Let’s get started

• The App market has exploded
• Reviews and Killer Features
SharePoint “M” Out of Box…
Disadvantages
• Can’t use edit menus, or most other
features.
• Browse only
• Not user friendly
• You must be connected
The “real site” on iPad
Disadvantages
• Can use some edit menus but
performance is unreliable.
• Get stuck at the “open/edit”
• Again, you must be connected
Enter the apps…
• Over 50 results in the Apps store if you
conduct a “SharePoint” search
• Variety of offerings, pricing, capabilities
• Which are the best?

Evaluated on 1 key scenario:
• Can I
1. Log in to a SharePoint site
2. Browse to a file I want
3. Check it out
4. Edit it (*using QuickOffice Pro, sold separately)
5. Check it back in
- Without reading any documentation
Colligo
• Biggest strength is synching offline
content
• Usability is not as good as it could be
• No check-in check-out feature

Colligo – Final Review
• Best for “read-only” offline synching
• Checking the file in and out was not
integrated well into the experience and
caused some usability issues
• Because of the synch settings, I was
editing an older version of the doc.
Filamente – Quick Review
• Similar to Colligo
• Could check the file out but could not
determine how to check back in.
Caused some usability issues
• Does have integration with Dropbox
SharePlus (Infragistics)
• Integration points with SP editing
features are solid
• Synch settings a bit more intuitive
• Good support for questions!

SharePlus – Final Review
• Only product where I could seamlessly
conduct my use case scenario
• WINNER!
• Required no reading or instructions
• Assistance was good when I had
product questions
Harmon.ie Review
• Great UI except for “properties”
• Does have check-in check-out built into
the product but I experienced an error
• Does NOT have offline synch
• Does have social feeds
Harmon.ie

Updates
In Summary…
• Best All-around: SharePlus
• Best UI and Social capabilities:
Harmon.ie, but no offline synch
• Colligo and Filamente’s user
experiences caused some problems
