Questions About Supporting Android Devices
Immediately after we announced the iPhone version, we received a small avalanche of emails asking, pleading, demanding and even begging that we create a version of StyleTap Platform for Android devices.
We continue to evaluate the technical and business case for supporting devices running Android, but we are not yet ready to make any public commitment.
However, we can say that we are very encouraged by two things:
- The improvements in the Android NDK make it more feasible for a complex application like StyleTap to work properly under Android
- The recent efforts by Google and others to reverse the fragmentation of the Android market into vendor-specific implementations that are incompatible with each other.
We appreciate that there is significant interest in a version of StyleTap for Android, and we will keep you updated here on the blog as to our progress and decisions.
