Thanks for asking! We are working on an Android version of the KnittingHelp video reference app. However, we have run into some roadblocks with handling the video across the different android devices and versions. So the project is taking longer than we anticipated as we figure out ways to work through the roadblocks. I don't have a timeline yet, but if you want to stay up to date with the progress and be notified of the release, the easiest way would be to follow our facebook page or twitter account.

Thanks!

I know there will be some people asking about Blackberry, Windows Phone, Kindle, etc. I'm afraid, at the moment, we don't have any plans for an app for those platforms. Sorry.

Just curious if the Android version has been released and I missed it. I haven't seen it on the Facebook page, but I see this thread is from 2011 and I just liked the Knitting Help page a few months ago. Thanks for any update you can provide

The app is getting the finishing touches applied and we are hoping to release it this Fall. It has been a long and perilous road to get the app finished and taken a lot longer than we expected. We will certainly announce it here, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Thank you!

Sheldon

Just curious about the ETA of the Android version of the app. There is, by no means, any rush, and I am really grateful that you've decided to include the Android community at all. Just wondering is all.

Artchic, you're right. Including Android is great. My next computer will probably be an Android version. Macs cost too much, MS isn't for me, and Linux is great for someone more adept than I, though mostly I'm very pleased with it. I do like my Android devices!

Maybe computer isn't techie-nally correct usage here. My DS was telling me about an Android notebook or netbook that someone he knows has and he said it would basically do anything my laptop does and probably more. With a price in the vicinity of $200, or so I was told, it wouldn't be much more than I just paid for my new Android phone, but it was $100 off so I got it for $149.

Chromebooks I found these online. I think Android is in a position to really move into the computer market and put a dent in the big brands' share. Maybe. Maybe not. My new phone is too smart for me. I finally can reliably answer a phone call on it.
