In other news, an update for the miSecureMessages app for Apple devices was announced. This new update features a redesigned user interface that improves usability and boosts performance and responsiveness. The Apple miSecureMessages app, which replaces pagers by providing secure two-way communications, is available for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. The app saves hospital staff more than one minute per communication, compared to legacy pager technology.
With the new version 3.0 miSecureMessages release, users can add passcodes of up to 50 characters, helping improve security. Several new sound options are included, giving users more choices. Multiple message threads can be deleted at the same time, saving time for users.
Amtelco’s Vice President of Research and Development, Kevin Beale stated, “The new version of the iOS app so closely emulates native Apple apps that users will instantly understand it. Just as the most recent update that included contact circles and group messaging capabilities, we are continuing to add impressive features to miSecureMessages, while helping ensure security to keep data private.” The app is also available for Android and BlackBerry devices.
