While it’s the biggest force driving IT change today, mobility has yet to overhaul the things users need to do to get their jobs done: people still primarily work with email, applications, and files.

Files on mobile devices, however, are a different ballgame. Though there are only a few things users really need to do with their files (view, search, annotate, edit, save and share), the options in app stores are manifold. Yet they rarely provide a unified solution.
