Is There an App for That?

Is there an app for that?

We’ve gotten this question several times recently, and the short answer is “No, there isn’t a Stockpile app.”  That doesn’t, however, mean that you can’t access Stockpile on your mobile device. Stockpile inventory management solution is mobile compatible.

What does that mean? What is the difference?

An app is typically operated by the operating system owner. For instance, an Apple app won’t run on an Android device and vice versa. You’ll need to access the app store specific to your particular device. Apps have to be downloaded and installed on the device you wish to use to run them.  

Mobile websites are specifically designed to be readable and usable on the smaller screens of mobile devices.  They are accessed through web browsers.

If you have ever tried to access a website that is not formatted for a mobile device, you know how frustrating it can be. You may not be able to view the entire page. Links, buttons and other functions may not work properly.  Often the text will be too small to be readable and graphics can be distorted.  By contrast, a mobile compatible website will resize to fit the screen of the device that you are viewing it on. All links, graphics and text should be easy to view and fully functional.

The benefit of Stockpile not being an app is that you don’t have to commit valuable space on your mobile device to access Stockpile. It’s there when you need via your web browser, but it won’t be hanging out using up precious megabytes of space when you don’t.  Accessing Stockpile through the web also eliminates redundant setup.  Once you set Stockpile up on your computer, it will be right there waiting for you to log in from any device.  No need to set it up on each device you plan to use.  Left your work phone at the office?
