“The app is beautiful, intuitive, and fast,” Asana’s Emily Kramer wrote in a blog post on the news today. “You can move your work forward, keep in touch with your team, and get the information you need, right from your Android device.”
The new version features Google’s Material design principles — and it’s getting some positive early reviews from users.
But it follows several months of negative feedback during which people have asked for a native app. So it’s fitting for Asana, backed by the likes of Andreessen Horowitz and Benchmark, to give users what they want.
Facebook employees Dustin Moskovitz and Justin Rosenstein started San Francisco-based Asana in 2009.
The startup has more rollouts in the making.
“We plan to rapidly release improvements to both Android and iOS,” Kramer wrote in today’s blog post. “AND, we are also working on major design updates to our other platforms. You’ll hear (and see) more about these in the coming months.”
