BlastIQ Mobile April 2021 Release

BlastIQ Mobile Hotfix Release - 4th May 2021

This hotfix addresses:

  • User and equipment not updating from Admin (this may still require a refresh of mobile, but no changes to admin settings)
  • Dipping holes to the same length as drill actual data works as expected

A notification will appear in the BlastIQ Mobile app on start-up once the update is available. We hope this will enable customers to perform the update without assistance from the specialist.
