the lightness and mobility of a thin mobile client which makes best use of the limited resources and restricted form factor of smartphones and the power and flexibility of a desktop client which provides the customer with a rich feature set and expanded functionality generally not within the purview of a thin mobile client.
- Segmented Functionality: The thin mobile client provides a subset of desktop client functionality and features. This segmented functionality is purposefully designed to provide the mobile client with a unique set of features that is suitable for smartphone's computing power and form factor restrictions. So while the desktop client serves as the primary tool for editing and reviewing data, the mobile client makes data conveniently available on the mobile platform providing only the editing and updating features the on-the-go customer needs .
- File-Based Data Storage: TM Mobile data is saved in a propriety file format that is highly compressed to create the smallest possible footprint necessary for rapid network file transfers to and from the desktop environment. Periodic automatic server uploads ensures that data is incrementally saved. This "batch" file update methodology reduces the need for frequent per-record updates that take place in a database model and necessitate a robust network connection. In the event of network connection instability, the data save process is performed to the local media to ensure data integrity and subsequently re-tried at regular intervals to update the server when the connection is re-established.
- Quasi-Network Independence: The file-based data storage provides quasi-network connectivity independence for the desktop client. In a client server model, once the desktop client loses the network connection, the application has to shut down. Whereas in the TM Mobile batch model, the application continues working and saving data locally while it is waiting for the network connection to be reestablished. In a web-based application that lacks a desktop client, if the network connection is down, the application is totally unusable and consequently you become unproductive on the application (such as during air travel) .
- Multi-user Facility: The current TM Mobile application architecture allows multi-user access to data files stored on the server. The key to data access is the customer ID and password and once data is loaded into a desktop or online environment, all other attempts to view or modify the you data are blocked by the application until the current session is terminated.
