Apps

Q: Can we push apps to an iOS/Android device?

Yes, via the App Store or Google Play Store.

Q: Do you have a sample or instructions for how to push individual cases to an iOS/Android device?

Yes, the Starter Kit sample that is shipped with the system shows you how to do this.

Q: Do you support the development of apps for diaries e.g.?

No, but we allow custom apps (created by you) to be hooked into the system.

Q: How do the Blaise Apps work?

You can upload surveys or specific cases to an app. The survey can be connected (Client-Server) or disconnected (stand-alone). In disconnected mode, the data will be stored (encrypted) on the device until you connect again and upload the data.

Q: Is it possible to launch a Blaise 5 instrument (with parameters/data) from our own iOS and Android app?

Yes. The system ships with a sample called Starter Kit. This gives instructions on how to build your own app to do this.

Q: Why are there multilple versions of the Blaise iOS App in the Apple Store?

They belong to different versions of Blaise. Since we cannot upgrade while people are using it in production, we have to release another version for new major releases. The 5.0.5 version is not compatible with 5.2 or higher, because of added security functionality in 5.2. We recommend using the latest version. The currently available versions are: 5.0.5, 5.2, 5.2.5 and 5.3.0.
Version 5.4.2 is in testing and will be available soon.

Q: Will it be possible to use sensor data? If so, when?

A first version of this will be available from version 5.5 scheduled for December 2018.
