They just can't leave anything alone! "App" now is "Add-in"???


Just as they have gotten everyone to call everything an "app", they have to change it again. Lists = apps, libraries = apps, web parts = app parts… everything was to be an app. Now everything is a "add-in"?

  • "SharePoint apps" are not SharePoint Add-ins.
  • "SharePoint app parts" are now "SharePoint add-in parts"

But strangely…

  • The SharePoint "app launcher" and the "My Apps" page are keeping their old names.


Everybody say "Add-In"! Smile


The name "apps for SharePoint" is changing to "SharePoint Add-ins". During the transition, the documentation and the UI of some SharePoint products and Visual Studio tools might still use the term "apps for SharePoint".

So… what is an "App"?

List? Libraries?  Not too sure anymore…

Oh well…
