Edit Egnyte Files Using Office Apps on Android and iPhone

Many of our customers rely on Microsoft’s desktop and mobile Office applications to stay productive, both in and out of the office.

That’s why we’re excited to roll out the latest versions of Egnyte’s Apps for Android and iPhone (6.6.5 and 6.1 respectively). With these new releases, Egnyte is available as a document provider on Android and iPhone devices for Microsoft’s Office applications!

You can now access and edit your Egnyte files directly from the Office apps. Any changes made will be saved back to Egnyte, all without ever needing to leave the Office apps. This enhancement ensures that our users can stay productive on the go and work on content from their favorite applications.

Note that iPad users can also take advantage of this new functionality by downloading our iPhone app onto their iPad.

Refer to this article for more details on how to connect to Egnyte from the Office apps.

Other iPhone Improvements

The new Egnyte app for iPhone also includes an option for folder-based search; this feature is already available on Android today. After searching, you can filter the results to look through all files, your current folder only, or for a folder by name.

Also note that Storage Connect is now supported in the latest version of the iPhone app. This enables you to access on-premises files from the convenience of Egnyte’s mobile app.
