The Widget

To-Do Lists

Take control of your email and calendar. The app lets you filter your actions to see only the most pressing deadlines. It can send actionable notifications to your locked screen, so you don’t have to be using the app to know what’s due.

Message Threads. View image.

Message Threads

Enterprise communication should feel as fluid as it does in a messaging app. That’s why IBM Verse’s intelligent threading model in iOS lets you review full conversation threads and individual messages. And the Android mobile app makes it easy to start a real-time chat with colleagues instead of waiting for their emails.

Now available for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android (smartphone and tablet).
