Good morning everybody!
I don’t usually post on our blog because I usually don’t have anything interesting to say, but Walter told me people were asking about this so I figured I would post a message. Here we go:
I am pleased to announce that we have secured a development partner and the funding we need to build an Android version of Quick Key Mobile.
The Android development project is scheduled to begin on October 6th, and be released to our Android beta testers on or around November 21st. We plan to release the free Android version of Quick Key Mobile to the public 1-2 weeks after we start beta testing.
Our partner in the Android project is Ki Teknology, an app developer company run by my good friend (and incredible all-around awesome person) Martin Lewit. Martin is from Argentina and his company is based in Santiago, Chile. So our Android project is an international affair, which I think is quite apropos given the global reach of the Android platform.
Funding for the project is coming from a small group of dedicated angel investors, who want to see Quick Key Mobile’s technology made available to as many people as possible, around the world.
One more thing: we have hired an AMAZING designer to re-design all of our apps, including the Web app, our iOS app, and of course the Android app. For all Quick Key’s usefulness, one thing it has always lacked was a user-friendly design. Actually it’s more accurate to say Quick Key never had a design. We just built the functionality and added some buttons. Well, no more!!
We have begun the process of taking all of your feedback and putting it into brand-new designs across our entire platform. The Android app will be the first platform designed from the ground-up using our new process, which starts with expertly-crafted UX/UI design. I hope you like it when it’s done.
If you want to get early access to the Android app by becoming a beta tester for Android, please ping Walter on Twitter @4_teachers
