Tag your favorite reports in the Power BI Site in Office 365 and have them appear in the mobile app or browse and discover new Office 365 reports from your tablet.

Limited in functionality

It's a beautiful and user friendly app if you design your PowerBI reports while taking into account the app's limited functionality. For instance, the majority of PowerView reports, background images, image icons/slicers, and chart types are not supported. A standard worksheet "dashboard" that had slicers, a chart and conditional formatting did not render correctly (the chart and the table were rendered on separate pages and the slicers disappeared). The app's native visualization and color palette is very attractive; however, you lose your workbook's selected color theme which may be important for corporate branding.

Awesome graphics!

It's fantastic to have a simple app provide such visually appealing and functional data with such minimal effort! Huge time saver, very useful. Love it! (I'll give it five stars if they make it just a little bit more intuitive)

Please support all Pover View visualizations

Great idea but ... I have created Paver View report in Excel. Afterward I have used Power BI app for the same report. At few charts I have got message "unsupported visualization". Please update the app to support all Lover View chart visualizations.

Love the data Visualization

This app is on to something amazing. Enabling non-developers to customize their own visual reports. Would love to see more ways to organize reports within the app like windows 8.1 tiling sizes or even customizable list views to categorize groups or reports. Keep up the good work!

Does the job well

Nice and easy to use interface for presenting PowerBI reports. Folks who are used to interacting with PowerView reports will find this easy to use.

Next step for excel power users

Microsoft's push into self-service BI is a game changer for excel power users with non-IT backgrounds. It enables the people directly involved in the business decisions to perform powerful analytics without leaning heavily on those often surly IT departments. As a former investment banking analyst I became a power user in most respects, and from my point of view it's the most important tool for business analysts to master after key board shortcuts. A+ Microsoft. Keep it up.

So Far, So Good

Nice way to display Power View. I would use a greater variety of demos, such as images for products, maybe mapping? Animation of circle graphs would be nice to see.

Scatter Chart issue

Please add in full support for scatter chart

nice start but pretty weak

it strips out most excel functionality and my crashes when I try to open power view reports from my powerBi site. so far it's useless so I'm hoping for future updates.
