Last night, amidst the buzz in Cupertino about the launch of the iPad, we at SNAPPS quietly got an email notification that the fruits of Julian’s labor for the past few months, SnappFilesTM, is now available for sale on the Apple app store. “Sale” is a bit of a misnomer, since like many of our other “SNAPPS Labs” efforts, the inaugural version of SnappFiles is free. Yep, free. Can’t think of a better price.
So what is SnappFiles? It’s fairly easy to grok. Start it up, point it to a Lotus Quickr server (Domino or J2EE), and browse for your files. If there’s a viewer, open and read them on the device. Or, send a link to the page and file to anyone with one click. That’s it. Pretty easy, huh?
And, it will work straight away on the iPad when it’s released. In fact, I think it will be a killer app for iPad in business – ECM integration – as the format is so good for reading documents.
Enjoy, folks. We’ll issue a press release later today. Movies and more coming over the next couple days. And of course, we’ll be doing more of this with Domino and the iProducts…it’s fun! Go get it, or read more about it here: snappfiles.snapps.com
