SOESD HelpDesk now supports all popular smartphone and tablet platforms.
HelpDesk Mobile allows technicians to view and update tickets on the go and turns your HelpDesk requestor database into an address book.

Seriously cross-platform & cross-device

For device support we've taken a graded mobile browser approach that allows older browsers to gracefully downgrade but still function. The list of mobile devices and their browser support is as follows (A grade being the best).
A High Quality. A browser thatís capable of, at minimum, utilizing media queries (a requirement for jQuery Mobile). These browsers will be actively tested against but may not receive the full capabilities of jQuery Mobile.
B Medium Quality. A capable browser that doesnít have enough market share to warrant day-to-day testing. Bug fixes will still be applied to help these browsers.
C Low Quality. A browser that is not capable of utilizing media queries. They wonít be provided any jQuery Mobile scripting or CSS (falling back to plain HTML and simple CSS).
Upcoming browser. This browser is not yet released but is in alpha/beta testing.
