DejaOffice for iOS Receives Major Update

Don’t let the version number fool you – DejaOffice 1.2.6 for iOS is a major update. While you won’t notice too many cosmetic changes (yet), we’ve done quite a bit of work under the hood.

The biggest focus of this update has been DejaCalendar. We’ve completely rewritten the calendar to improve stability and sync reliability. Right away, you’ll notice a much smoother experience when using the app. This is just the beginning for us, however. We have exciting plans for DejaOffice!

Yes, the majority of the work we’ve done in this update has been under the hood, but we have added a few cosmetic changes that I wanted to highlight. On the iPhone and iPod Touch, you’ll notice updated display options and search options in DejaCalendar. On the iPad, we’ve added popovers in the edit screens – a small change, but one we’ve found dramatically enhances your workflow! Check out the gallery below to see what’s new.

 

DejaOffice 1.2.6 is out now for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Check the updates tab in the App Store, or download it here today. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback – share your thoughts in the comments below!

  1. i am using DejaOffice app on iphone 4s that does not search text in the contact note

    i am using 14 days trial version & thinking to buy software, please help i want that feature

  2. I mean this is the smallest font I have ever seen on a phone hands down.  There must be a way to enlarge

    • We have 3 font sizes available – in the Settings for DejaContacts and DejaCalendar there are font size options. “Normal” is the largest option. Let me know if that helps!

  3. I have the same problem as the user below… Downloaded the update and opened the app, waited and waited and waited until my iPhone returned to the main home screen – I just get a blank black screen and nothing happens.  I can’t access any of my contacts, calendar or memos!!!!

    • Are you running DejaOffice 1.2.7? It just landed in the App Store yesterday and it should fix the bug you’re experiencing.

  4. Downloaded the update and like requested waited and then waited and then waited until my iPhone returned to the main home screen – I just get a blank black screen and nothing happens – last time you did an update i had a nightmare and support was less than helpfull especiall as I am on GMT – I dont know why i pay for wireless sync for this it has never worked properly 🙁

      • 17/11 – Here we go again – I get an update advice on my iPhone at the weekend on Deja Office and what do you know I update it and then try to sync I get this message – “No user Packets. please sync the PC to this account”
         
        Look my issue here is I am not an IT tech-head after you fixed this after the last Deja Office update it was working properly now another update and not it’s not?
         Why is this a problem, continuing problem?
         It’s really making me want to look for a different solution – it just needs to work and keep working through your updates – surley that’s a basic requirement these days for any software?
         – ok so how do we sort this out this time?

        • It looks like our Support department is on the case. If you haven’t heard from them already, you should soon! Otherwise, if there’s anything more I can do to help, let me know.
