Grab the latest version of GimmalPoint for free with exclusive WPCentral promotion

GimmalPoint (www.gimmalpoint.com) for Windows 8 and Windows Phone enables consumers to connect to SharePoint and view documents, sites, lists, libraries and more in multiple views. It’s billed as the most featured-rich solution available on Microsoft’s app stores and is developed by Liquid Daffodil.

We've covered these apps in the past, passing through beta testing and going gold. Today, we’re looking at a significant update. But not only do we have a new release, but there is a special offer exclusively available for Windows Phone Central readers.

Without further ado, here’s the full list of changes in the latest versions of GimmalPoint:

  • Yammer integration, which includes reading and updating timelines for all networks, as well as sharing documents, lists and more from the apps
  • Offline storage and management for Windows Store, perfect for when connectivity is sketchy
  • Enhanced ADFS/Federation support
  • Connections now synchronise across all devices and platforms (including auto-sensing credential entry)

GimmalPoint Promotion

As touched on above, not only has Liquid Daffodil pushed through the above features, but Gimmal is also running a special promotion for the Windows Phone Central community. What this promotion will bag you is not only both apps for free, but also the optional in-app purchase for management/editing functionality.

This special deal will save you around $13 in total, should you download both the Windows and Windows Phone apps. That's not a bad deal. So, how does one take advantage of this promotion?

GimmalPoint

It’s super simple to grab both apps for free. Download the GimmalPoint trials from the app stores (which expires in 15 days) and enter the promotion code WPCENTRAL (see above for a screenshot). That’s it! You now have GimmalPoint along with future versions and updates.

You can download GimmalPoint from the Windows Phone and Windows (opens in new tab) stores. Let us know how you get on with the promotion code.

  • Only useful if you have SharePoint server to log into. Else can't put code.

  • +1, thought i would download for the future, but cannot add the code without a server
  • Excellent! And i'm really impressed with how wpcentral is fostering relationships with devs. That is good all round! Good job!

  • Anyone have test/lab server I could log into for 5 seconds so I can input the code. Really don't won't to build a vm :(
  • +1  
  • Downloaded the trial for WP8. I am assuming one has to wait until the trial expired to enter the code? Haven't found an option in the app itself...
  • You gotta connect to a server then you can enter promo
  • Connected to our server, but can't find where to enter the promo code (on a Windows Phone).
  • Connected to my O365 SharePoint works well, but no option to enter the code in my WP8 device. I'll check out the app on my PC later. Maybe the option is there and then just syncs with the phone app. I will let you guys know.
  • same on the desktop
  • Im with you on that. I have a work server which I can access from work WiFI only. But if anyone can provide test/promo server connection just to activate it quickly - would be useful.  Also kinda strange that Microsoft doesn't provide test server to try Sharepoint product. 
  • You can sign up for a free three month trial of Office365 with SharePoint online.
  • I don't see any option either on the windows phone app or windows 8 app. WPCENTRAL should provide the complete instructions before posting such "exclusives".
  • Thanks for the info.  Downloaded the trial on both Win8 and WP8, connected w/ my server, but don't see any way of using the promotion code WPCENTRAL
  • I guess we have to wait until it expires in 15 days before you can activate.  Hopefully the promo code is still working then. 
  • This would be helpful if my phone had VPN. Come on WP 8.1 update!
  • Has anybody at all figured out how to use this promo? Can't find a box anywhere to enter the code. Also I can't get the thing to work on Win8 or WP8. It connects to my local sharepoint just fine, shows folders and number of items in each, then shows absolutely nothing when you go to any folder, with the progress dots never finishing.
  • The promo code entry will show up when the free trial expires (15 days after you install the trial).   I just entered the promo code and it told me I was running the full version, but document editing does not work. Keeps prompting me to pay for it even after I exit and restart the application. I thought document managment/editing was included with the WPCENTRAL promo code?
