The tagline for this blog is Work where you want to be and much of what makes that possible is the 3rd party application developers that enhance the productivity options of mobile devices. Michael Compeau sent me some news about a new mobile application, TrailGuide, that is an optimized mobile client for the Basecamp web-based project management and collaboration application. TrailGuide works with Windows Mobile Smartphone and Pocket PC devices and lets you access and edit your project data on the go.

While Basecamp is a web-based application, most mobile web browsers don't really support using it efficiently on the device so the TrailGuide application allows you to have a stand-alone application that provides you with a powerful tool. TrailGuide lets you access and use the Basecamp Messages, To-Do Lists, Milestones, and Files. You can view and edit projects either online or offline. A server is also used to communicate between the mobile client and Basecamp you data is safe and secure.
