Talk about great timing!
A big thanks to webOSNation.com and @TeckieGirl for the review of DataJog on the site today. Make sure to follow both of them on Twitter. We’re a tight knit group and app features like this help keep developers engaged.
As we said before, we started with webOS and we’ll end with webOS. As DataJog is an Enyo app, it only makes sense to develop it on the platform it was designed for and that is webOS.
And that brings us to DataJog 3.0 and friends. The Friends feature of DataJog is complete.
You can add friends and send things to each other. Just as the original pairing process was painless, so is registering a friend. All you need is their pairing code and off you go.
We look forward to even more enhancements making DataJog your best choice when trying to send something to a device.
DataJog for Android is now in the Google Play market. DataJog is now truly cross-platform with native apps for webOS and Android. And yes, you guessed it, iOS is next.
DataJog for Android
There’s a little magic behind DataJog called Enyo, which was originally released with the HP TouchPad. Fast forward a few months and Enyo was open sourced. It took a little re-design to make it just right in Android. The app settings and menus are true activities like other Android apps.
So grab your free copy of DataJog on Android and let us know what you think!
DataJog v2.2 now allows you to send directly between devices. Just enter the text or link to send and it will appear on the other device.
We also have reset the trial counters so everyone gets another try!

Big thanks to Gizmo21 over at webosnation.com! He created a homebrew patch for DataJog. Read more about it at webosnation.com
He has created a patch that adds ‘Send via DataJog’ to the built-in webOS browser. His work has inspired us to create some more patches (coming soon) – like one to create a new memo via launch params – which is missing in the memo app!
Be sure to give him ‘Thanks’ via the forums.
Here’s a quick look at what’s coming in DataJog 2.1!
