Microsoft releases SharePoint app for iOS

Kit McDonald

Finally, Microsoft has released the SharePoint application for iOS. We first heard about the iOS version of SharePoint in May from the Future of SharePoint conference. During which, we saw the integration of SharePoint into OneDrive for iOS platforms. Now users can download the team intranet application for free.

The application’s list of features include:

  • Sign into your SharePoint sites, whether they’re in the cloud or on-premises. The app works with SharePoint Online, and SharePoint Server versions 2013 and 2016. You can add multiple accounts, and easily switch between them.
  • Quickly find your sites. Check out the Sites tab, to see the sites you frequently visit and the sites you follow. Tap on a team site to dive into it. See site activity, navigate using the familiar quick launch navigation, easily follow or share the site, and work with your lists.
  • Check out recent and popular files. In a team site, get to your recent or popular files quickly to view or share them, and have full access to your document libraries using the new integration with the OneDrive app. Edit your files easily using Office Mobile apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.
  • Use the Links tab to find promoted links for your organization. Curated by your SharePoint admin for all employees, these links get you to the organizational resources and sites that you care about.
  • Search. Enterprise Search is available throughout the app and results are organized into sites, files and people.
  • Find and browse for people you work with. Tap on a user to get to their contact card and to see who they work with and what they are working on.

With this being the first release, Microsoft is looking for feedback about the SharePoint experience for iOS, so don’t forget to let them know how you feel.
