A native app
I love the app and it's is perfect for me and my business.
Having said that, my employer has expressed concerns with privacy. Is there a way that this app can be non Internet based?
In other words, can I install it on a lap top some way?
Thank you for one of the most amazing products!
Although all our apps incl. the web-app can work offline if you lose your connection, we don't have a purely offline app that will never sync your data.
However, we can assure you that the privacy and the security of your data is our top priority, we never access any customer's data at any time, the connection is always SSL-encrypted and it's all stored on one of the world's largest and most trusted web hosts - Amazon Web Services.
Is there any way to shut the app off from syncing online?
The only way to do that is by disconnecting while having it opened. Again, we can guarantee you that we follow the highest privacy measurements and it's not possible for any of your data to be ever retrieved or accessed by anyone.
or they could use "1st Enterprise"? (http://istenterprise.com/)
In addition to David's answer, the data on Amazon Web Services is also encrypted as far as I know.
