    How ironic. On your 15-month-old page announcing apps for iPad and iPhone, you show an ad for Droids Maxx and Ultra - which are Android smartphones. This same page mentions that you are working on apps for Android and Windows mobile devices. I have my Insider subscription; I'm more than ready for my Android app.

    When will the android app be available? It's now 2013.

  3. user-1132464 July 12th

    well, it's WAY past the end of 2012 and still no android edition!! Don't see why this is SO hard to do.

  4. User avater LiseSB October 1st

    Looking forward to the Android AND Windows apps later this year.

  5. User avater Scheri September 28th

    So glad you will offer for Andriod users in the future.

  6. DMBDMB September 25th

    Glad to hear us android users are not forgotten!

  7. User avater cricketrn September 25th

    Duh! I should have read all of the above & would have known that you will have the android app by the end of the year. Yay!

  8. User avater cricketrn September 25th

    Will you be offering an app for Android in the future?

  9. User avater Susan545 September 20th
