Pocket PA is primarily a ‘web’ application – also known as Web app. This is a computer program / software tool that uses web browsers (e.g. Safari, Mozilla, Chrome, Firefox) and web technology (e.g. the Cloud, web servers) to perform tasks over the internet.
As this is our chosen platform, it’s been made very mobile friendly on both Apple and Android smart phones, tablets and computers and available on any device that has access to the internet via 3G/4G or Wi-Fi.
Webapps don’t need to be ‘installed’ or downloaded to a hard drive or take up storage space and any updates and fixes to bugs can be made very quickly.
We recommend that you create a shortcut and bookmark the app so its easily available on your smartphone home screen for speedy access and daily use. Once you have done this, it can be used just like most regular apps except you need to be ‘connected’
All your information is stored securely on the cloud and available from anywhere you log in to Pocket PA from and at any time. Everything is synchronised across the platforms so entering in details on your smart phone means it will show up virtually instantly on your tablet or computer if you are logged in simultaneously.
This is super handy as it means you cannot ever ‘lose’ any of your vital and precious business information - which could happen if you lost a paper diary / Filofax or if you had a laptop stolen with your income and expenses spreadsheets on it.
If the worst happened and your mobile phone got lost or misplaced or stolen, you can log straight back in to get all your Pocket PA account info from any new phone (or friends device) or on a computer and everything will be just where you left it.
Backups are regularly undertaken, and we take your security and user experience very seriously and are therefore always working to ensure it’s the best it could possibly be from any and every device that you want to access and use Pocket PA from.
