It has been some time since I posted and wanted to inform those who are awaiting the update to the GPS Fishing Guide for Android. On April 1, Google introduced new Android mapping sofware which is delaying the Android update.

Their latest software version seems to have some issues with how they support custom maps which are the cornerstone of my app. We are working through the issues but it is significantly delaying our efforts.

Please accept my apologies and be assured that the update will come. I just don't want to introduce an inferior product by rushing into this update.

I apologize for the delay in getting the GPS Fishing Guide for Android out but I should have the first prototype early next week. It appears I am breaking some new ground on the Android with the design and this is making the process somewhat more time consuming than first anticipated.

I now have a prototype of the Android Version but it still needs some work. Because of the late date, I will most likely release the Android app once I've debugged it without putting it out for large scale testing and do fixes as necessary. While this is risky, I'm pretty confident that any errors that show up will be minor or related to specific phone models. I'd rather get this in your hands ASAP.

For those who volunteered as App testers on Android, I apologize.

The app is designed to work on both Android tablets and phones but I haven't installed it on a Nexus myself so I'll tentatively say yes!

You should be able to install and use it on both devices simultaneously as a matter of fact. You can do that now with the existing app.

Unfortunately, there are so many manufacturers of Android out there, each with their own little customizations that I can't possibley test every device so I don't make promises.

One phone version from HTC for instance had a cutom app built into the phone by the manufacturer called Footprints that userped the navigation function of other apps. You had to uninstall Footprints which is a PIA with built in apps to make the navigation work. That is the challenge in Android development. Manufacturers are free to tweak the Android to their preference whereas Apple is all about consistency.
