There is no doubt that SharePoint 2013's new mobile features are a huge improvement on what was available in previous versions, but don't jump for joy just yet -- the latest features may be better than those that came before but there's still room for improvement. How are the current features falling short? Find out in Wendy Neal's 7 Ways that SharePoint 2013's New Mobile Features Fall Short.
SharePoint 2013's new mobile features are definitely a step up from the mobile features in previous versions. In fact, one could argue that mobile devices get better support than ever before, with better mobile browser support; new features such as device channels, push notifications and location services; and Office Web Apps integration. But there's still much room for improvement."

You can't blame SharePoint for trying to appeal to the largest possible audience, but in it's attempt to please everyone it may actually be having the opposite effect on its customers. Steven Pogrebivsky looks at this theory in his recent article SharePoint's Reason for Success Could Also Be Reason for Its Failure.
While most organizations at the very least use SharePoint for document management, once you move beyond DM the variety and abundance of use cases are staggering. That is the root cause for both the successes and failures of SharePoint implementations."
