Mobile app for accessing Metric Insights
Metric Insights has a mobile app for accessing Metric Insights. It is very similar to the web browser access that you are familiar with, but the mobile app is customized for the smaller footprint of your mobile device.
Differences in mobile app from web browser
Metric Insights mobile app is basically a "mobile" view into the original web browser application you use for accessing Metric Insights. The mobile app uses similar HTML pages to view data.
2. One other difference is mobile adds the ability to push notifications (Alerts) to your phone tray. In Metric Insights you have the option to receive Alerts daily or immediately via email. With mobile, you can also receive Alerts immediately to your phone tray. This requires one extra thing in Metric Insights. For iOS mobile app (e.g, iPhone) it pushes to your phone through the Apple Gateway (Production: gateway.push.apple.com:2195, Dev: gateway.sandbox.push.apple.com:2195). For Android mobile app it pushes through the Google gateway (https://android.googleapis.com:443). So to use the phone tray alert capability you will need to open connectivity to those gateways on the internet.
