Nuxeo Drive Mobile Edition is a Nuxeo add-on that enables the synchronization of folders or workspaces from the Nuxeo Platform on your iOS device.
Here is the big picture of how Nuxeo Drive Mobile Edition works: It enables you to browse the content of the Nuxeo Platform from your device and mark some workspaces or folders to synchronize.
