Similar to the way Windows 8 overhauled the traditional desktop OS for the mobile era, SharePoint 2013 acknowledges that many users expect to be able to use their desktop applications on any device, no matter how big or small the screen. Users now can pick from three different mobile browsing options. These include an HTML5-based "contemporary" view, which optimizes for various screen sizes across iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. Unlike prior versions, SharePoint 2013 also enables developers and administrators to deliver customizable, device-specific designs rather than a one-size-fits-all experience. Geolocation and push notification functionality also has been added.

My clients are anxiously awaiting the release of SharePoint 2013 for Office 365. You've captured some of the key points they're interested in - particularly the enhanced mobile experience. Can't wait!

Information Week only had one important New Year's Resolution this year. '"No Slide Show Articles with out a prominent 'View-as-one-page' link." How's that working out for you so far?

re: 8 Key Changes In Microsoft SharePoint 2013
Ugh. I was excited to find this article from a publisher I like, about a subject I'm interested in.
I only made it to the third 'slide' and quit reading. This slide show format is horrible. I want to read an article, not look for what to click next. It's not even formatted reasonable, in that I have to click 'more' every time. I guess I'll go elsewhere to READ an article, not view a slideshow.
I would more welcome a flash intro to the article, if I could read it in one place. Heck, even some blinking text would be tolerable.
