More iPad support for SharePoint: Dashboards, PowerPivot, & Excel!

It’s nice to see Microsoft playing nice with others. The cumulative update 2011-12 (CU Dec 2011, or Feb 2012) includes improvements around the iPad. Specifically, users can now access dashboards, Excel services, and PowerPivot services via their iPad!

For complete details, check out http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh697482.aspx. There’s a great video on that page that walks through how well it works.

Taking my PowerPivot walk through I posted about previously, I accessed it via my iPad and found it worked very well. Check out the screen shots below.
