Using kintone on Mobile Devices
You can access kintone from mobile devices to perform the same actions as those on PCs, such as viewing notifications and entering information. You can access information on kintone anytime while you are out of the office.
The two methods that you can use to access kintone from mobile devices are as follows.
Method 1: Using Mobile Web Browsers
You can use Safari for iOS or Chrome for Android to access kintone. For both Web browsers, the latest version is supported.
Start your mobile Web browser (Safari for iOS or Chrome for Android) and enter the URL of your kintone in the address field. Then, you can see the mobile-optimized view of kintone.
For details on how to configure settings, see "Using kintone on Safari for iOS and Using kintone on Chrome for Android.
Using kintone on Safari for iOS or Chrome for Android is better in that links on kintone can be opened into another tab.
Some organizations require users to configure some settings in advance for security. If entering the URL on Safari for iOS or Chrome for Android results in an error, it means that your organization requires some environmental configuration such as installing a client certificate.
For details on environmental configuration, see Accessing Services from Public and Home Networks.
Method 2: Using the Mobile App
You can use the mobile app "Kintone Mobile" to access kintone.
To download Kintone Mobile, go to App Store or Google Play and search "Kintone", or click the banner below. Available iOS and Android OS are described in System Information.
Install Kintone Mobile and set your subdomain, login name, and other details to use the app. For details on how to install the app, see Using the Mobile App for iOS or Using the Mobile App for Android.
Kintone Mobile is better in that you can receive push notifications. This helps you timely notice messages from team members or notifications from workflows.
