  • SharePoint mobile apps – please correct your statement

    Please correct your statement about “no native mobile apps” for SharePoint. SharePoint access is integrated in Windows Phone, there is no need for a separate app, also each sharepoint site can be accessed from a mnodern smartphone.

    On other mobile platforms access to sharepint files is available by using SkyDrive or SkyDrive Pro, which are available for all major mobile platforms. There is also a variety of other apps which integrate with SharePoint such as OneNote and other.
    • Correct..

      Skydrive(hosted through SP) is very accessible for iOS devices(can't speak for Android). Also browser support is surprisingly good. Problems start to kick in though when the security guys start to ratchet up the security. Since mobile devices are not part of the domain there isn't pass through authentication. You will get prompted a lot for logins and passwords. But again, other then that pretty darn good!
  • please correct your statement and image

    SharePoint does have a native newsfeed app in the Windows store.

    So you can update your image and correct the statements.
  • 2nd Tier of Options - Interact Intranet

    Hi Dion..

    As you mentioned there are many other venders specialising in these areas.

    Please have a look at Interact ( when compiling your 2nd tier of options.

    It's comprehensive intranet software combining both social and productivity tools in one place having a direct impact on workforce collaboration. Users should not have to shift between platforms for collaboration and business process tools with no connectivity between each system. This just ends up with more silos.

    Interact is available both in the cloud and on-premise, and build with responsive design at its core, offers a comprehensive and powerful platform for sharing knowledge and aiding internal communications.

    Thanks - Scott
  • Try Unison (

    We provide secure, realtime "rooms" where teams can talk to each other, post files, get feedback etc.

    Growing very quickly -- a more private approach than ESNs, and (IMO) more useful. People want to talk in groups in most cases, not a company-wide stream, and the "groups" built in to ESNs like Yammer/Jive are a clunky, bolt-on afterthought.
  • MangoApps

    Hi Dion, suggest you also have a look at MangoApps native Smartphone & tablet Apps..
    Refer for the release notes...

    You would like to have a look at Projects, Tasks, Wiki's Ideas, CRM Integration, etc over & above microblogging & document collaboration.

    Look forward to reading your thoughts on the App :)
  • 2nd Tier Option -- River from Triple Creek


    Check out River from Triple Creek ( River is social learning software that supports peer learning, coaching and mentoring. The great thing about River is that there is actual learning structure embedded in the system in the form of competencies, learning goals, and skills identification. It supports enterprise-wide knowledge sharing and collaboration, but with a more intentional focus than just social networking or document sharing. People form their own learning engagements, use the system to find experts, connect with one another (often in groups), and share knowledge that will help build skills and competencies. It is a unique approach to the growing need for skill building, collaboration and knowledge sharing.

  • Looks interesting but

    @Dion Hinchcliffe

    The "article" looks interesting but I refuse to read any more gallery style articles. They're a waste of my time.

    Check out, an enterprise document management / sharing and collaboration tool. Storage agnostic and has some excellent security and team hub features.

    [Disclaimer: I'm a friend of the owner, but I use the software and can't say enough good things about it]
