Ever since we launched our iOS app on July 20th 2012, not a single day has gone by where we haven’t received requests for a Deputy Android app! Today, we are proud to announce that Deputy for Android is now available. Building this Android version has been our primary focus of the year. Lisi, Ethan, Theo and Kumar have worked tirelessly to bring it to life.

There is a wide range of of Android devices available and we can declare official support for the following devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4
  • HTC One
  • Google Nexus

Other devices may work but we cannot verify every device. We are working hard to expand the list of supporting devices so let us know your favourite. The earliest version of Android we plan on supporting is 8. If you are having any problems, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Deputy Android is a 100% native Java app. We have found native apps perform a lot better in terms of CPU, battery life, memory management and interface frame rates.

For users of our iOS app, we have a strong commitment to keeping that app (and now its Android counterpart) at the forefront of design, technology and business excellence. We’ll have a lot of exciting things to show you soon.

At this time, we have no plans to release the Deputy Kiosk app for Android and therefore continue to recommend the use of an iPad to run your Deputy Kiosk.
