it took me some time to get behind this problem: if your password contains a dollar sign '$', you will ALWAYS get an authentication error. The reason is, that the password control automatically inserts a blank behind the $, which seems to be a standard behaviour on android (my os version is 4.1.1). The user doesn't get any hint that his password has been manipulated as it isn't visible for him.
The only way to get the right password into the application is typing it in a different text editor, remove the redundant space and copy/paste the string into the password edit box.
There might be other special characters generating this problem - I didn't investigate.
Maybe you could make any arrangements to get this input control not manipulating the string entered by the user?
Thank you for posting at IG forums!
Could you provide us with a set of credentials that could be used to reproduce the issue?
I don't currently have one that contains a $ symbol in the password.
Should you be able to do so, please let me know so I can send you a private message.
thanks for your reply.
I'm afraid I can't give you access to our company's SharePoint system if it's that what you mean.
However, you shouldn't need any credentials to test this behaviour - the manipulation of the password takes place already at the time of input, so you should receive already a wrong password in your application (before you pass it to SharePoint).
I will let the developers know about this and update the post as soon as I have news.
in the meantime I've found out that the reason for this issue seems to be that you have enabled Android's autocorrection feature in your password box. I think you SHOULD fix that...!
I'd like to second this request. Being able to "Drag and drop files within Shareplus" is a big feature for us.
