iOS users re-joice! Snapps has just published an update to their SnappFiles application in the iTunes App Store. SnappFiles for Quickr is a business app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch that allows you to access your Quickr places and files directly from your iPhone, iPod Touch and/or iPad. No modifications to your server are required at all; just point to the server, log in, and start browsing. The app is tremendously popular with reports that is being used by an elected President of a country.
The latest update published is version 1.0.5 which includes the following new features:
- Support for IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5.1 for both Domino and Portal
- Support for IBM Content Manager 8 (CM8) with Content Manager Services for Lotus Quickr installed
- Support for IBM FileNet P8 with FileNet Services for Lotus Quickr installed
- Support for IBM Social ECM Bundle
- Downloaded files can be opened in other registered apps, whether viewable by the native device viewer or not (iOS 3.2 and higher) — for instance, a non-viewable zip file may be opened in the Dropbox app, or a viewable PDF stored in iBooks
- Runs as a background app (iOS 4.0 and higher)
- Experimental support for Alfresco Open Source ECM, Documentum, and OpenText with third party integration for Lotus Quickr installed
I've been using the app now for a couple of weeks and like it a lot. It allows me to use Quickr as Dropbox for the Enterprise. I can easily browse and navigate my files. I find it really useful when I go to customer sites, pull down a presentation stored in Quickr and present directly from my iPad.
And speaking of Dropbox, the new version allows you to save downloaded files into Dropbox. In fact, this new version allows you to open downloaded files with any app that supports the "Open in..." dialog box in your iOS device, for example, iBooks for viewing PDFs (as seen below).
I believe access to your mobile documents on the go is key to driving adoption and accelerating your process in becoming a social business. Therefore, this app is must-have! To download it, you can get it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/snappfiles/id352215859?mt=8
If you've never seen SnappFiles in action, take a peek at the demo movie here (which doesn't show the new features yet):
