RELEASE: SharePoint Mobile for Windows Phone 7.5/8


SharePoint Mobile app for Windows Phone 7.5/8 is now available for free off the Windows Phone App Store.

SharePoint Mobile for Windows Phone makes it easy to stay connected with your colleagues using SharePoint’s social features. You can post to newsfeeds on all your SharePoint sites, follow people, documents, and tags, and lots more.

I’ve had the fortune of using this in beta for a while now and it’s definitely great for folks setting up microblogging in their environment and want direct access to feeds within their SharePoint environment from their Windows Phone.

There are some caveats however.  The SharePoint app was designed to work both online with the new Office 365 and SharePoint 2013 on-premises deployments (which require additional UAG components to make SharePoint data beyond any established firewalls). However, the current Windows Phone 7.5 app does not support NTLM authentication for on-premise deployments.
