Talk to some Microsoft SharePoint users and you're liable to get mixed reviews. Regardless of customer satisfaction, the collaboration software remains widely deployed in enterprises. That can present a mobility challenge: Microsoft and Apple products don't often play like fast friends, and it's not like Redmond has raced to market with a Windows tablet that, presumably, would offer native SharePoint support. So what's an iPad user to do? Check out Filamente from Aircreek. The $12.99 native iOS app extends SharePoint functionality to the iPad with document and image uploading, multi-site management, and offline access when Wi-Fi or 3G is unavailable. The app supports HTTPS access for the 2007, 2010, and Online editions of SharePoint. You can view (but not edit) Office documents, as well as PDFs and most common image and media files. Filamente also enables discussion groups, workflow processes, and other features.
