Introducing BattlePro for Android

Folks,

I am pleased to announce that starting today, the BattlePro app is available for Android users. You can install via Google Play, or directly with this link:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ca.army.wavemobile.battlepro

This is the very first version, so it is rough around the edges and there are likely some bug hiding within, but the core functionality is there. Please feel free to post any feedback or bug reports here. The Android version of BattlePro is very similar to the iOS version, with a few minor changes here and there. For example the Grid Finder is not available in Android, though we are looking at including it in a future release.

The app is free, but has some $0.99 in app purchases to help support the site and future development efforts. I've tried hard to make the core content accessible at no cost and restrict the in-apps to a few "extras".

Cheers
Mike

Well done, a few of my co-workers have been lusting over the iOS version for a while.

How much free space does it require?  With 190Mb free on my device, I'm getting an "Out of memory"error when I try to install.  (Not the first time I've had this issue - Android is notorious for this).

The apk (Android Package) is only about 9 Mb in size, and it expands to 19.71 Mb when installed. Must be something else going on there...

Looks good Mike, too bad you have it linked to GOOGLE PLAY to buy the extras if it wasn't for the dependency of PLAY this would run on BLACKBERRY 10 ....

Wasn't aware of that, I'll do some research, maybe I can publish a version without the Play integration for Blackberry...

BLACKBERRY 10 can run Android apps effectively if they don't have a dependency on Google Play services....

Just an FYI. It's not called "Battle Pro" in the play store. It's "Battle Procedure Aide Memoire"

Here's a direct link to the iOS version: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/battle-procedure-aide-memoire/id521444120

(And Bzz is right, the full name is Battle Procedure Aide Memoire...)

Mike,

  I really like the APP. Is there a way to purchase all of the added features without having to pay $.99 each time. Can I buy a fully outfitted package?

Thanks

Hi Charles,

That's a good idea. There is currently no way to "buy all" but I'll look into it to see if something like that might be possible. Appreciate the feedback...


Cheers
Mike

Here is evidence on the dangers of having your own devices in operations; it's related to android devices but there are similar exploits for other OSs (Posted it to the http://army.ca/forums/threads/119588/post-1469267.html#msg1469267 - delete this one if appropriate): http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/report-russia-hack-ukraine-1.3908398

A good reminder towards protecting your own and unit OPSEC.

Folks, as with BattlePro for Apple devices, all content in the Android version is now free. Testing has been limited in this build so please report any problems and I’ll do my best to fix them.

For those that find the info useful, there are options to show your support under Admin —> Support BattlePro.

As always, feedback or ideas are welcome.

Enjoy,
Mike
