The Igloo Mobile app

The Igloo Mobile app is designed to keep users connected to the pulse of their digital workplace. After downloading the app for their iOS or Android mobile device, users must sign in with the same credentials as the normal web experience of their digital workplace to access the mobile experience of their workplace (SSO, Igloo, and LDAP are all supported authentication methods). Users will receive an onscreen tutorial explaining the important components of the app after installing it and signing in. 

To stay up to date with and find the content, processes, and information that they need for their work, users can navigate between the available tabs (Feed, Notifications, Web, Favorites, and People) by tapping them. To quickly find content or people users can search the entire workplace. Users can then interact with content by commenting, liking, following, and sharing, or starting a conversation by posting to any microblog channels in the workplace that they have access to.
