I disagree. This and Fluid are just window wrappers. They’re not native apps. A native app, for instance, would be integrated with the OS and provide native support for notifications for instance. Or offline support. These window wrappers do neither of that.
Dear Michael, I feel also extremely outraged by this kind of behavior. Actually, I got tired of it, and am looking for a different software, where we could find a little more respect for their customer base.
Agreed. I need a Mac app. I love Asana, but sometimes I have no Internet available on my Mac and I have to reboot. Then I lose everything. I don’t want to move away from Asana, but I’m now considering alternatives, just because of this.
Native app is necessary for desktops.
I heard that, Mac OS will also support IOS apps with new version. This might help us to use Asana app on Mac if Asana doesn’t do anything for native app. But it won’t solve the Windows users problem.
I find it adds a layer of difficulty to have Asana isolated in a browser. It would be very helpful and encourage productivity and organization if Asana developed a desktop app (mac for me please) that I could use without needing to use another software (Safari, Chrome, etc.) to access it.
I also want to put in a vote for an app that I can use offline and then have it sync when it gets a connection. I would be willing to pay for the app if I knew it worked. The AppSana reviews are so poor that I haven’t been willing to pay for them. I’m hoping Asana will build one. Is there any intent to do so in the near term?
Native Mac app (and Windows also) is a must.
Working on projects often requires offline access (trains, planes, etc)
Having all the time browser open is rubbish, specially that Chrome/Explorer are not the best for privacy @Asana Team - you just announced a great cash injection so invest what Trello and others already done
As a heads up, while many can use Fluid or nativefier to fake a desktop app, some of us work in organizations with tight controls around what we can install or do on our devices.
A native app, vettable by IT security departments, is a MUST. My team is using the free version of Asana, and we’ve considered becoming paying customers in order to get the Timeline feature - but the lack of native app is a real barrier to us fully adopting this platform.
