Safe4 launches new mobile interface

Safe4 version 4.4 has now been released, and provides an interface specifically designed for the mobile user. Making use of “responsive” design techniques, Safe4 will detect that a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet is being used, and will change the interface accordingly. This will assist users by altering the format of the display depending on whether the device is being held in portrait or landscape mode.

Since many users will still need to access some of the core Safe4 functionality from their mobile devices, such as renaming files or reviewing file histories, an option to use the standard desktop web user interface on the mobile device is retained.

Another useful facility is the ability to upload photographs from a tablet or smartphone directly into the vault of the user’s choosing. This has been verified on Apple devices, including iPhones and iPads, and on Android smartphones. Again, this will assist users who need to capture an image of a paper document, or some other evidential record in photographic form, by enabling instantaneous upload. Safe4 will notify authorised users of the upload in the normal way, and will update audit trails accordingly.

The future development programme for Safe4 continues to bring forward additional capabilities, to enhance the service by increasing the functionality and flexibility of the system, and by building on the best-in-class security and reliability attributes that Safe4 has established.
