Open source CMS provider Nuxeo has debuted native mobile apps on iOS and Android devices, and developers now have access to tools for building feature specific hybrid apps of their own.

Manage Documents, Build HTML5/Native Hyprid Apps

Nuxeo has a two pronged attack with this release. Allow access to documents and content from mobile devices, and allow developers to build their own HTML5/native hybrid apps. The free app can be downloaded from the Nuxeo website, iTunes or Google Play or GitHub for those who need to build their own integrated apps.

Features of the mobile app include browsing the content repository from a tablet or smartphone, previewing content without downloading and opening documents in Quickoffice or iWork, for example, and edit and save back to the repository.

Additionally, new content like images, image libraries and documents can be uploaded from mobile devices. Teams can collaborate by adding comments, liking and sharing content, and documents can be bookmarked for accessing on a desktop or mobile device.

For developers, there is access to device-specific APIs and Nuxeo Platform APIs for building custom apps and allowing code reuse between desktop and mobile devices.

Nuxeo on the Move

Nuxeo keeps it rolling with this mobile release, and recent figures show its customers are pretty happy with nearly everything the company does these days. In early February, Nuxeo said many of its large US customers had renewed their subscriptions and that overall, the company's renewal rate is 99%, a much higher rate than competitors, according to CEO Eric Barroca.

All of this comes on the heels of the Nuxeo 5.6 launch back in September 2012, a major update that included adaptive workflow and desktop synchronization. Now with the mobile app released, the company has one more weapon with which to convince new customers it has the fullest open source package around.
