These changes as suggested is now part of updated version of the application available on iOS App store and the company is confident about these improvements that will satisfy earlier raised concerns about both the user experience as well as the business model.

CEO of Basecamp Jason Fried in a statement said –

We’ve also accelerated our multi-user HEY for work offering where the company pays but the employees don’t. This brings HEY in line with Basecamp, and dozens of other high profile multi-platform enterprise offerings that have been permitted in the App Store for a decade. We just completed onboarding multiple companies, we’re running all our Basecamp company email through HEY, and thousands of businesses have joined the HEY for Work waitlist already. HEY for Work uses the same iOS app as everyone else.
