New and Improved App Gallery

14 January 2013 by Andie Dodd

Recently, the Fulcrum website has been completely redesigned. In addition to loads of new content, new plans, and a totally new look, we have also made some changes to the new and improved app gallery.

If you haven’t heard about our app gallery before, it is a library of pre-made Fulcrum apps that can be loaded into your account. You can use any one of them as is for a project or modify it to meet your specific needs. You can use the apps for inspiration or to get ideas about how to design and format your own unique app. Additionally, loading one of these pre-made apps into your account can be an easy way to simply familiarize yourself with Fulcrum.

The main page of the app gallery shows a variety of industry categories such as environmental, disaster response, transportation, and utilities. From here you can select an industry that interests you, or hopefully applies to what you will be using Fulcrum for. Clicking one of these industries will lead you to a list of apps for that category.

One of our updates to the gallery is the implementation of tags. For example, clicking the tag for inspection will lead you to a list of apps that are for field inspections. This feature will soon be integrated with search capabilities for an easier way to find and navigate to a specific app. To view an app, click the ‘app details’ button.

The app listing has been completely redesigned. Where there were previously basic screenshots of each app, we now have an interactive preview of the app on the right side of the page. You can click on different fields to view the pre-loaded choices or descriptions, if applicable, as well as scroll through longer apps. There is a short description of each app, as well as a list of tags. All of this can help give you a better idea of what the app includes before adding it to you account. You can now add an app directly into your Fulcrum account from the listing by clicking the yellow button that says ‘add this app to Fulcrum’. You can also share each app on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.

Feel free to email us with suggestions if you don’t see the right app for what you need. This could be an app you have already built in your account and would like to share with the Fulcrum community, or simply an idea for an app that would be a nice addition to the gallery. We are always adding new apps to the gallery, so be sure to check back once in a while!
