Most VA Apps that display your personal health information are built like websites to ensure they reach the largest number of platforms, devices and users possible. Because these VA Apps are completely Web-based, no download is required, and none of your VA medical information is stored on your device by any VA App unless you request it. This method also helps save memory on your mobile device, because it uses very few of your device’s resources.
You can easily save a VA App icon to the home screen of your mobile device and access it as you would any other app. Click on the type of mobile device you are using below for instructions.
If your mobile device is not listed below or you have any questions about using your mobile device, please contact your device manufacturer for instructions or to assist with troubleshooting technical issues.
