SmartOffice is a lightweight and easy-to-use mobile document productivity suite. User can view, edit, create, print, present and share Microsoft Office and PDF documents via their mobile device. SmartOffice is designed to provide an intuitive easy-to-use mobile workflow, perfect for today’s on-the-go society. New features include PDF form filling, full-screen viewing mode, and support for footnotes and endnotes. Additional advanced features are slated for release later in the year.
Artifex will showcase how organizations rely on SmartOffice to empower their mobile workforce. SmartOffice offers a variety of solutions that can be securely incorporated into a document workflow platform. The SmartOffice SDK seamlessly and securely integrates with EFSS, MDM or EMM environments, while the SmartOffice App can be wrapped within an enterprise security platform.
“In 2019 alone, over 4 billion records were exposed due to data breaches, so taking measures to prevent a breach in today’s increasingly mobile work environment is critical to an organization’s security,” said Miles Jones, President of Artifex. “Mobile workforces need to conduct their work efficiently, while Enterprise IT departments must be diligent in securing their networks. The SmartOffice SDK makes it easy to incorporate these essential work functions into enterprise security platforms. We like to refer to SmartOffice as the securable alternative to MS Office for mobile.”
SmartOffice SDK provides all the functionality and features of our SmartOffice app, easily secured within an enterprise’s encrypted network. Enterprise IT departments can prevent data breaches via SmartOffice SDK’s controlled access permission tools and customizable document editing controls, that extend down to the user or document level. Enterprise information is secured while employees are empowered to work with their MS Office and PDF documents while on-the-go.
“SmartOffice makes tremendous sense for mobile platform companies and organizations looking for a securable document viewing/editing tool for mobile deployment,”said Lisa Fenn, Director of Marketing for Artifex. “SmartOffice’s small footprint is well suited for mobile devices and was designed to integrate within enterprise security platforms. In addition, SmartOffice is fully functional without Internet connectivity. Files can be saved and edited locally with no Internet dependency. Not only does SmartOffice seamlessly support MS Office documents, but it also provides the added benefit of PDF viewing and annotation capabilities.”
For a demo of SmartOffice, please visit the Artifex booth #4224 Moscone Center, North Hall. Or, contact Artifex Software online.

Independent developer, Mike Clay announces the release of SongOwl 1.0, his new Apple Music library manager/player for iOS. SongOwl approaches navigation in a non-linear way that allows users to configure grouping and sorting options for each view in over 100 different ways. When user saves these preferences, they are stored in sequence as a reusable navigation pattern called a “Path”. You can even “seed” paths with specific collections, turning basically anything into it’s own mini-library. For instance, you could create a path specifically for The Beatles which shows albums followed by composers, allowing you to split Lennon from McCartney.
“One of Apple Music’s best features is the ability to build this awesome library,” explains SongOwl developer Mike Clay, “but it doesn’t feel very good to actually use it. There’s so many other things they have to accomplish in that app that there just isn’t much space left.” Despite having launched a successful music player before, Clay says it’s a challenge he hadn’t previously tackled directly. “When I started Cs [Music Player] all the third party options adopted pretty much the same basic structure as the stock player. You had to have an Artists tab and a Playlists tab, etc. When Apple Music came out, that pushed a lot of users my way – seeking out that classic interface. But it’s a lot of baggage; I never really took a step back and asked if there was a better way to approach this.”
Users can “snapshot” any library view as a favorite, to be quickly accessed from a dedicated tab. “I tend to obsess a little bit when I find a new band or song, and I listen again and again,” says Clay. “so I live in the Favorites tab, because it keeps that stuff a single tap away.” Users can easily filter out songs that aren’t on their device or safe for work, set a custom theme color, and even preview tracks without interrupting their existing playback queues.
SongOwl 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Music category.
