Apps

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

Via App Store or Google Play Store.

Q: Do you have a sample or instructions for how to build our own app to launch a Blaise 5 instrument (with parameters/data) in iOS and Android?

The system ships with a sample called Starter Kit.

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

Yes, a sample using the Starter Kit.

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

Any custom app can be created by you.

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: 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.

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

A first version of this will be available from version 5.4.0, scheduled for October, 2018.
