ZAP is an Powerful platform to build your own App

The Zenith App Platform (ZAP) lets you build your own Mobile App and refresh your content in real time

OIT’s Mobilize Labs team has the ability to design, build and deliver content driven customized mobile apps.  To do this we utilize a platform that the group created called the Zenith App Platform (or ZAP). ZAP leverages open source JavaScript frameworks to simultaneously construct both iOS and Android native apps that can be maintained more easily than coding directly in native code.  In addition, ZAP is architected, to allow apps to dynamically pull data from the web-based ZAP Platform .  Data that gets updated in the web ZAP platform is dynamically deployed to the apps when they are opened on a native device.  This is useful, because it means that clients can keep content in a native app fresh and not have to re-code, resubmit and update native apps just to display refreshed data. 


Mobile Research Apps and Edge Computing

OIT’s Mobilize Labs team has partnered with many researchers at UCLA and has experience working on NSF, NIH and VA grants.  The apps we build feature mobile data collection, Ecological Momentary Assessment (or EMA)  delivery of survey instruments at scheduled and random times.  We have integrated wearable devices, several different Bluetooth devices, Air quality sensors as well as many others.  We have extensive experience developing suppression algorithms so as to not over burden research participants.  Let us know if you want to learn more at 

The PRISMS App is an example of Research App we built
