NB. SAP Note Viewer for iPad

Well, its been an interesting few months with the XCode platform and learning Objective C was interesting, but I am glad to announce my side project has been released and is available in the Apple App Store. The free app is called SAP Note Viewer for iPhone and is just that … a SAP OSS Note viewer which allows people to search for and download the notes and store them on their iPhone/iPad in PDF format.

The app also allows you to share the note details via email and mark specific notes as “Favorites” for easy reference.

Since this is Version 1, my intention is to simply get the ball rolling and hope for some feedback from the community to get some ideas on where it should go and what functionality everyone would like to see.

The iPad version is up for review and I am hoping it will be approved any day now. So if you use SAP Notes regularly – keep an eye out for an app called “SAP Note Viewer for iPad”

Here are a few screenshots and a link to the app here. Feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Some ideas for version 2:

  • Note syncing across devices (between iPad and iPhone).
  • A small and simple website where saved notes can be viewed, downloaded and then pushed to devices.
  • Better sort and marking features, including”Implemented”, “Delayed”, “Ignored” and so on.

    excellent start, newer versions could include:

    1) html format for “touches” functionality
    2) cross-referencing (similar to current web format)
    3) “comments”/voting section if anyone feels like making a comment on the official SAP statement
    4) comments could be linked to twitter as well

    in any event, i’m happy to see yet another SAP app go live.

      Hi Greg,

      Thanks for the response,

      Great ideas and thank you for taking the time to give me some feedback.

      Strangely enough the HTML format was removed from this version. It seems that the UIWebView from Cocoa does not enjoy all the javascript and quirky authentication from the SAP site causing it to inconsistently load the page, hence me opting for the PDF (which has its own adv/dis).

      Comments and voting is pretty interesting and could really differentiate the app from the standard notes browser/site.

      Hi Arie,

      Yes I agree completely. Version 2 *might* include that but since there are no search “apis” for the notes it makes it very difficult to use the SAP site and extract the search results.

      Thanks for the feedback!

    Die App funktioniert gut. Eine Suche mit Text wäre natürlich sehr nützlich. Die Hinweisnummer weis man ja nur selten. Die Fehlermeldung, wenn man mit Text sucht ist etwas verwirrend. Ich dachte erst, dass die Verbindung nicht funktioniert.

    Die Android App benötigt keinen S-User. Wie geht das denn? Suche per Text ohne Anmeldung. Das wäre perfekt.
