New Release - CareForIT Carer App (Android)

Posted on 20 February 2018

There has been a new update to the CareForIT Carer Android App. If you have automatic updates switched on, your App will update for you. If you prefer to update manually, please access the Google Play store to download the update.

Details of this new release are as follows:


Forms have now been upgraded to include:

  • Bodymaps
  • Signatures
  • Agree Boxes

Check in/out warning parameters

Carers will now be warned if they attempt to check into a visit very early, or check out of a visit too late. This is currently sat at the system wide times of an hour prior to check in and an hour after check out.

Carers will still be able to check in and out, but will be presented with a warning message.

Location Visits

The app now allows Location based visits to display. Currently there is no profile page for this, but the INFO area displays the location address and carers are able to check in our out of the visit.

Contact Numbers

Client contact numbers are now shown in the INFO area. Please note that in order for a Client’s phone number to display on the App, you must have selected on the CareForIT desktop site for the number to be visible. This is done on the first page of the Client profile, by clicking the cog next to the telephone number.

Bug fixes

There was an issue where the app was closing on launch for some users. This is now fixed.

Intermittently, an issue can be seen where the App spins on loading. A button has been added that will reset the App after 15 seconds should the spinning occur.
