Flowr, an enterprise-oriented social communication web application that I wrote about last year, has simplified its interface and added some new features, including a beta of an HTML5-based mobile version. The app also has a new pricing structure.

I’ve taken a look at the new features, and like what I saw. The new interface will feel familiar to Twitter and Facebook users; it’s well laid out and easy to navigate. The UI is now available in several languages.

The HTML5 mobile site, which joins the existing Android and iPhone apps , is also well designed, attractive and easy to move around in, although I saw some navigation bugs: When moving between screens, sometimes the program would revert to the standard HTML site rather than going to the appropriate location on the mobile site. These sorts of issues should be easy for the developers to fix, though.

Flowr’s new features, together with such tools as a bookmarklet for sharing, email integration, desktop notifications, and an API for developers, gives it robust abilities that will be welcomed in many collaborative teams.

Flowr has changed its pricing structure. It still offers a free plan, which includes up to five users and 100MB of storage. The paid premium plan starts at $59 per month, which includes 15 users, 1GB of storage per user, and some advanced features. Additional users are available at $3 per user per month.

Sign-up for either plan is available at the developer’s website, or in the Google Apps Marketplace.
