We hear you!
To our future Android users,
We understand there is a growing list of Android users very patiently waiting for the Android app to be available. We understand your frustration and your desire to monitor your water with ease.
Tip: Sign up for early access list by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Android Early Access".
Why is it taking so long?
While we have been a business for many years we are still a smaller company that only launched to the public in November of 2020. Our goal is to work closely with our users to refine and re-launch the iOS app as a scalable, robust solution that could support the majority of our user’s needs.
To avoid duplicating our software development needs in the early stages, we chose to focus on iOS. Once our bluebot iOS app was confirmed stable and to offer the functionality that our customers require, we turned our focus to the Android application. Our intention was to streamline the Android development (allowing our Android waitlist users to be the first early access group to help us test), and be able to provide a more refined solution as Android V1.
Essentially, we wanted to make it worth the wait instead of risking two early-stage apps missing the mark for our customers.
We are currently on track to release a bare minimum of an Android commissioning app late 2021. If the commissioning-only version is released publicly, data management can be handled from the web portal until the full Android version is made public.
How can you get bluebot now?
If you are in need of immediate access to bluebot and you are willing to consider a workaround, some of our customers have opted to go this route (superstars!). If you are able to acquire an iOS device (iPhone or iPad) from a friend or an inexpensive used device on your preferred marketplace, you can complete installation from that device, utilize your Android phone number for the account (where you'll receive SMS notifications), and we can provide access to the web portal for ongoing data management until the Android app is released. If you'd like to go that route, please contact us!
Thank you sincerely for your overwhelming interest and compassionate support for bluebot.
