Does this mean I can complete my course from my phone?

While this app is an invaluable resource, it is not an alternative to your laptop or desktop, as access to a computer is still needed to access exams, quizzes, and active learning. In other words, you may not complete your course from the Outlier Course Companion app, but it is a helpful tool for reviewing course content on the go!
