SAILS APP PROBLEM
We (Fiske and the SAILS Network) are aware there is a problem with the SAILS APP. Our vendor is working on getting this fixed, but there is a good chance they're going to have to issue a new app to replace this one. Unfortunately the new app won't be available for a few weeks. We're hoping there will be a solution much sooner and SAILS will be putting out updates on the status. The best place to see what's happening is on our Facebook page. The online catalog, Enterprise, should be viewable from a mobile device, though it is not the same as the app.
Again we apologize for the service not being available and thank you for your patience.
