IBM Domino Mobile Apps (IDMA) for iPad

IBM Domino Mobile Apps (IDMA) is access to Notes applications from Apple iPad without the need for re-design Notes applications.

The access to the application is only for registered beta testers for now.

I was lucky because I was included in the IDMA beta program.

I received an email with a link to the application in the “TestFlight app”, which was automatically installed on the iPad. Through iTunes I needed to copy my ID file from the Notes client to the application.

When I open IDMA, I enter the password for my ID file as for the Notes client. Then I can open an application from my server or from local iPad (local) .

Opened apps will show “Recent applications” as Home by default.. The last 12 are displayed.

However, I can open my Workspace. Open / On My Device / Bookmark.nsf

For now, Workspace options are limited, but you can, for example, change the background, arrange icons, and so on.

Most of us appreciate the ability to replicate applications. This means I can run offline applications just like I am used to from your Notes clients.

Just set the application to be offline. You will see the replication setting screen and you can start replicating.

Replication can be found in the replication server as in the Notes client.

The application is in beta. So far with limited functionality.
The iPad does not support Java (JavaAgents and xPages that you used in your applications).

IBM Domino Mobile Apps also supports older versions of servers.
I tested Domino 9.0.1 FP9.

I think this is a good thing from HCL and I look forward to the next version. A lot of users will certainly welcome this access to Notes applications.
