Poking around the Cisco Learning site this morning, I stumbled across their Cisco Mobile Apps page, where I found the proverbial plethora of stuff for all the major mobile platforms. Items are available for Apple iOS, Android, Blackberry, and even Symbian/Nokia, and total 32 altogether (iOS 20, Android 7, Blackberry 2, and Nokia 3). This screen snippet captures some of the more interesting items (all available for iOS):
Given that they cover the broadest spectrum of offerings, the iOS items include various basic tools, as well as outright cert prep tools. Among the tools we find Cisco AnyConnect (Secure VPN), Global Internet Speed Test, Cisco Jabber IM, Cisco Mobile 8.0 and 8.1 (turns an iOS device into a full-featured Cisco IP phone), Cisco Mobile Supervisor (extends the Cisco Supervisor Desktop to iOS devices), Cisco Unified Mobile Communicator, and WebEx. Outright cert stuff is somewhat more sparse, with the M-Learning Viewer (provides access to premium — which means “for a fee” — content from the Cisco Learning Store, available for iOS, Android, and Blackberry), and the M-Learning Test & Study tool (provides access to practice tests and related study materials, available through iTunes only for iOS) its chief offerings for cert support.
All in all, though, there’s a very nice mix of tools and utilities available to mobile users from Cisco. If you haven’t already acquainted yourself with what’s out there, visit the Mobile Apps page to check things out!
