Update on Android App:
Dear Android Users,
I am an android user and would have loved nothing more than to simultaneously release the Drift app for both IOS and Android platforms. However this was simply not feasible and I wanted to explain why.Mobile app design is a new field of development for us, in order to ensure optimal performance and minimize development time we were forced to work on one platform at a time. This prevented us from facing any new issues twice along the development process. The sole reason we decided to develop on the IOS platform first was because it generally takes longer for apps to be approved on this platform. The decision to develop the IOS app first will result in a shorter release gap between the two platforms with the longer process having been dealt with first.
Please rest assured, the IOS and Android apps are much stronger now because of this. We are working very hard and the Android app development is well under way. It will be available at the beginning of next year. Thank you very much for your patience and for the outstanding response for the Drift HD Ghost.
