MS Lists App now available for iPhone users

Microsoft has released the Lists app for iOS iPhone owners.  The app allows users to create and share lists, keep track of team events & projects, and track issues.

Microsoft trailed the Lists app at its Build 2020 conference in May.  Since then it has rolled out the List app for Microsoft Teams and the web version for Microsoft 365 (Desktop) customers across the world.  Now the Lists app is available from the Apple App Store.

You can use the Lists app instead of a spreadsheet or physical clipboard for things like managing students’ progress or keeping track of visitors.  It is designed to work with Microsoft 365 apps, including Excel, SharePoint, Power Apps, Power Automate and Power BI. Lists is an updated take on Sharepoint lists, which can consist of people, links, pictures, dates, and more.

The iOS app should help users manage and create lists while on the move.

Microsoft says users can track and manage lists, see recent and favourite lists, view lists offline, edit lists, add pics with QR codes, share track lists, view ready-made templates, and customize views using sort, filter and group.

Additionally, the app has dark mode support and can be used in landscape mode.  There’s also Intune device management support with mobile device management (MDM) and mobile app management (MAM) policies for use in enterprise environments.

And that’s the catch!  This is an enterprise app and organizations need an Office 365 commercial subscription that includes SharePoint to use it.

Microsoft is planning on delivering improvements designed for Lists usage on the iPad soon. It’s also working on a Lists app for Android phones but there is no firm indication when that will be available.
