DynaMed Mobile App *** BIG CHANGES!!!!! ***

Effective today, users no longer need a serial number for the DynaMed app.

Instead, users can manage the app themselves from the Dynamed homepage.

Big changes include:
  1. Users will NO LONGER need to download the Skyscape/Omnio container apps. The new app will be “Stand-alone”. 
  2. Subscriptions will now be for 6 months instead of 1 year. 
  3. Users will need to reactivate every 6 months from a TU computer. 
  4. Current users who have a current key will still have 1 year from their most recent activation to move to the new app.
