SAP BusinessObjects Explorer 4.1.11 for iOS

Explorer for iOS gets a minor update.

SAP BusinessObjects Explorer 4.1.11 for iOS appeared in the iTunes store last week.  The app received iOS 7 compatability back in September and October with the releases of 4.1.9 and 4.1.10. The release notes in the iTunes App Store indicate only a single change for 4.1.11:

  • Technical improvements for iOS 5.1 only

The Explorer app (along with the recently updated Mobile BI 5.0.13 app) now has a new “flat design” icon for iOS 7 according to the latest What’s New in SAP BusinessObjects Explorer for iPhone/iPad User Guide from the SAP Help Portal . I find it curious that SAP bothered to make fixes for iOS 5.1 rather than raising the minimum OS requirement to iOS 6 as the Mobile BI app does.

Organizations on the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.1 platform no longer require this stand-alone app, as Explorer functionality is included in Mobile BI. However, it’s nice to see that SAP is maintaining this app for organizations still on XI 3.1 or BI 4.0.
