Visiting your link and searching the page for the word "Android" brings up 0.

I scoured the images looking for my familiar android task bar too.

It is on the left side of the screen though as "Droid" which is a brand of phone, not OS. just saying

It is on the NovaGear info page. What should we put instead of "Droid"---we can certainly change this to make it more understandable. We can probably have the edit done by tomorrow; didn't realize it would be confusing We included the Android update info when posters on our FaceBook page made the suggestion; when available we will post a link.

Just saying, Droid is a brand of phone, Android is the operating system used by many phones. Its a minor mistake, but what I did when I went to the page was Ctrl-F and searched for Android which returned 0 results.

It probably would have been more clear in a different location.

Not that its hard to understand once its noticed, but it didn't stand out to me either.

If the other guy didn't ask about Android I would have too because I missed it.

My email to marketing (change Droid to Android) is en route as I type....

We had 20 comments on our FB page that took us to task re: no Android version.

Actually, the name "Droid" is licensed by Verizon for any brand of Android based phones that they sell. No other carrier has a "Droid", like Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Incredible, etc.

I missed the text on the left hand side of Novak's page as well. I read all of the other text and didn't see Android mentioned.

We appreciate all feed back---our customers have many good ideas. We do want feedback on this Apple version, so we can make whatever changes are necessary before offering a separate Android "app".

An in-app email feature lets users email and questions, suggestions or comments to Novak.
