Assembla is proud to announce the official release of Assembla Touch, a free, full-featured app for the iPhone and iPad that brings Assembla's task and project management features to anyone with an iPhone or iPad.

The new application syncs with any project that has the Tickets tool installed. From your iOS device, you can easily see project tasks, create new tickets, edit or comment on existing tickets, attach files, and move tickets around between milestones. 

Key Features:

Create new tickets in seconds:
Think of a great idea or something that needs to be done? Quickly create a new ticket in seconds. Assign it to a team member to work on or maybe to you to add more details later - either way, it is posted so it will not be forgotten.

Make mobile testing faster and more efficient:
Assembla Touch makes mobile testing a breeze. Find a bug or issues? Just snap a screenshot on your mobile device, go to the application, and attach the screenshot to a new ticket - you never have to leave your phone or tablet.

We find this to be extremely useful and a must for anyone testing mobile applications or mobile-optimized sites.

Works from anywhere - even when you're not connected:
Assembla Touch syncs your project data onto your mobile device meaning it is always available, even when you are not connected. You can create new tickets and edit existing ones while "offline" and simply sync when you can connect.  

Plan sprints and iterations:
Assembla Touch provides a mobile version of Assembla's Agile Planner making it easy to plan your next sprint or iteration by moving tasks from your backlog into your next release. Drag and drop task into the desired order and your team will know exactly what to work on next. 

Find exactly what you're looking for:
View tickets by project, milestone, users, or use a search filter to find exactly what you need, when you need it. You can search across multiple projects and and milestones.

Security on the go:
Assembla Touch uses HTTPS to communicate with the Assembla servers so that your password is never exposed on public networks. 

Download the app today from the App Store. 

Let us what what you think:

Since this is the initial release, we would like to hear from you. Please leave your comments below and we will take them into consideration as we continue to improve the app. 

Update: For our Android users, we are working on the Andorid app that should officially be released in a few weeks.

Kudos to the Assembla team. Care to give us hints on how the "offline" sync works? Are you using HTML5 localStorage?

@Patrick Thomas: It's actually a local SQL database.

@Richard, we are working on the Android app and it will be ready very soon. We will post an announcement when it is available.

no cardwall? Otherwise looks good. UX is pretty weird to have that giant empty landing page, but it works.

Great addition to the iPhone and iPad, but why oh why can't we update and/or close tickets??

App looks good except I can only see tickets from two of my three projects (using the filter). The empty project has the most tickets (700) so maybe that is part of the problem.

i don't see any tickets :-(

Why support only for iOS5 ? What about the rest of the users which are on 4?

Unable to set Assembla credentials as a Google Account user (current password never set, thus impossible to set a new one for the mobile app)

Couple of comments that hopefully answer some of the questions: 
We only support OS5 and iOS6 because we needed features in the app that we're not available on iOS4.  
@duk3ofEd: You can update and close tickets. Just select "Edit Ticket" on any ticket detail screen. 
If you don't see any tickets, please contact tech support. We've identified a couple of edge cases where the tickets don't show up.  
@jody: Regarding the UX design. This big "empty" space will be filled with the stream in one of the next updates coming down the pipe.  
@Will: Please contact tech support.
