Using VideoAsk with your Apple device

With our VideoAsk iOS app, you can create new content and keep up-to-date with your latest interactions when you're on the go.

The VideoAsk iOS app acts as a companion to our more robust web-based platform. It allows you to check in on what's new when you're away from your computer, create videoasks on the go, and send replies to your respondents via video.

It's especially useful if you have a live call answer type set up on one of your videoasks as it allows you to answer calls from respondents directly from your iPhone or tablet.

Its functionalities somewhat differ from both the web platform and the Android app. Keep reading to learn more about making the most of the VideoAsk iOS app.
