iPad Sharepoint Client Applications

by Ozgur Akman on January 25, 2011

ipadLaptops and notebook computers have been around for a while, but it is only really since the release of smartphones, tablet computers, and more specifically the iPad that things have really taken off in the world of mobile business. Launched to a waiting list of eager Apple devotees, the iPad has shown its strength in both entertainment and business purposes, and now with the launch of Sharepoint 2010, the iPad is once again showing that it can be used for almost any purpose.

Within the iPad’s native web browser Safari, users can load Sharepoint 2010 straight from the page, and the site displays in a fully optimized view. The site can be personalized by the iPad user to suit their needs, which is one brilliant feature considering that most iPad business users are rather hot about making sure everything is tailored to their work. This works well for most users, but for some, the need for a Sharepoint app and a more intuitive interface is needed. The iPad has a larger screen, meaning that it can utilize more options within one view, making the Safari access a little weak for the challenge.

The Shareplus app is fully designed to work best for touchscreens such as the iPad. With feature rich content management and the ability to create, change and delete calendar items, documents, tasks and more, the app makes the most of touchscreen working, and has many one-click options within it.

Mobile computing on the iPad allows individuals to access their Sharepoint data from anywhere, on a large mobile screen, without the hassle of carrying a cumbersome laptop. Even in the most cramped of travel situations, the touchscreen device can be used to access client and collaborator files to make sure that the current document, client quote or email is going to contain accurate and current information. The Sharepluss app also recently supported multitasking, meaning that the app can be run in the background while the individual works on other things. The app is also universal, meaning that one purchase will cover all the iOS devices owned by the individual. This is great for those who also have a smartphone and Macbook, as it means that one payment will ensure that the individual is never without access to vital data. There is no denying that the iPad and various Sharepoint apps such as SharePlus have revolutionized the way that business is handled, for the better.

Before the iPad I never even knew SharePoint could be personalized. I’m sure most businesspeople love it.

The iPad really is the perfect size and weight; light enough for business travel, big enough to enjoy entertainment.

I never realized how much difference a program specifically designed for a touchscreen rather than a keyboard could make until the Shareplus app came along.
