Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

Thoughts on mobile and social business applications, design, and user experience, by Chris Reckling.

November 5. Today IBM released updates to the Connections app for Apple iOS and Google Android. This update primarily adds support for Connections Content Manager, an alternate file database available in communities. The other features worth noting are an indicator for when the device loses the network connection and support for Mobile Iron on iOS.

In these examples, the Connections Content Manager (CCM) is being used inside a community on the Greenhouse. It adds features to your file sharing such as drafts and approvals. In other aspects, we wanted the files in a library to act just like Connections files do for sharing, liking, previewing, and commenting. The library I am using is called "Contracts" and is part of our sales community.

Try it on Greenhouse and would love to hear if you are using this inside your company, too!
