iPhone and iPad support for SharePoint and Office 365

Whenever we teach end user SharePoint classes, one of the questions that always seems to pop-up is: can I use my iPad to access SharePoint? Or: can I use my iPhone to access SharePoint? Our response is that it’s usually best to try out some 3rd party solutions for this, and we’ve found that harmon.ie has an excellent solution for iPhone and iPad support for SharePoint and Office 365.

You can find more information about this here: http://harmon.ie/Products/Mobile/iOS, but the product gives you some great features, such as:
– SharePoint document management tasks such as check-in/check-out and managing metadata
– Update document content
– Uploading content from a mobile device
– Making it easy to Send links to SharePoint content
– Simplified navigation in the form of favorites, breadcrumbs and recently visited locations.

Making SharePoint access from a mobile device a smooth and pleasant experience is already enough in our book. But we feel that one of its killer features is the ability to save email attachments directly to SharePoint. A feature which is requested frequently by our customers as well as in the various SharePoint forums.

We said one of its killer features. This implies there needs to be at least another killer feature. There is, and it’s Offline support!

We also checked out the pricing. It turns out there are various editions:
– harmon.ie Lite for free, which is a read-only version of the product
– harmon.ie Premium which can be purchased from iTunes, currently its pricing is nearly $20.
– harmon.ie Enterprise, you’ll get a custom made offer for your company, but you can get an indication over here http://harmon.ie/Pricing

For additional information, do check out http://harmon.ie/Support/FAQ/Mobile.

We guess there’s nothing left to say that this product put a smile on our faces, and if you’re looking for this type of solution,  harmon.ie may very well provide the answer.
