      It is now possible to bookmark 99nicu.org on your smartphone browser (Safari for Iphone users, Chrome for Android users) and place the bookmark on your mobile phone screen. When you then tap on the "bookmark", browsing 99nicu looks and feels like using an app  
      If you have an Android phone, you can get push notifications when topics you follow are updated etc, just go to your notification settings in your profile to active such push notifications. As of now, Iphone users cannot get push notifications yet. Instead, you need to rely on the notifications given on 99nicu (on my screen shot below, the nb "6" in the right upper corner)
      This technology is called Progressive Web Application (PWA). IMHO is works so well that I will mostly access 99nicu.org from my phone now!

    • Today on #WorldPrematurityDay2020, we share a special thought to all infants/children born prematurely and their families. Naturally, we would also like to tribute NICU staff globally working so hard to help infants and families afflicted by preterm birth.
      Every year, ~15M infants are born prematurely. Most survive to healthy lives but preterm birth is also the leading cause of death in children <5y.

    • You can now beta-test the 99nicu smartphone app
      99nicu.org is based on a software package from Invision Community, and they are now offering "app"-functionality that we can now beta-test. The app is focusing on the discussion forums, the core feature of a web community. 
      The current version of the app is a 'multi-community' app; i.e. a directory of communities using this software. This means that you install an app called "Communities By Invision" and within that app marks 99nicu as your favourite/starting page.
      Later, probably during 2021, it will be possible for us to get a "stand-alone" app.
      First of all, install the app:
      Link for iOS: https://testflight.apple.com/join/bzsWOXFO Link for Android: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.invisioncommunity.communities  
      Start the app and you will see the following - click on the and "Education" category
      Scroll down to find "99nicu" and tick mark the "+" to make 99nicu your favourite

      Off you go
