Mobile Apps for Business – Even When Free They Still Suck

There is a post on Business Insider that takes a look at thirteen enterprise mobile apps that are free, but still terrible.  The list of apps include Outlook, Oracle, HP, SAP, and Dell – some of the top technology companies in the world.

According to Business Insider:

“Everyone’s jumping on the mobile app development bandwagon, and that includes enterprise tech vendors.  The problem is, some of the apps they’ve released, despite being free, have been so glitch-ridden and poorly designed that they’ve actually done more harm than help.

“It’s clear that some vendors are just putting apps out there to show how mobile-savvy they are. They’re probably thinking, Hey, people can’t complain because they’re free, right?”

I’d like to point out that, while the SAP mobile app is listed as free, it really isn’t. You need a subscription to the CRM app itself – which is far from free. For free, you get either a demo application, or you set up your connection via non-end user friendly terms like Server Domain and Farm ID.Enterprise mobile apps for business people is a big deal for us – previously I had talked about how bad the state of mobile business apps are, which John had elaborated on as well.

So, again, where are the apps for sales people?
