All new LuxSci “Mobile Site” for mobile web-based access .

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

LuxSci has had a “mobile site” for a long time — called the “Xpress Portal”.  The Xpress portal was designed for narrow interfaces and did not use any JavaScript or cookies — to make browsing fast, simple, and work on almost any device.  However, the Xpress portal was getting dated and not taking advantages of the features present in modern mobile devices (e.g. iPhones, iPads, Androids, etc.)

LuxSci has revised the Xpress portal from the ground up.  It is now simply called the Luxsci “Mobile Site”.  The Mobile Site:

New “Mobile Mode” for PDAs and Smart Phones

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

LuxSci has offered an “Xpress” WebMail portal for many years.  The portal is fast, simple, and works with most devices because it does not use any JavaScript or cookies, and uses few images.  The Xpress portal is good for security, privacy, and access from legacy devices, as well as over very slow connections.

However, the mobile device landscape is quickly changing.  Starting with the iPhone and its full-featured Safari web browser, to the Android, the Palm Pre, and the availability of browsers like OperaMini on many phones, it is now the case that many “cutting edge” phones actually have fast web browsers that fully support JavaScript, AJAX, CSS, and broadband — all the technologies formerly the purview of the desktop.  Their major drawback, however, is still the very small screen. Many of these browsers work perfectly well with most web sites, including LuxSci’s full-featured WebMail portal; however, it can be problematic and painful to use and navigate sites designed for large displays on these device’s small screens.

Enter LuxSci’s new “Mobile Mode”.  Mobile Mode is a new feature of LuxSci’s regular WebMail interface that is available when it detects that you are accessing it using a mobile device, such as an iPhone.

LuxSci has completed the major re-design of its WebAides collaboration tools; a final installment brings all WebAides up-to-date in terms of functionality and the user interface in both the Full and Xpress WebMail portals.  The project to modernize our collaboration suite began more than one year ago.  Of course, “final installment” is a misnomer as the job is never done — periodic feature updates are scheduled.

Significant updates include:

JAVA Applets Debut in LuxSci WebMail

Monday, January 26th, 2009

LuxSci has added plug-ins to its WebMail application in version 10.10 of LuxSci’s software which includes two JAVA applets.  So, were we hesitant to add JAVA applets, FLASH, ActiveX, and other plugins in the first place?  And why the sudden change of heart?  What does this mean for our customers who are concerned about security or who do not want or cannot use JAVA applets?

Collaboration: New Improved Document Management

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

LuxSci has re-written its web-based document management interface from the ground up to provide users with a fast, modern, featureful experience.  The WebAides Documents’ user interface now matches that of WebMail, Address Books, Calendars, and Tasks. Additionally, some new components have been added to make it very easy to upload and download large numbers of files to the Documents WebAides.
