Mobile app for accessing Metric Insights
Metric Insights provides mobile apps for both iOS and Android. The mobile experience is built around viewing and collaboration. Content can be viewed, shared, comments can be added, and Alerts can be processed.
Differences in Mobile and Web Apps
The Metric Insights Mobile App provides quick access to your Metrics, Reports and other content. For further details, see Understanding what is accessible via the Mobile App.
The mobile application is designed to be the smaller sibling of the main web application, wherein there is a close relationship between each, allowing settings for the Mobile App to be edited from the Web App.
Technical Notes: For both iOS and Android, the mobile app is a hybrid of native code and HTML code that is rendered inside the application (Metrics, Reports, External Reports, and the content displayed Executive Brief is all HTML code). By the end of 2019, the entire application will be written in native code.
