Ignite 2016 session about apps, mobile experiences and intelligent portals by Andy Haon (@andyhaon) and Nate Clinton (@nate_clinton).

Here are my notes:

SharePoint Home

I was a little late to the session, so only a screenshot from the slides:

Mobile Apps

Approach: look at the key workloads in regards to SharePoint and bring them to the mobile apps on all platforms.

Things they learned: Sign-in issues (a lot), analysis of top requests and implementing them

Android: feature parity with iOS but with respect to the material design. PowerApps integration comes first to Android

Windows 10 mobile: feature parity with iOS but with windows design. You have to be an Insider to get the app here: https://aka.ms/spappwindows

Team News

Quickly author news with status updates or mention a document. News are available on mobile phones, too. Its planned to add mobile news authoring so you can craft news while on the go.

Intranet in your pocket, the changes that are coming are promising for that:

Notifications, News and list improvements will drive the adoption.

Summary

To be honest, I expected this session to discuss about SharePoint Apps – no, I mean Addins! – and not about the mobile apps. But on the plus side, it was really good session that showed me whats possible in the apps – I am more a browser guy, but I will give it a try!

Good stuff.
