The Gist mobile app, Gist for iOS and the Gist for Android, allows you to take Gist Inbox on the go. They allow you and your team to reply to conversations quickly, so you don't have to wait until you get back to your office or your desk.

The Gist mobile app can be installed on iOS devices running iOS 14 or later or on Android devices running Android 7.0 or later. It is possible, but not supported, to run the app on Macs with Apple Silicon.
