Mobile App Overview
The LifeOmic Patient Mobile App enables you to present a custom-tailored mobile app to your users by choosing from a wide range of components. Using the Mobile App Settings area of the LifeOmic Platform, you can toggle on or off various components to design a unique experience. As you choose components, a preview screen is shown with an approximate representation of what the app will look like for your users.
You can also add additional LifeOmic Platform features not included on the app preview screen. See Advanced Options for the Patient Mobile App for more information.
Add user information and invite users to use the app from the LifeOmic Platform interface. After they download the Patient Mobile App on their Android or iOS device, they open it to set up a password and accept the user agreements. After that, they use your configuration from the LifeOmic Platform Patient Mobile App Settings page.
