Roughly 3 weeks ago we launched Chimpadeedoo, a MailChimp app for iPad, and it’s already been downloaded over 1,000 times. So first off, we wanted to say thanks for all your support and feedback! We’re glad to hear that you’re enjoying the app and thinking of innovative uses for it.
Now that version 1.1 is live in the app store, I wanted to mention just a couple noteworthy things that we haven’t blogged about yet.
Once you’ve downloaded the app and connected it with your MailChimp account, it isn’t totally clear how to access the settings. Just touch the top right corner (regardless of whether your iPad is oriented horizontally or vertically) to access the control panel.
This is where you can change your theme, choose the list you’d like to add people to, edit your on-screen details and more.
Finally, one of the coolest and most useful features that we haven’t yet mentioned is that Chimpadeedoo will also store email addresses when you’re offline or don’t have an internet connection! This is great news for those of you who may be at a trade show or conference because it means one less device that you have to purchase expensive daily wi-fi for. Or imagine that you’re coaching your daughter’s soccer team and want to start an email list for all the team parents. There’s no need to worry about not having an internet connection out on the field because Chimpadeedoo will store the email addresses offline until you’re back in range of wi-fi.
Looks like maybe you might be able to justify your iPad as a business expense after all!
Coming Soon To Chimpadeedoo:
- additional themes (please let us know what you’d like to see by leaving a comment below)
- the ability to use your own photo as a background (great for corporations who want to use their logo as a way to brand the app)
