Mobile browsers do not do a great job of remembering your D4H member login credentials. Getting into D4H readiness and response when on the go (in the field) can be tricky, especially if you have secure account credentials. Response Utilities for D4H remembers your login credentials for you, and allows access to much of your D4H data (incidents, exercises, members, groups, and more) with ease.
As a native mobile application, Response Utilities for D4H has two significant advantages over a mobile browser. First, Response Utilities for D4H has control of local persistent storage (storing the D4H ‘login’ access token, and your team / member details.) Second, Response Utilities is fully responsive to the size of your device, presenting information natively to fit the screen, no scrolling / panning / zooming required.

Starting with release 1.0.4 (in beta testing) Response Utilities additionally easies mobile navigation to D4H features on the website. When you do need to access the D4H website in a mobile browser, Response Utilities will attempt to jump you to your goal, saving you navigating from the dashboard. It cannot perform the login in this case, but it will save you some frustration by removing navigation steps.
Apart from the list below, Response Utilities will also navigate you to an individual member’s profile, and qualification card, and an individual incident’s or exercise’s detail page.
