Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

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

The other day I decided to try out the new Notes 8.5.1 client (which has many nice features commented on elsewhere in the blogosphere). In particular, I thought I would try running an xpage application in the client. This was incredibly easy to do, because it was like creating and running any other Notes app. I simply did Ctrl-N to make a new app, choose the Discussion template and off I go.

The only thing I had to do to make it work in the Notes client is to set the Launch property to open an xpage instead of the default "frameset", which opens the old green discussion UI.

In the end, it looks like this:

Pretty cool! How do you like this model of essentially running a web app inside of Notes? Can you work with it?
