1.3 Brightchecker App – Introduction & Installation

The Brightchecker progressive web app (PWA) is a website that appears and functions like a mobile app. You get the same experience on mobile and desktop, on the platform you prefer.

You can use it on Apple IOS Safari (Phone & iPad), and for Android: Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Firefox Browsers. You can also use it on a MacBook (via Safari), Windows PC (via Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Firefox), and Chrome Book (via Chrome). There are only very minor presentational differences between the browser types, so the choice is entirely yours.

The app display will self-adjust to your device screen size.

If you want to know more about the ‘offline first’ features of the app, then this can be found underneath the installation guidance.

The Brightchecker App – Offline First 

Each instance of the PWA has its own database, so once you have synchronised it, it can work on or offline until you are ready to synchronise it again with the Brightchecker platform. Synchronising requires an internet / Wi-Fi connection. Synchronising duration is dependent on the amount of data that is being transferred. A loading message will be visible durable synchronisation, it will disappear when synchronisation is complete. Synchronisation data transfer will count towards your data usage on mobile devices, so consider waiting until you are back in Wi-Fi range if this is an issue.

Once you have started a job on a device the survey data relating to that job is only visible only on that device.
