IBM® Connections is social software for your business. It enables you to build a network of colleagues and subject matter experts, and then leverage that network to further your business goals. You can discuss ideas, work collaboratively on presentations or proposals, share photos or files, plan and track project tasks, and much more. IBM Connections is a server product that is deployed on your company intranet or the IBM Connections Cloud. This IBM Connections mobile app extends access to that server for employees, like yourself, who are on the go directly from their iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. This app can also be securely managed by your company administrator through server side policies.

Ratings and Reviews

Handy for Cloud Access to many file types


For the most part, I'm enjoying this app for access to both SmartCloud and private Connections servers. It is easy to switch between accounts and navigate most Community and/or File content.

I have one specific bug to report for v4.6.1: audio is not heard when playing .MOV files. In prior versions, launching a .MOV file played both audio and video in sync. Something seems to be recently broken?

In our situation, the .MOV files are the result of IBM SmartCloud Meetings Recordings.

Great work again!


Every update just keeps getting better. I like the ability to have multiple accounts, and have my credentials stored for them so I don't have to log in separately each time. I also like the ability to take forums and files offline (specially having files encrypted in the device). Editing documents on the go is a snap. Kudos to the developers.

Full functioning social business app


Not only can a user take their important files offline, this app keeps you connected to your enterprise and cloud social networks based on IBM's premier social networking platform. Micro blogging, expertise lookups, and other powerful social and Collab tools keep me connected and sharing with my colleagues.
