Hideaway for Android

Mon Jul 08, 2019 5:10 am

Do you have any plans for an Android version? My specific use would be on Nvidea Shield.

It's definitely on our horizon in the near future as there's lots of potential there.

Should know more tomorrow, with some more firm dates as we're meeting about it.

Still can't give an estimated date yet sorry, we're still proving and building out various aspects of it since it's so different to other VPNs. Hopefully we can have an alpha/beta version towards the end of the month

Thanks for the update. If you need any help with beta testing etc. I would be happy to help. I have several Android products including Samsung galaxy s9+ phone, Galaxy s6 Tablet, and Android devices on my TV - Nvidia Shield, Amazon Firestick and Roku.

That's great thanks. We'd certainly want to test it on all those (and not having them ourselves). Itching to get it to test myself.

We've been on holiday for the last 2 weeks (since it's summer over here), but all our tests are working - meaning we haven't run in to any issues yet. This means hopefully we can put it together pretty quickly. Will have some more updates end of next week.

Sorry, dropped the ball in reporting anything. At the moment, still working through things - found a few issues which we're working through. It's been quite complicated in that we've had to find ways to do the same thing in Java (which Android uses as a coding language) as we've already done on the desktop (in C++) as Java is limited in some aspects. We are getting there though.

Just checking to see if there is any further progress. I found the PC version excellent but if I purchased it I would still need another VPN for my Android tablet, Nvidia Shield etc.

Hi, it's taking a bit longer than expected and we're trying to solve a hard part which might take a month, then it's adding the user interface. So it might be a couple of months away still
