I want to share in a bit more detail our Android plans and how the full app is progressing. This is a bit risky but hopefully you guys will be understanding when we inevitably get delayed/run into problems etc. with all the usual things that happen in software development Transparency ftw.
We’ve been updating the current version of the Android app (v0.1) with bug fixes and will very soon (late this week/early next week) have an update in the Play Store that adds some more content to the waiting list and brings it up to par with iOS (this means we can send people on the waiting list additional information about wait times, ask them questions etc.).
Much more excitingly, our first full time Android engineer is starting on Monday! I’m hoping he’ll be able to take this thread over once he does because his focus will be to get something out to our wonderful Android beta testers as soon as possible with ‘main app’ functionality – this will be super basic, showing you your feed and balance, but from there should develop quite quickly.
I’m just as impatient as all of you because @dom and I are the only Android users in the office (once everyone sees how much better the version is I think that’ll change ). We’re also hiring for a second engineer to join so let us know if you know of anyone…
Hope that makes sense and thank you for your patience! We really are making progress on Android now and we can’t wait to share it with all of you
