While it takes a learning curve for people who are new to PHP programming, Podio is the perfect platform to develop any kind of automation you need! I am a real estate broker and use it as a CRM, prospecting tool and a data aggregator which helps me keep track of the market in real time. While it took me a long time to develop the tools, and the skill set it takes to program them, it was well worth it. Once you learn how to develop automations, you have a skill set, they could be used in any industry. I wouldn’t trade Podio for the world!
I decided to check out podio for a new work project. It has been about a year since I used it but I remembered clearly how much I liked the intuitive layout and the effortless syncing with google docs. It was great in the past. Now, I cannot even sign in to Podio’s mobile app. I have tried signing in with my google account, creating a new podio account using my google account, trying again with a new google account, deleting the app and re-downloading it, but I keep getting the same result. As soon as I give podio full permission to access my google drive, the app freezes briefly before going black and exiting the app. Developers, I have much respect and admiration for what you do and all that you have created. I trust that this is only a temporary bug and you are probably already working on this. If it helps, I’m running iOS 12.1 on an iPhone 7, but this problem seems to be an authentication error related problem. Best of luck and thank you in advance to any response.
Almost perfect. iPad app is missing one big thing though.
It is difficult to see an overview of the calendar on the iPad app. The only option for viewing the calendar on the iPad app is a list view. And that list view doesn’t even show the day of the week (ie: “Monday” “Tuesday”). This makes it difficult to schedule things with my clients. I always have to jump back over to the iPhone app or a web browser. Will gladly give this app 5 stars when this is possible.
I am unable to log into my account on the mobile app. I have been attempting to log into Podio on with the mobile app for the last two months on my iPhone. Every time I attempt to log into the mobile app I see a blank screen, it never officially logs me into my account, or none of my workstations, instead it is completely blank. I use the desktop version of podio regularly and I have the upgraded version which I pay $24 a month but now matter how many times I attempt to log in on my iPhone it never works.
Well...all of my Customer Base and profile info is stored on your platform. Do maintenance on a saved version of your system. Don’t shut down my company because you are fixing slowness issues. And for the record, my stuff was working great. And you can’t tell me when you’ll be back up either?? I just purchased your best version upgrade of Podio too. I’ll be looking for another CRM for our company while this is going on. Or I’ll accept a full refund in lieu of leaving your company. And reverse my one star if you promise not to do this again. You cost me an important deal today and we are dead in the water until you fix whatever is supposedly broken.
When you tap on a notification box, if the app is not already open, it frequently takes me to a screen that displays “check your internet connection.” My connection is fine. I then have to press back, and then tap on the notification through the Podio interface again to actually load the data. Furthermore, notifications would be much more useful if they actually displayed some of the text of comments, that way I could determine at a glance if I need to engage. Podio development has slowed to a crawl since they were acquired by Cisco.
They get you started and you take up a bunch of time starting a database for free. Then, after adding like 20 contacts, you learn that you cannot add anyone else or will have to switch to a paid plan. That would be fine, but I don’t think the paid plan is worth $14/month. It’s pretty basic software, and a little bit dated in my opinion. Definitely not worth $168 PER YEAR, EVERY YEAR. I would value this software at a one time $50 license fee. That’s it.
In the new update we can now accidentally close out of any task we are doing by simply dragging down from the top. This is extremely frustrating when you accidentally do it by simply trying to scroll down and end up lose ALL your progress. By far the dumbest thing to come to this app, PLEASE FIX IT!!! It’s clearly slowing down productivity Omg you don’t have to even grab the top bar you can accidentally close it by just scrolling down from the top...who in their right might thought this would be a positive change? If you’re gonna try and be like Apple and modernize your app at least do it right
This application is convenient to have on the go. Some of the applications within the app are designed to work way better on desktop. If you have a Lot of customers, looking through them can be frustrating.
The mobile app works well except for ONE VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE. No matter what settings I put into Podio or my phone, not a single notification will display on the Podio app on my phone. It used to work, but no more. Nobody else in my organization can get notifications to work on their iPhones either. This is a critical issue.
I would love to see how 5-Star reviewers are using this app ( I mean that genuinely). All this app is good for me is receiving notifications and making comments. Theres features I use that I cannot view on the app. I certainly could not start a project from scratch. It’s great for instant notifications and communication but that’s really it.
Not user friendly, not intuitive, and redundant when trying to enter data. Too many tags, too many categories, too many subdivisions to label things that should be simple. Expect to spend more time entering info than reaching out to prospects.
The app has a great deal of flexibility in adding and editing data within Podio. But as you navigate the app every other edit causes the app to crash. Continuously crash. It is probably related to iOS 11 update but something needs addressed on Podio’s end since the new iOS has been introduced.
After hearing about it on a podcast, I thought Id try it out. Like the previous poster from a few days ago, I too cannot sign in with google. It shows me signed in, but then when I click on my id to access the app, it shuts down. This happened 4 times. Im so bummed bc I was hoping this would be what I needed to organize my projects.
Downloaded the app. Tried to sign up with my Google account and it crashed. Every single time, crashes. App won’t stay open so I tried on the website and it won’t work either. Tough to use a product you can’t actually get into.
