App Store Description

Outpost 2 does NOT work with Basecamp Next!

37signals has yet to release a public API for this new version of Basecamp and until they do, Outpost will ONLY WORK WITH BASECAMP ACCOUNTS THAT HAVE NOT UPGRADED.

If you signed up for Basecamp on or after March 6th 2012, you are most likely using this latest version of Basecamp and Outpost is NOT going to work for you.

More information can be found at

If you use Basecamp®, you use it because you want to be productive. You use it because you want a simple solution to what once was a big problem for you. Now, you can use Basecamp® on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad just as you've always wanted to.

You can be more productive than ever before with the help of Outpost 2.

Outpost 2 is by far the most complete Basecamp® client around for your iOS devices. You can do just about anything that you can do from the regular Basecamp® website; except now it's optimized 100% for your iOS device.

Full iPad and iPhone 4 support (Universal Binary)

Amazing iPad User Interface

Brand New Calendar View - View your project the way you view your schedule. See milestones, ToDos and everything all on a beautiful calendar and get a better idea of your project's progress.

Multi-Account Support - If you're like us, you use a lot of Basecamp accounts. Use them all with Outpost 2.

Message Support - Write new messages, read others and comment all from within the app. You can even view/add attachments directly from the app!

ToDo Support - Full ToDo support has been added with the ability to view/edit/delete lists, mark ToDos as done/undone, add/edit/delete ToDos and even assign them to specific people.

Time Support - Record and view time entries directly from the app.

Milestone Support - View, mark completed or create new ones.

Contacts - View your contacts and even integrate them with your Address Book contacts.

Partial Offline Support - Once you download Messages, To-Dos and Milestones from your project, Outpost saves them so you don't need to connect again to re-download them. This helps out big time when you need to reference a message that you saw early while on the train.

** Note: Outpost 2 does NOT support Writeboards at this time. 37signals (the makers of Basecamp) does not offer a Writeboard API and until they do, we won't be able to offer this feature in a reliable way.

Outpost 2's History
Outpost 2 is the culmination of over a year's worth of work since Groundwork 1.0 was introduced to the AppStore in late 2008. Groundwork and Outpost were the first two Basecamp® applications to be released to the AppStore and they did well to compete against each other. However, we always admired Outpost's beautiful UI and fantastic UX. After feeling like we could do better, we went back to the drawing board and after a few months, Groundwork 2.0 was born. A completely re-designed and re-developed version. We were proud and users were happy. It was great, but we wanted more and so did our users. We wanted Groundwork 3 to be huge. The iPad was released and it was our chance to make a big splash...but how? Well, it just so happens that David Kaneda of Morfunk (the developer behind Outpost 1.0) worked across the street from us in Palo Alto. We met up with him and after a few coffee dates we decided that Groundwork 3.0 should be reborn as Outpost 2.0.
