With Open as App, you can mobilize them. Instantly you can turn your Excel solution into a user-friendly app and share them with clients, partners, and co-workers. No problem, if the Excel file is changed. The app will be synchronized and always up to date.
List Apps with contact lists and maps
List apps are very popular. So we have been working on improving the way they can use on smartphones and tablets. Contacts just have to be up to date and always available. Good news for all working with Excel or other spreadsheets as a contact database. Now you can instantly make your contacts available as an App on your smartphone, tablet, or desktop.
