Microsoft SharePoint app behaves differently for ios and android. In ios it is asking for the option Online/On Premise. Whereas, in andriod it takes you directly to online account login page.

Please suggest a free SharePoint mobile app to open On-Premise SharePoint sites.

    You can check Microsoft PowerApps (powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us) When user download Power App from MS, they can use the apps inside that developed by the organization – YogaPanda Jan 18 '17 at 22:10

Unfortunately this isn't possible today, but support for OnPremis is coming at a later date.

To sign in to the SharePoint app, your organization needs to have an Office 365 subscription (Enterprise, Education, Government and DvNext) that includes SharePoint Online. Support for SharePoint Server 2013 and SharePoint 2016 will be added at a later date.

    Thanks for replying. But in ios there seems to be an option to select Online/OnPremise. – Sharanya Jan 6 '17 at 10:23
  • @Sharanya True! And you can have both on the same time in the iOS app – Benny Skogberg Jan 6 '17 at 10:26
  • Is it recommendable to use third party apps for viewing SharePoint sites? – Sharanya Jan 6 '17 at 10:29
  • If it works for the user, then yes - otherwise no – Benny Skogberg Jan 6 '17 at 10:32
  • Do you have a timeline when Support for OnPermis will start? – Sharanya Jan 6 '17 at 13:53
