The SharePoint 2013 Social Newsfeed is now available in Apple’s App Store. That’s right– you can access the social side of your SharePoint intranet on an iPad in a slick, easy-to-use way. (Please excuse my low-resolution screen shots– there’s much better examples on the official iTunes page.)
From a UI perspective, there is a lot to like here. It’s basically the Windows 8 / Windows Phone “Metro” look ported to iOS. This doesn’t look like other social apps we’ve seen– it looks like SharePoint. That’s a win.
Far more important to many of us, though, is this: Logging in is free of the obnoxious multiple prompts that you’re regretfully used to if you’ve ever tried hitting secure SharePoint sites through an iOS Safari browser. With the app, you sign in once when you boot up the app for the first time… and that’s it.
All this, and it’s free. Thanks, Microsoft. This will work out really well until I get my Surface Pro.
(Special thanks to my colleague Eric Luke for the tip– shared on our SP 2013 newsfeed, no less!)
