The user interface will vary some between the Apple iOS applications and the Google Android applications, however the functionality between the two is generally the same. The Scytec DataXchange application must be used to collect data and to setup basic information, such as Users, Password, and the Equipment. The mobile application will utilize the information entered in DataXchange as well as utilize settings such as the translation assignments. For example, if Spanish is set as the translation for a user then the mobile device will utilize the same Spanish translations.
