More fun news to share. Our SSO app launcher (http://myapps.microsoft.com) is now available for iOS!
One of the things you've told us is that accessing resources from mobile devices is the 'new normal' and that you expect first class experiences on the devices you use and love. To ensure all of our key end-user experiences work really well on mobile devices, we have released our new "My Apps" application for iOS.
"My Apps" enables easy sign sign-on to all applications that have been integrated with Windows Azure Active Directory, and are accessible using a Windows Azure AD account. "My Apps" supports all of the features of our online access panel at http://myapps.microsoft.com, except it is optimized for your iPhone and iPad without the need to install a web browser extension.

Simply install and launch the app, sign in using your organizational account hosted in Windows Azure AD, and then select the app you want to sign into. Your app launches immediately inside the "My Apps" web browser, with no other sign in required. Users can also change their organizational password or edit their multi-factor authentication settings (if configured) from inside the app.

The applications that users see in "My Apps" are the same ones that appear in the online access panel, and are configured in the Windows Azure management portal. See Application access enhancements for Windows Azure AD for details.
"My Apps" for iOS 7 is available today in the Apple App Store, and versions for Android and Windows Phone will be available later this year. I hope you will give this cool app a try today and send us any feedback or suggestions you have!
