Back in November last year we announced Enlist, an elegant little app that turns your iPad into a beautiful subscribe form. The response has been amazing, with close to 6,000 downloads and lots of great stories from customers who love it. However, since the launch, there has been one bit of functionality that’s been requested more than anything else, which we’re excited to finally make available to you.
Hello, private label
While Enlist is perfect for anyone familiar with Campaign Monitor, it can be a tricky sell for our agency customers and resellers that might be pitching Campaign Monitor as their own app. Today we’re happy to announce a sister product to Enlist that provides the same great functionality, but doesn’t mention our service at all. You can also rest assured that we’ll be keeping it updated behind-the-scenes.
Enlist, now with lots of nice updates
While we’ve put a fair amount of energy into bringing you a white-label version to use, we haven’t overlooked a couple of improvements that were worth making in the original app. In fact, this release coincides with a timely update of Enlist, in which we’ve made some noticeable changes… And more subtle ones, too. For example, offline syncing is now rock solid, so you can confidently collect new subscribers, regardless of whether you’re connected to the Internet. When you get connected after being offline for a stint, a nice “Syncing” message will display when any subscribers you captured are synced back to your Campaign Monitor account:
We’ve also made the ‘unlock’ icon much more visible, especially for those of you using darker backgrounds. Plus, if you’ve set up an autoresponder for new subscribers, it will now be sent to anyone who subscribed while you were away from an Internet connection – that was our bad and we’re glad we got it fixed.
Across the app, we’ve squished a fair few bugs and generally made the app more reliable and hopefully, a pleasure to use. Of course, if you see anything that’s amiss or can suggest an improvement, be sure to let us know about it.
If you’ve already added Enlist to your iPad, be sure to get the recent update to take advantage of these changes. Otherwise, get it for free from the App Store and start collecting subscribers.
Thanks to everyone who wrote in requesting a white-label subscribe form app, or helped us improve Enlist. It’s always an exciting moment for us when we let loose with useful updates; now we have apps for everyone, we hope that we can share some of this excitement with both you and your clients, too.
