Make Mobile app for members available on Android
Another month has passed and we have some news on our development.
All this time we worked on the “registration on an event” process.
It will be quite the same as on iOS:
After choosing a registration type a user goes to the Registration form screen where he adds all necessary info:
Then a user can check all data in the Review and confirm screen:
A registrant can choose to pay from the app or to pay later (if related options were enabled by administrator)
If the “pay online” option was chosen, a user goes to the payment screen
That’s it! Registration completed successfully
Our next step will be the My tickets screen
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"
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.
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, this feature isn't in our roadmap.
Feel free to create a new idea here. The more votes it'll get the more likely we'll add it in the future.
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.
To make an Android version we need to develop a whole new app with the same functionality. It takes a lot of time. As soon as we'll release the 1.0 version, all new features will be implemented on both platforms simultaneously.

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?
We don't have a product we are ready to show you for now. But we think about beta tests when the Members block will be finished.
Can you accept beta testers for the members app?
No estimations yet.

Is there an ETA on the Android version of the member app? Thanks!!!
No estimations yet.
Glad to hear you are working on the Android version. Do you have an ETA on when it will be available? We won't promote the use of the app to our members until the Android version is available
Hey guys, great to hear this has started!! Very excited. Do you have any idea on when this may be released?

It's not acceptable to release a new feature to only some of our members.

The majority of our membership uses Android based devices. Most software companies release apps for both iOS and Android simultaneously so not sure why WA chose only to release one.

We need the Android version of Wild Apricot for Members.
