REDCap Mobile App Now Available

The REDCap Mobile App is now available for your tablet or mobile device and allows REDCap data to be collected locally on that device without the need for an internet connection (either WIFI or cellular signal).

Once you are granted mobile app privileges for your project, download and install the app on your device. Next, set up the project in the app. Data can then be collected while offline and later synced back to the REDCap server.
