Android App: “Oracle Now”

For Android users, the “Oracle Now” App is a helpful addition to your support tools. When I first tried the “Oracle Now” Android App, I thought that it was purely a newsfeed and a list of upcoming conferences. A closer look proves that was just the start. Scrolling the header to the far right, I found the Support tab. The Support tab provides more features than I expected. I can quickly access my favorite notes or search for new topics. It also lets me track SRs and update on the go. This is a handy app to have available during a meeting so you can quickly give the status of an SR or reference your favorite knowledge content document without waiting to get back to your desk. A similar app is available for iPhone.

For more details on the “Oracle Now” Android App visit Google Play or check Doc ID: 1485646.1
