Sometimes the map function within the apps won’t work, why is this?
In order to access maps within the app, you have to have your location services (GPS) activated. You will be asked via your device for permission for the AMI app to use use Location Services and you must allow this for the maps to work. Once access is enabled, and the location icon is tapped on the top menu bar of the apps, the maps should work.
Please note that the Map application requires the user to have a working Internet connection or mobile data in order to download map data. On Android phones, the default map application is Google Maps. On Apple phones, the default application is Apple Maps.

Can customers with corporate managed Smartphones use the apps?
Yes, but your work phone may have additional software on your device that controls how the phone is used and what can be downloaded onto the device. Major telecommunication providers like Vodafone, Spark and 2Degrees supply an application called AirWatch for this purpose. In these situations, the policy for applications is controlled by that employer, and if a customer can’t download the app onto their work phone, they should talk to their IT department.
How often can I redeem an offer?
There are different availability rules for each offer. Check details on the app for what offers can be redeemed when and how many times.
