    SharePoint 2013, Office Web Apps..... and iPads

    Just toying around with an idea.

    Our staff have iPads and currently use software on the iPads for documents but always want to use Word and Excel and currently they have to use citrix to remote in to a virtual desktop.

    Now Office Web Apps works brilliantly on an iPad however while playing around and testing I have created a Document library with everyone having permission to contribute so that when they click Add Document they get a choice of Word, Excel, PowerPoint. This essentially gives Office on the iPad which is great. However people can only save to the document library and no where else.

    I am toying with the idea of using a workflow which will move any new items in to the home directory field of the current user when a new item is submitted but haven't actually looked in to that yet.

    So just thinking out loud if anyone has an idea to throw in or other suggestions.

    Hi, we're considering the same thing ourselves but haven't made as much progress as yourself. We use SharePoint for document collobration already and have departmental document libraries, was consideirng using My Sites for individual users which will give them their own private document library
