Mobile app for phone/tablet
I know this has been brought up before, but it really would be helpful to have access to an IOS (or relevant) app, similar to the likes of LinkedIn.
Personally, I much prefer to use an app than any web browsers on my phone/table. Plus an app would prompt users to check in more regularly.
Thanks for your suggestion to improve the Registry. We are marking this suggestion as declined, as it is not something that is in line with our current priorities.
The greatest value of ORCID is in the integrations with other systems of publishers, funders, research organizations, and more. These integrations work using standard OAuth2, and would not function well in a native mobile app. This is why we strive to make the user interface of our Registry as functional as possible in mobile browsers.
Let us know if we can improve the user experience for ORCID in mobile browsers, or in other aspects of the ORCID Registry.
