“Just tired of getting excited about what MS is releasing only to find that they continue to prioritize the competition over their very own handsets. I was told at the Microsoft store that my new 950XL would provide the "best Microsoft experience". It is starting to seem like I was lied to.
At least give timelines for propagation to a UWP app that my team (who all uses W10M) can utilize for our needs. The opportunity to take a leadership position here was lost hopefully a lesson learned for the next projects that release first on your equipment and not that of your competition.”
“Does this mean that Windows Mobile will finally get an app like your competition?”
“Hi Yammer Team,
Any updates here? You seem to be ignoring your users, why does anyone want this app if there is no support or concern about the people who are using it and responding to you?
Also, questions about this were also ignored and unanswered in the support forum, is anyone there ?!?:
“What happens if we are using Windows Mobile? The app doesn't really seem to be working well under Windows on my 950XL and is still listed as a Windows 8.1 app. What's going on? I can't send snaps or markup files like my colleagues.
I was told at the Microsoft store that this was the premier platform for MS, why in the world is it not mentioned at all in this blog post and why are you featuring phones that your competitors make?
What's the plan to support *your* users using *your* handsets?”
“The website states "Works with the device you own..."
I own a 950XL with Windows Mobile and need this type of productivity application....
How about "works with the device we make???"
Why is Microsoft not supporting their users as a top priority??”
“Agreed, can we get a response? Why in the world would we see development kits for everything but your very own handsets that people purchased to get the best Microsoft experience??
Please update, is the dev kit for Windows mobile already available? Is this handled under UWP? You should empower developers first for windows mobile, otherwise we won't see new apps being developed since the underlying support isn't there. Google and Apple do a great job supporting these transports on their devices, MS should concentrate on theirs as well.”
“Once again, why do we see apps and features launched for Android and iOS (the competition) first rather than Microsoft's own windows mobile devices, this makes no sense at all! The recent updates to the Office suite for iOS already allow direct access to SharePoint files which we still cannot access from WM10. I purchased the latest Windows Mobile devices to get the best Microsoft experience, but I continue to see feature sets inexplicably developed for other devices first. Something is wrong with prioritization here, please explain.”
“Windows 10 Mobile? I use Skype daily and the lack of:
group calling, outlook integration, voicemail, bots, integrated video messages, updated design language, office file handling, and many other usability features that keep pouring out to the handsets made by your direct competition is getting unbelievable.
Please provides updates first for people on YOUR platform, doesn't make sense to give such rich feature sets to phones that you don't make.”
“Is there an update here? As loyal Windows mobile users, we are more often than not having to beg for translation of features that are being provided to rival platforms. So, while Andriod and apple users can use their watches for content management on SP servers, we still cannot see anything. Sorry to rant here, but please support your own platform and use it to innovate as a market leader should. Our whole group invested in Windows mobile and we are stuck without reasonable access to SharePoint as the Microsoft experience is much better on other handsets for reasons that aren't obvious....”
Thank you for addressing this question, I updated the DropBox app and the picker is working as you mentioned.
However, the issue with SharePoint is still unresolved and the workaround doesn't seem practical. I can't always open a file somewhere else just so that it will show up on my recent files list. I would like to add the SharePoint link like the above screenshot that you say is iOS. Why do you offer opening unreferenced files in iOS and not for Windows phone? What is the plan going forward to resolve this so that we can open files directly on WM10 ?”
