New Mobile App

A bit of background context...

As of early 2020 we have moved our mobile app development to a Progressive web app (PWA) (or WebApp according to Apple) model.  A PWApp is basically a mobile website with the functionality of a full mobile app. 

This model is fast becoming the new standard of mobile app development - even Instagram has a PWA version of their app. It costs less to maintain,  the app is standardised across all platforms and improvements and functionality are automatically updated on the app as the developers release the updates.

All our future app development will happen on our PWApp.

Our current apps...(March 2020)

Our current Android app will remain available in the Play Store for the time being and both apps will pull live data from your database.  NOTE: Users can use either app, but we suggest prompting users to move over to the new mobile app. 

Our current iOS app will be unavailable for download from the App Store from the beginning of April 2020. It will continue to function on phones where it is downloaded, but it will not be available for download again.

The new app will solve the push notification problem for our Android users, but not immediately for our Apple users.
