A note for the technically-curious!

You might be wondering why our app doesn't need to be downloaded from Apple's or Google's stores and why you need to bookmark it manually.

The reason for these differences is that ours is an example of a new breed of "web app", whereas apps downloaded from Apple's "App Store" and Google's "Play Store" are called "native apps".

We won't go into too much detail here but, in summary, the older style native apps are more expensive to develop, maintain and publish. They also need to be updated regularly, using software downloads to your mobile device. 

We decided to provide a secure web app, which runs in your device's browser. Simply bookmark it to add its icon to your smartphone desktop. 

When you open up our web app, you'll always be running the most up-to-date software - once bookmarked, there's no need for updates and downloads!
