Basecamp 3 for Android 3.5 — Catch Up!

When you’ve been away from your Basecamp 3 account for a stretch of time and need to get current, it can be tough to know where to start. On top of that, opening each Hey! item individually can take a while.

That’s why the Android team (Jay, Jamie, and Dan) developed the new Catch Up feature, available in the latest update to the Android app.

Android Catch Up — part of a balanced diet.

How it works

When you have two or more unread Hey! items in your Inbox, you’ll see a “Catch Up” button.

Tap that button, you’ll go to Catch Up mode, where you can swipe through your unread items one by one. The unread count will appear at the top and your items are optimized for easy reading.

My favorite part is using “Mark as Unread” to keep items in the Hey! inbox. This is perfect for when you want to quickly browse through everything, but give a second look important things later.

Here’s what Catch Up looks like in the app, start to finish:
