Official SharePoint app now available for Windows Phone

Microsoft has released an official SharePoint app for Windows Phone, enabling users to stay connected with colleagues using service backend functionality and features. Newsfeeds from SharePoint sites are displayed, which can be added to, with the ability to follow people, access documents, tags and more.

With the built-in Office suite, Windows Phone has the advantage of the competing mobile platforms when it comes to document processing. Microsoft is busy adding more products to the Windows Phone Store, with Lync also readily available.

SharePoint App

Some highlighted Newsfeed features of the SharePoint app:

  • Create new status posts
  • Add comments to ongoing discussions
  • Read and “like” your colleagues’ posts
  • @mention a colleague directly
  • Use #hashtags
  • Upload pictures
  • Discover people profiles
  • Work with followed documents

You can download SharePoint from the Windows Phone Store for free. Note that it's a preview so be sure to leave feedback where possible to improve usability, and reviews already published on the app listing reveal that users are experiencing issues with connectivity. via: Plaffo
