Microsoft SharePoint for iOS is now available for download on App Store. The app is developed for iPhone and iPad users for now. It is planned to arrive on Android and Windows Universal in a couple of months as well, no later than year end.
SharePoint is used by hundreds of thousands of organization to share news, documents, pages, and more. To meet the needs of businesses, SharePoint has now taken a leap into the mobile word, providing users with SharePoint content anytime and anywhere thanks to the easy-to-carry-around mobile devices.
Microsoft officials claim that you can now take “intranet in your pocket”. Users can stay connected to sites, content, portals, and people from the intranet using their smartphone. The SharePoint app for iOS provides customers with access to team sites, portals, resources, and more.
The new app features a “Sites” tab where users can find frequent SharePoint sites. This gains access to information such as recent activity, files, lists, pages, and other content. The “Links” tab provides a list of sites and portals in the company, while the “People” tab allows browsing through the lists of colleagues and enter their profile. Users can also see what their colleagues have been working on, including who they’ve been working with.
SharePoint search connects users through full company search, allowing them to find content and people across their intranet, team sites, business portals, and more. Customers can also get “content recommendations” that are powered by Microsoft Graph.
Microsoft SharePoint for iOS is now available to work with SharePoint Online in Microsoft Office 365 or SharePoint Server 2013 and SharePoint Server 2016. After downloading and launching the app on the iOS device, users can sign in with their SharePoint credentials and easily switch between accounts if needed.
SharePoint mobile app also works with other Office apps. When clicking an Office document in “Recent files”, for example, the SharePoint app will automatically launch the corresponding Office app.
Microsoft SharePoint for iOS is now available as a public release, but Microsoft is still eager to receive feedback on the new mobile app. Users can weigh in on UserVoice and Twitter. The company is excited about the new release and claims it will continue to add other features to the “on the go” SharePoint app.
