Mit einem personalisierten Themencluster haben Nutzer auch verwandte Themen und empfohlene Dokumente im Blick, wissen, welche Inhalte bei Kollegen beliebt sind und mit wem sie sich in ihrer Organisation vernetzen sollten. Hierfür genügt ein einziges, umfassendes Interface mit integrierter Cortana-Sprachsteuerung. AvePoint MyWorld ist aktuell für Windows Phone erhältlich.
