I often have the situation, that I need to have a quick view for finding the explanation of a qualfier or to check in which group a segment is into.Sitting at the desk, I can use the webbrowser and surf to the UN/EDIFACT site , but most of the time my monitor is full of application windows, so I have to <tab> between the UN/EDIFACT directory and my application or guideline or notepad with the EDIFACT message. So I searched for an iPhone app and didn’t find any. That was the moment I dediced to create an own one and here it is.Meanwhile a had other situation e.g. a guideline meeting between two partners where a quick look in an iPhone App would have made the meeting much faster and more interactive. Nobody has to hide himself behind a laptop screen.
The target group of this App are EDI-developer, EDI-consultants or intersted people. EDI is a perfect field of activity for those who are interested in IT and Economics.
