Greetings SharePoint Online users!

This time I will shed some light on what Microsoft have made available for the Iphone users out there. I’m usng different phones over time, but I have an Iphone and I discovered that there is actually quite a lot you can do from and on the Iphone that is SharePoint Online related (Only focusing on the supported Microsoft realesed here)
In this post I will try to list them all and write a bit about what you can do with them.

This is the list of SharePoint Online related apps available (2014-03-23)

OneDrive  Office  Newsfeed  OneNote  Admin  OWA  RMS

1. OneDrive for Business (Formarly SkyDrive Pro)
2. Office Mobile for Office 365 Subscribers
3. SharePoint Newsfeed
4. Microsoft OneNote for Iphone
5. Office 365 Admin
6. OWA for Iphone
7. Microsoft Rights Management Sharing

Lets start to show what you can see in the App store where they are all available as free downloads, first one out is OneDrive for Business. This is not a Deep dive into technology or functionality or detailed feature sets, but rather a listing of what is available, see what can be done in the gui, the next step is your own, download the apps and try them out for yourselves.

Good luck!


1. OneDrive for Business (Formarly known as SkyDrive Pro)

OneDrive1

OneDrive15  OneDrive4  OneDrive2  OneDrive3

This is as good as they get, you can easily access your personal and shared files at any time (Located in your MySite or other organizational sites within the Office 365 tenant). OneDrive for Business will keep your OneDrive files in synch at all times and available online or offline.
OneDrive for Business or SkyDrive Pro as it was originally called, is the shit, no doubt about it.


2. Office Mobile for Office 365 Subscribers

Office for 365 1

Office for 365 2  Office for 365 3  Office for 365 4  Office for 365 5  Office for 365 6

These are the classical Office application, do some final Changes or touch ups, create the files you need while on the road without any Computer. This is a complete ‘mini Office’ compatible with Office 365.


3. SharePoint Newsfeed

SHarePoint Newsfeed 1

SHarePoint Newsfeed 2  SHarePoint Newsfeed 3  SHarePoint Newsfeed 4  SHarePoint Newsfeed 5  SHarePoint Newsfeed 6

SharePoint Newsfeed, follow what is happening in your organizations social and Corporate newsfeeds. This app will make sure that you are up to date at all times.


4. Microsoft OneNote for Iphone

OneNote 1

OneNote 6  OneNote 2  OneNote 3  OneNote 4  OneNote 5

OneNote…if you don’t use it today, start using it! It is a really really good companion in your daily work, not sure if the App can replace the real application, but you can read and edit your OneNote files in your phone, how cool is that?


5. Office 365 Admin

365 Admin

365 Admin4  365 Admin5  365 Admin6  365 Admin2  365 Admin3

For the Office 365 Administrator, or for the partners out there monitoring the Office 365 tenants for customers, this is the best app of them all(except for OneDrive for Business obviously). In the Admin ‘hub’ you can get the status of all the services in your Office 365 tenant. You see all the major services status on the start page, then you can drill down to what is failing, which Component has the issue, and you can read the log from the Microsoft maintenance staff, what they are doing to solve the issue. This is great. If onluy you could add users and reset their passwords as well…but you can’t get Everything. A good monitor/dashboard from Microsoft this anyway.


6. OWA for Iphone

OWA for Iphone

OWA for Iphone6  OWA for Iphone2  OWA for Iphone3  OWA for Iphone4  OWA for Iphone5

Well, no need to explain, this is the OWA (Outlook Web App, not Office Web Apps) experience in your Iphone. You get email, calendar and Contacts in your hand. In a familiar format.


7. Microsoft Rights Management Sharing

RMS

RMS2  RMS3  RMS4  RMS5

Microsoft Rights Management Sharing. Well…this is what it says, use the App to set IRM protection on files and to open IRM protected files. IRM protected files, and you can access them on your Iphone, who would have thought…?

Ok, thats it. These are the Apps on the Iphone that are related in one or many ways to SharePoint Online, or at least to Office 365. They are all written by Microsoft Corporation and they are free to download from the App store.

See Appstore in your Iphone, search for Microsoft Corporation and you will find them all.
