Microsoft have made it abundantly clear that the public cloud based Yammer application is their recommended social tool for use with SharePoint and their other cloud based services. They’ve also made it clear that the social features present in SharePoint 2013 won’t be developed further.
Imagine my surprise then, when I saw that the SharePoint Newsfeed app I have installed on my iPad received an update earlier this month. For anyone who hasn’t used it, this app connects to a user’s SharePoint Newsfeed and presents it’s content in a fairly compelling format.
The update note states, “This release is focused on improving stability and fixing bugs.”
No new features it seems but it’s nice to see it’s being given some love.
