I want to know if there's a way to create an addin for Sharepoint similar to the Outlook Plugins you can develop in Visual Studio.

I've seen I can create a "Web Part" but I don't think that's the same kind of application and I've had some problems trying to synchronize it from the server to a Sharepoint client, actually I'm not even sure that's possible.

Hopefully somebody has some sort of answer for this as I have not found much clear info. on this topic. Thanks.


Look in to the App framework for SharePoint 2013. It is quite new stuff, but more and more documentation and blog posts are available online.

Here is the MSDN startpoint for developing both Office 2013 Apps and Sharepoint 2013 Apps.
