Best iPad clients for SharePoint 2010

SharePlus, your SharePoint data in your hands.

Collaborate with your team, sharing documents, calendars and tasks lists right from the meeting room, a taxi, or when out visiting a client. Browse documents, discussions, announcements, InfoPath forms, reports, wiki pages, custom lists and external list.

SharePlus will work with your current SharePoint credentials, so you won’t have to ask for special permissions to use it. SharePlus doesn’t also require any server side components.

SharePlus is available at three plans: Lite, Pro and Enterprise.

The SharePlus Lite Sharepoint Mobile Solution provides read-only access to SharePoint sites. It enables site, subsite, list, and list item navigation. Supports server side view definitions, and content types. Send documents to third party applications.
Connect to SharePoint
Connect to Microsoft SharePoint server 2010 using any of the following authentication methods: Windows Based, Forms Based. HTTPS SSL and client certificates are supported as well, as Microsoft ISA Server, and Microsoft Forefront Authentication.
Read documents
 Open office documents and PDF files, in an easy to use, scrollable view to read them. Send them to third party apps with the Open In file sharing feature, to edit them. Bear in mind that to save them back to a SharePoint list you will need to upgrade to SharePlus Pro.
Navigate Sites & Lists
 Navigate the structure of sites, subsites, lists, and lists items of a SharePoint server with the user experience of a native app. Browse list items metadata and search within lists.
Sort & Group Items
 Customize the way your data is displayed either by using the server side List View definitions, or by sorting and grouping them in SharePlus, with an easy to use, drag n drop user interface.

SharePlus Pro
Everything the Lite version does, plus read/write support allowing you to add and modify list items, receive documents from third party apps and update them to SharePoint lists. Automatically synchronize entire lists and folders for offline viewing and editing. Enhanced security with app level passcode lock support, and encryption of all cached data with data protection.
Content Management
 Add, edit, and remove list items such as Calendar, Tasks, Pictures, Contacts, Discussion Boards, Blogs, Custom and External Lists.
Automatic Synchronization & Offline support
 Turn on offline support for entire lists, enabling a silent process which automatically stores locally all the lists data, enabling offline access, and even edit support, allowing you to take your SharePoint assets with you no matter what the connectivity is like, ensuring fast access to your data when you most need it.
Security
 Enable passcode lock at the application level providing an additional level of security to your data, which could make the difference in case of theft or loss of your device. Additionally all the data stored locally is encrypted using Apple’s Data Protection guidelines.
Local Files Management
Manage your local files, renaming, removing and grouping contents in folders, zipping and unzipping files.
Document Management
 Edit documents in third party apps, such as Documents To Go, and save them back to SharePlus to update them in SharePoint’s document libraries. Leverage SharePoint’s Check In/Check Out support, as well as Document Approve/Reject features when collaborating on the creation of documents with team members.
Media Recording
 Capture audio and video records with your iPhone or iPad2 and upload them straight to your SharePoint list of choice, allowing powerful multimedia data entry scenarios.
Wifi Sharing
Enable team members to access your device’s data by sharing your SharePlus’s Local Files folder with a web access, making them available to anyone in the network with a web browser.

SharePlus Enterprise
While the Pro version is targeted to the individual, SharePlus Enterprise is meant for in house deployment across companies. It includes rebranding, configuration broadcast to manage uniform connection access settings across workgroups, plus custom on demand features to accommodate the needs and requirements of small to large organizations.
Custom features
 If there’s an additional feature you need to make the most of SharePlus in your organization, SharePlus Enterprise is the right context to request it.
Rebranding
Have your brand, icon and aesthetics displayed in your Enterprise version of SharePlus, this is specially valuable in customer facing scenarios of usage, such as mobile workforces.
Additional Security
 Multi factor authentication and remote swipe are some of the security features usually implemented in the context of SharePlus Enterprise engagements.
Premium support
In a nutshell when one of our Enterprise customers raises an issue, we drop everything to respond to it.
In House Deployment
 Implement your own Enterprise App Store, deciding what get’s approved and what not, releasing updates when you need them, leveraging your mobile workforce. SharePlus Enterprise licenses are distributed in house relying on mobile device managers platforms, such as AirWatch, MobileIron, Sybase Afaria.
Configuration broadcast
Execs rarely like to configure app settings such as SharePoint connections configurations, and offline support. That’s why we provide the ability to have this done once by the IT team, and then pushed to the corresponding devices.
Feature Trimming
Some of SharePlus Pro features may not get along with corporate policies, such as emailing documents from within the app. SharePlus Enterprise allows for feature trimming.
