How can we improve Microsoft SharePoint Apps for iOS?

Show pages as they are browser

I expected to open the app and see my home page of SharePoint as if I were on any browser with enhanced navigation of the objects on the sites.

        Any plan for 2013 experience sites? Ditto on Jeremy McClure's comment. Our intranet is SPO using Publishing pages. Our home page is a custom aspx. When I go to it on iOS app, it just shows activity. We've created a mobile friendly page that works great in Safari browser... but doesn't render in the iOS app.

        Hi What constitutes a modern homepage ? we have a 2013 site so it will be older now but I was hoping that launching the app would take our people to the homepage but it is not ?

        What about the annoying banner at the top that is imposed by the mobile app? Can we ever get to the point where we have full control of how the site looks within the iOS app?

        The auto-assigned "site color" is almost always red or pink and does not look good at all.

        Could we at least get the "view desktop mode" button back in the app? This is a huge issue for those of us that have put effort into a responsive SharePoint site.

        I came here looking to post ghis exact need. It seems silly to click on a site and you don’t get the site, you get activity??? To the average user, that is totally confusing. It should just bring up the site

        If not set as default to land on the home page, then an option to set the landing page would be great. Thanks!

        Agree, landing page should be the "Home" page. The site activities is meaningful, but ordinary users (as me) would expect to see something similar to the PC view.

        This needs to be fixed asap. Homepage needs to be the same as PC browser.

        Currently it directs me to the “activities” page when I open the site thru Sharepoint APP, which is useless. It is supposed to open the Home page, same as how it works on PC browser.

        Had same problem. Need links to show homepage. The current default page by SharePoint is useless.

        Overlaid Calendar event is not shown in iOS SharePoint app. We tried to overlapped the Task Calendar onto the SharePoint Calendar.
        Testing on Android: Works normal and the calendar records can be shown (align with the web)
        Testing on iOS: No Tasks Calendar records are shown/

        The native iOS app needs to be at least as full featured as the browser. Right now the iOS aid pretty weak and very limited.
