Conqu – one of the coolest Android apps outhere

Yesterday, fellow evangelist, Terry Ryan, showed me  a tablet app for Android called Conqu. After I installed and played with it for about 5 minutes, I said: “Wow! Mate, this is the coolest app for Android tablets ever!”.

The application helps you to “Get the things done” – by managing tasks. Here is a video and screenshots:

And by the way, this application is built using Flex 4.5 (“Hero”) and uses Adobe AIR for Android as a runtime. Now this is something pretty cool. Well done guys!!!

Because they use the Flash Plaform, it isn’t that hard to target other Flash supported devices such as: PlayBook, desktops, or iOS. In fact if you take a look at their roadmap, this is exactly what they are up to.

I really like the fact that they work on a feature that allows synchronization between devices over the cloud. This will facilitate team work and make this app an interesting and appealing choice for small/medium business.

Getting the App

You can install the application from here (for now there is only the tablet version) and here you can check the roadmap and features.

Congratulations to the people behind this project. I’m looking forward to testing their desktop/PlayBook/iPad versions and hope to meet them in person. I’m really curious to talk  about their experience building this app.

  1. As an AS3/Flex developer working myself on an AIR on Android tablet application I find it totally awesome :)

    As a regular user though, I feel like it’s overly complicated and daunting as compared with my trusty pencil/scraps of paper :))

    Or maybe it’s just me aging? :P

  2. Thanks so much for the review we are glad that you like it. We are planning to write a series of posts about how was/is the process of the development of the app. As you mentioned, we will deploy it to multiple screens and we are trying to reuse as much as possible. That’s why AIR was a great choice for that task. Hope we meet some day to chat about it too.
