Today’s announcement is one that I am personally very excited about. Let me tell you why.
As millions of others, I absolutely love my Mac, my iPhone and most recently, my iPad. When Jobs first presented the iPad, I was a little skeptical and wondered if I really needed a third device. But after having held it in my hands for a couple of minutes, I had to own it. The iPad has provided many hours of entertainment for my family and me. But when I look back, it has been mostly that, entertainment.
We are all about operating in the cloud here at OneLogin and use well over 40 cloud applications. Unfortunately, most of them don’t have an iPad app and those that do have one, only provide a limited set of functionality. When I’m on the road, the work I do on my iPad is mostly email and calendar.
This all changes now. When I use my iPad, it’s usually because I’m not in a place where it’s impractical to use my notebook, which means that I’m holding the iPad with one hand and typing with the other. This makes it way too slow to enter URLs, usernames and passwords. OneLogin for iPad allows me to sign into any of my cloud applications by just entering a 4-digit PIN and tapping an icon.
Now I routinely sign into Bill.com, Expensify, Google Docs, LeadLander, Marketo, Salesforce and WordPress with no effort whatsoever. It sounds so simple, but it makes a huge difference. My iPad just tripled its value and I can get things done faster when I’m traveling or away from my desk.
Best of all, we’re making OneLogin for iPad free and you can even use it with our free plan, which includes directory integration and single sign-on for up to 3 apps. If you have an iPad and need to do work on the go, try out OneLogin for iPad. I think you will be as excited as I am.
