Microsoft Lync 2010 for the iPhone and iPad Released

February 23, 2012 Update:

A significant update was made to the Android client. The big news is that the Android client now supports call via work. Ken Lasko has an excellent write-up on this update at:  http://ucken.blogspot.com/2012/02/lync-mobile-for-android-updated.html.

The long awaited official Microsoft Lync 2010 clients for the iPhone and iPad were released on the Apple App Store this morning:

  1. iPhone: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/microsoft-lync-2010-for-iphone/id484293461?mt=8
  2. iPad: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/microsoft-lync-2010-for-ipad/id484222449?mt=8

A good tip from Tommy Clarke is to watch for Lync iOS clients connected through a corporate WiFi that do not have the root Certificate Authority installed: http://www.ultimate-communications.com/2011/12/lync-for-ios-and-certificates/.

This completes the Lync client releases for all major smartphone platforms. Earlier this month the Android and Windows 7 Phone clients were made available:

  1. Android: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.microsoft.office.lync
  2. Windows Phone 7: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/apps/9ce93e51-5b35-e011-854c-00237de2db9e

See the prior Lync 2010 Mobility Service and Documentation Available blog post for information on deploying the server-side pieces to allow the mobile clients to function.

Microsoft TechNet has a good table showing all the supported feature sets on the various mobile clients: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh691004.aspx.
