While we were working hard on a number of applications for free and open source market one of the application which was released by us was the CiviSync Mobile app for Android. You can download the app here.
The App currently only supports read only mode and allows you to check your contacts, organisations, households, activities and groups. The app is developed using PhoneGap and hence it is easy to convert the app to an iPhone, Windows Mobile or Blackberry app when the need or the requirement comes from the market.
Once again the first version relied a bit on our extended API provided by CiviSync CMS component for Joomla and Drupal but in the next version we have moved away from using CiviSync CMS and towards using the native API for the search results.
In order to use CiviSync Mobile you need the following details:
- Site Key and
- API Key for the user should be stored in the database of CiviCRM.
CiviSync CMS is still the perfect and only extension available for CiviCRM which allows you to manage the API keys for the users and hence control who has access to the API and who doesn’t.
Our site www.targetintegration.com is currently being updated to store some wiki articles on the installation and usage of the application. Please let us know your comments here and if you have any questions while using the app please visit the forum on our website.
