They killed InfoPath!

Microsoft decided that it's time to move on and stop introducing new versions of InfoPath or InfoPath Services. Of course it was obvious that things would have to change, because people weren't able to view InfoPath on every device. And I get that decision to cut loose ends and make sure that future products will be more open to devices like phones and tablets.

I just think it's sad to see that this easy way to produce forms won't exist beyond SharePoint 2013. I had a lot of fun with it and it was very easy to use and to "develop" for. You could bring up easy forms in minutes and they were easy to use for the users.

Hopefully Microsoft delivers an easy way to port existing InfoPath forms (as promised) and also delivers a new version of a product, that is also easy to use without coding. Let's see what the future got in store for us.

The original post.

(The emphasis on the word "easy" was supposed to be that way. InfoPath is an easy to use product, that's why I loved it.)
