iPhone and LDAP
LDAPeople lets you do queries towards LDAP based directory servers for addressbook records, and it will then display a list of entries that match your query and provide a detailed view for each record found. In the detail view, you can tap on a persons phone number, e-mail address or url and your device will instantly call that person or open your e-mail application or web browser for the selected address. Perfect isn’t it?
LDAPeople supports both LDAPv2 and LDAPv3 using anonymous bind or simple authentication. Everything that depends on attributes specific to a certain LDAP directory server is configurable. You are free to configure a custom LDAP filter for queries and there’s even a complete attribute mapper that maps attributes from your directory server to iPhone addressbook attributes according to your needs.
Before you buy the application, please note that LDAPeople uses the OpenLDAP library. Luckily we do so as well at work, so setting up for me was a matter of filling out two entries.
Thank you Boneware, your application made the iPhone a lot more easy to use at work.
