Example text (Linchpin Mobile)

With Linchpin Mobile you have your intranet with you - anywhere and at all times. Built upon Atlassian Confluence, the Linchpin suite allows companies to upgrade their wiki-based system to a full social communications hub. And it is now available for mobile devices as well.


Linchpin Mobile has the following features:

- Manage multiple accounts for all your Linchpin and Confluence instances.
- Read news posts from anywhere, anytime, and participate in discussions.
- Stay up-to-date on the latest news with native push notifications.
- Access microblog timelines, share your ideas with colleagues and customize your experience by setting up individual topic-specific filters.
- Network with colleagues on mobile by initiating calls or emails directly from within Linchpin Mobile.
- Always access all Confluence content and collaborate on it with your team by leaving comments.
- Mention colleagues directly to get them involved in the process quickly.


Linchpin Mobile is still in an early stage of development and we'd love your feedback: mobile@seibert-media.net

PLEASE NOTE: Linchpin Mobile only works with Confluence Server and DataCenter instances and requires a separate app to be installed in Confluence. Visit https://seibert.biz/linchpinmobilemarketplace to get started.

Public information section

Every Linchpin Mobile based app comes with a public section that is fully customizable. You can provide information on your company, legal information or imprint here for external visitors, employees and partners.


Please note: Since Apple wants every app in the public AppStore to provide some kind of value to any potential user, they regularly deny approval of apps that require a login in order to use the app. Therefor we highly recommend to provide at least some imprint information here.

  • HTML formatted content allowed (including rich text and external content)
