HCL Connections (formally 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. HCL Connections is a server product that is deployed on your company intranet or the IBM Connections Cloud. This HCL 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.
Even the Lynda app supports authentication via SSO with our company servers. Our policy requires connecting via VPN but, if I can do VPN in and connect to this service using the very simple mobile Safari browser, there’s really no reason I shouldn’t be able to use this app (and it’s probably using HTML anyhow).
I can’t believe that the mobile app is asking for password when my email is configured for SSO in web version.
