Because Disciple.Tools was designed to be used in countries where Christianity is illegal, we wanted to diminish the risk of an app on a disciple maker’s phone called “Disciple.Tools”. It’s not a perfect protection, we know, but it does diminish the nature of the app to a casual inspection.
No. The mobile app pulls and pushes data to a Disciple.Tools server. It is designed “offline first” meaning the app will store your updates while you are without internet connection and sync back with the server as soon as you come online again.
The mobile app on the phone connects to the Disciple.Tools server through the mobile app plugin. If the plugin is not present, then the mobile app on the phone cannot connect to the Disciple.Tools system.
Disciple.Tools attempts to offer a core system with features needed/wanted by the entire community. It uses plugins to easily extend the system to add features that a particular team might want. The mobile app is in this category of optional expansion.
Installing the plugin is a one-time, 3 minute effort and will run in the background continually without further interactions (other than updates).
This mobile app (along with Disciple.Tools and the many plugins) have been built by the Disciple.Tools open source community.
