use the browser as a delivery mechanism, Yellowfin for the iPhone is a
native application, which makes full use of the iPhone=92s functionality
to deliver Yellowfin=92s renowned industry leading, ease of use and
analytic capabilities. =93What=92s different about the Yellowfin
application compared to other BI apps is that we understand that the
