    We just published members app for Android.

    Find it on Google Play: https://goo.gl/YcjLy7
    on AppStore: https://goo.gl/1pq7cx

    Just to remind – before your members could start using it, you have to configure the app for your account. Here is a help article: https://gethelp.wildapricot.com/en/articles/1645-mobile-app-settings

        Yes, let's discuss it on Facebook. Feel free to use related topic:
        https://www.facebook.com/groups/WildApricotTribe/permalink/1842692152516462/

        But if someone doesn't use Facebook but would like to leave a feedback, there is an e-mail mobile.crew@wildapricot.com (please, use the "App for members Android" subject) or feedback form on the Google Play.

        Great!

        Is there a place where we can discuss the app? We may have little suggestions and nitpicks which would help polish it, but which no one would bother to vote for on the wishlist.

        How about the Wild Apricot Membership Tribe on FB?

        Thanks, Jerry!
        As for beta version - we are close to release the 1.0 version so no additional betas exprected except one we released in June: https://rink.hockeyapp.net/apps/fafdfad013004fce842711145d80d65b/
        It contains only "Membership" part of the functionality but it's fully usable in this area.
        Feel free to check it and leave a feedback.

        I echo the comment from @Daniel_Friedman - the updates are helpful to know progress is being made (and prevent the "are we there yet?" constant question. If y'all are looking for Beta Testers (and have a signup form for that), please let us know. #AnxiouslyAwaitingAndroid :-)

        Thanks for the updates WA-Admin team. I suspect a lot of people are watching the development of this quietly in the background, like myself. I applaud you for listening to the users / administrators and look forward to rolling this out, in time, when you are ready to release. kr, dan.

        Hi Dima,

        Great progress on the Android member app. Some reports of instability here.

        When I switch to another app, returning to the app is impossible. Using alt-tab or the hard key, returns to a blank app screen without an UI or logo.

        I have to terminate the app with the x button in upper right corner. Starting it up again is works fine until I switch again. Seems that switching to other apps makes it hang.

        Device: Samsung Tab E 8.0"
        Android: 7.1.1
        16GB of RAM, 2GB microSD card installed

        I installed the Admin app as well and now I cannot get the member app to hang again. Will let you know if there is a problem again.

        I love your platform but I have to agree you shouldn’t have rolled it out until it was for both. Many of our members are upset by this. We have ages 30 to 98 and people feel we were unfair to have only had an app for a portion of our membership. What would be Very helpful is to a an approximate timeline for the android release.

        Larry, Team Mobile was talking only about Mary's request for a map gadget.

        As for the entire Android app, they responded to our comments, moved it up in priority and are working hard on it. It is a major project and I can only imagine what it took to move it to the top of the list.

      • Larry commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So we penalize users of android phones. If you are going to release an app it should be for both platforms. bad decision on your part for increasing rates and leaving out a whole group of members

      • Mary commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Very exciting as we can't promote the app unless it's for both iPhone & Android. Our volunteers volunteer at over 100 locations. Will this app include a Map gadget for custom Google maps?

        It would be better to not mix up different ideas.
        You can vote and comment on this topic: https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932/suggestions/34183843
        Or you can create the new one if you think this one is not exactly what you want.

        As a side note: our members search seeks through a first name also. So entering a "Michael" into the search field will show all Michaels in the list.

        Can I suggest to provide the ability to display members by first last or last, first. Only because some don't know other people's last names and might make it difficult to find them in the directory.

      • Karen Gottlieb commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I use mobile apps for my other clients for event registrations. Yes the iOS version always gets submitted first but once it's approved the Android version quickly follows. Why is there such a lag time here? Don't you realize you service both kinds of users?
