iMentor has created a mobile app for both iPhone and Android that can be used for Chat between mentors and mentees, as well as viewing Tasks and Announcements. The app works just like any other instant messaging service, where users send direct messages to each other including emojis, files, and pictures.
The app makes it easier for pairs to communicate without sharing any personal information like phone numbers or email addresses, helping them build their relationships through Chat.

Users can send emojis, photos, and files to their matches via the "Chat" tab. The app works just like texting, with messages being sent instantly.
The app has all of the same functionality as regular mobile apps, with push notifications and the ability to edit your profile picture under "profile" in the app's menu.
The app is also synced to the web Platform. Sending a message on mobile sends it everywhere:

Similar to the desktop Platform, mentees/mentors can also view and respond to past Lessons as well:
If you allow the app to send notifications, they will show on the lock screen, as banners, and in the recent feed.
The app requests access to the following permissions: Notifications, Camera, and Photos. Allowing the app this access will allow you to use all its features. If you do not allow these permissions and change your mind in the future, you may change the permissions in your Settings. Below are screenshots and descriptions of the permissions asked.
