When will the app be a true mobile app that I can use offline rather than a web-based app?
Far and away, the most common suggestion was making the app a true mobile app that can be downloaded on the Apple/Google Play stores and accessed offline. Our original goal was to do just that, but over time we’ve come to understand that’s just not a possibility in the near future due to cost and other technical issues. We were just as disappointed as you are when we learned the news, but we still think the online version of TIPS is an incredible resource as-is. The sheer number of topics and ease of use helps make us one of the most valuable professional development options in the state for early educators and other helping professionals.
