    Status update as of 12/24/2017

    Release to Google Play Dec 18, 2017

    Requires Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) API 23 or higher.

    Price is $9.99

    V1-Driver [Pre-Release] - Android Apps on Google Play currently at Version 1.0.0.53
    V1-Driver [Beta] - Android Apps on Google Play currently at Version 1.0.0.53

    Even though this is "Pre-Release/Beta" I need to charge for it because Google does not have the same Beta capabilities Apple has. I had 150 Beta testers on iOS that used the app for free for months.
    That would be 150 lost sales and more importantly lost reviews if I did it Google's way, which is not acceptable.

    I'm sure most of the reviews on the iOS Version came from former Beta Testers.

    Known Issues

    Some option changes might need for the App to be restarted.

    When reporting issues please include

    Please include your handle name from this forum, a description of the issue and the TIME it happened. Even if we discussed it before, it's easy for me to lose track.

    Tested on...

    Pixel (One) running Android 8.1 Oreo (API 27)
    HTC 10 running Android 7.0 Nougat (API 24)
    HTC M9 running Android 7.0 Nougat (API 24)
    Tested API 23, 25, 26 in Emulation.
    Tested Tablet in Emulation

    Versions

    Even though V1Driver can run on Android 23 through 27 it is "Targeted" at 27. What that means is, it has to follow all the rules for 27, which can be a royal PITA.
    It's a ton more work, but it forces a better design. It also forces you to use techniques that have been available since Android 21 or older !!
    On Android 26 (Oero), Google put a hammer down and stopped allowing a lot of short cuts because they wanted developers to do it the right way.
    This is when the Posts on other Android apps started popping up that my GPS stopped working started, wait it's working, no it's not.
    Because of this I also had to bypass a few critical things in Valentines ESP library that made it difficult to Target 27.

    The "Delays" of getting this thing out the door was my educating myself and starting something over from scratch, several times and making some hard choices.
    I always prefer go with the absolute latest. Even though it was a ton more work to do so. It's starting to pay off.

    TODO

    HFP if this is possible on Android, will test 3rd Party App also
    Multiple V1 Family support (masking out auto connecting to specific LE Dongles)

    What a pleasant surprise! I'm happy to help in any way I can. Since I no longer own a V1 I'd be happy to donate to your PayPal or pay for a copy or two of the app for users on here :)

    That’s really cool to hear. It would be nice to have a single app to point people to regardless of platform and Bluetooth version. If it’s anything as good on Android as it is on iOS then it’s going to be fantastic!

    This could be great news. If enough code is shared, development expense can be spread over a larger base thus funding more features, etc. And, if the installed base gets large enough, crowd sourcing becomes practical. Congratulations!

    Wow! What an exciting time to be a V1 owner!

    The cynic in me is thinking "now that we're getting all the great apps for the V1 that run on Android, Mike V. will be announcing the impending release of the V2 which will, of course, not work at all with the current API."

    What's the minimum level of Android are you planning to support?

    I have not decided on final target yet. I will go as old as possible but still have all the hooks I want.

    It will definitely have overlay after the core is solid. I’m just setting expectations that it might not be there initially.

    I realized my opening post was a little long winded. But it said my best guess is around 4 weeks to start doing betas.

    I'll be a tester as well when your ready. Will it support both the regular and LE dongle or just the LE?

    Why isn't this in the V1 section? I would think it would get more attention.

    I posted a link to this thread in V1 section.

    Yes, both Dongles are working, just tested both yesterday.

    Until I have something folks can kick the tires on, it probably won't get much attention.

    Thanks !!!

    And V1 driver is for the V1. Also V1 driver is known to be for iOS so an Android user wouldn't even go into that section.

    Can this thread be a sticky since development is coming along well and there is likelihood the app will be released in the near future? I know @mswlogo had a condition in the OP which mentioned the project would be scrapped if things didn't go as planned on Android, but it seems we will very likely see V1Driver on the play store. It certainly help people quickly navigate to the status of the app on both platforms.
