There seems to be a group of users (albeit a small group) who is eagerly awaiting the release of an Accordance Android app. It has been made clear that such an app is in development, but nothing more has been said beyond this. Can we get at least a glimpse of when such a release will be? I'm not looking for a release date, I'm just wondering if it is worth waiting or if I should find an alternative for now. Should we expect it by the end of the year? Next year? Five years?

We don't do vaporware. The work is progressing but until we see a beta version we cannot even begin to predict a release date.

I'm super excited to see Accordance come to Android. Not sure if you've done a poll but personally, I think you'll have a larger customer base than may be immediately apparent.

I assume that the audience waiting for an Android version of Accordance Mobile is very significant since the Android user base is so much larger than iOS. Although it's roughly 50/50 in the US, it's more like 15 (iOS)/85 (Android) worldwide. All that to say, we know the numbers for Android are very large and we will be there as soon as possible!

Having had to change carriers I also had to change phones due to financial constraints so I am SUPER excited and anxious to see Accordance for the Android.

Can someone confirm this is still in development. I have transitioned to android and finding using my accordance only on PC tricky and would massively appreciate this app. I'm glad I ran a search as I didn't think this was in development and was about to look at moving to another program.

So still no ETA? And do you need a tester? I'd happily trial this and report bugs just to have use of it.

Thanks.

I have been long watching and waiting for this. As the months go by and add up, I am making some assumptions that could be very wrong... But posts semeed to be written in a way that would indicate an outside group or developer has been contracted to do this rather than in-house staff. Just a guess. But it also would seem that the group chosen is either too small to do the job, doesn't have the right resource allocations, or the priority given the project is lower than other things being worked on. I can understand that supporting existing paid customers on existing platforms is a priority, and perhaps it is yet unknown how much possible additional revenue could be generated by a new platform. However, I would argue that for a lot of current users, Mac and Windows users, they either presently or in the future may find the need to be on an android platform device, phone or tablet, and this really could be viewed as supporting them in their paid investment in the platform by allowing them to truly be platform independent.

We are well aware of the importance of getting the Android version out. We could not divert our entire development team to the project, but we do have an experienced developer working on it. There is a lot of code to rewrite for a totally new (to us) OS, so we cannot simply use the bulk of the main code as we did for both iOS and Windows. It's coming along nicely, but we aren't yet at the stage where we can release a beta or predict an actual release.

Thank you Helen.  Im sure the developer is working hard on what would be a very big project.  I will be watching eagerly for this and reiterate I would happily be an alpha tester never mind beta!.  Transitioning from apple has mostly been a very positive experience however I find the laptop version of accordance really hard to use and the ios version really easy to use, so seeing this on android would be a massive help for me research wise.  If all it could do was read and search modules I would be thrilled!.

That's what we told helen for the ios version. And we are never satisfied!!!!!
However, the interlinear is a game changer for me. Having got it after so long and missed it sooooooo much at conference discussions, i would not want to be without it again.

I'm also eagerly waiting the Android version and also agree that just the ability to read our modules would be amazing!

I can hardly wait to ditch my iPad and use my Samsung tablet and my phone for Accordance. The only reason I even have an iPad (mini) is Accordance. Just not fond of Apple's mobile devices at all.

My starting to feel like a fan boy... Not saying iOS products are perfect but have found them very well designed and higher quality than many Android products... But I wish all Droid users a speedy access to Accordance.

I loved my iPad but had a look at android and bought a low cost galaxy tab 4 7 inch. It's dated and runs kit kat but I love it, the Samsung apps are really good and I really like the widgets and being able to place them where I like. Still like iPad don't get me wrong but the price and the fact the android system is more flexible means I'm likely to stick with Samsung for now (note Samsung not Google lol... The Samsung apps are far and above better than the Google ones).
