Yesterday, I came across a post by Ben Tedder: http://www.bentedder.com/freebie-sharepoint-document-navigator-1-0-built-wjquery-mobile-and-spservices/ outlining a solution that he has developed and made available on Codeplex.
The solution is currently free and is built using:
- jQuery Mobile
- OOTB SharePoint 2010 features
This solution can be used to present the content of a Document Library on a mobile device.
The solution can be downloaded from Codeplex here: http://spdocumentnavigator.codeplex.com/
Installation is straightforward after downloading the solution. Create a new document library called “Mobile” and copy the contents of the zip file into the new library:
I have a number of test documents within the Shared Documents library:
On the mobile device, navigate to the “documents.aspx” page within the Mobile library that you copied the solution files to. You are then presented with a great mobile view of the document library contents. This view also includes a feature to search and refine the contents of the library:
Tapping on one of the items, you are taken to the properties of the item and can tap to download the content:
This work looks very promising and I look forward to seeing it being extended by Ben and others.Back to top
