    Hello and thanks so much for sharing this request. We have not built an Android app yet because our mobile app for iPad and iPhone is being developed reusing our macOS code base. Developing an Android app would require a whole new codebase and architecture, which is unfortunately very difficult with our current set of resources. However, that doesn't mean we aren’t listening!Would you like to share more about your mobile workflow? How / when would you use our mobile app if it was available for Android?

    Well, times like now, in the summer with 30°C is when i would prefer leaving the laptop at home and using the phone in the field. Quick check of how the shots really look like and if possible or required by my clients, quick edit and export.
    generally if i am on the move, i would prefer my phone.
    Hope that clears it up. Feel free to follow up on any questions.

     

    P.S. even though ios is more stable and Apple preffered as a desktop enviroment, please do not forget Android still has 71% market share against 21% of ios. .

    i do sure hope you will eventually find the resources to develop it. it may/could even be one of the greatest main mobile apps for editing. I believe in y'all.

    Thank you so much for the feedback! What type of photography are you into?

    For what it's worth, I would also like to see support for the Android tablets. Right now, I'm tempted to fork out the money for an iPad, but would prefer to hold off until C1 for my galaxy tablet comes along.  Any hope of that ever happening?

    Hello Pam Anders! We have not made the decision to build an app for Android yet, and once we do, we will need sometime to make it a reality. I don't see this happening in the next few months but we will keep you posted. Care to share a few words about your workflow and use case? How do you imagine yourself using the app?

    Hi Evi, as I see you are interested in workflows, can you please tell me how can I move in the browser to the images which were shot right before and right after image123.raw?

    It was possible to put image123.raw into the search box of the browser, then this image was filtered. Then, remove the string from the searc box and all images in the collection would show again, but still the image123.raw would be visible in the browser. 

    This was killed in either 15.3 or 15.4 and fully killed (some important) part of my workflow. see #172712 including videos to illustrate the issue I uploaded several months ago.

    There is another regression defect (#172703) I reported which also kills another part of my workflow. I really wonder why you (company) silently kill customers workflow and talk about new stuff at the same time.

    I appreciate new stuff but don't just forget your existing customers and features, don't let quality go down further.

    Thanks.

    BeO Evi is the product manager for Capture One Mobile so she won't be able to help you with specific bugs on Capture One Pro, or any support related requests.

    It's probably best to pick up the conversation with the support agent you were connected with and carry on the support request, or create a new one, if the numbers you're referring to are indeed support requests.

    Or you could always post in the relevant topic and see if anyone else has had their workflow affected. :)

    Thanks Jack.

    The forum feels kind of deserted, not very active, so even if quite a few of the 250k users (I read this number somewhere, not sure it is right and if they are all still actively using C1) are affected by the issues I have (indeed) reported I doubt I get much feedback here. (In fact only one or two have replied to me after I created the respective topic).

    I did not know that Evi is a dedicated product manager for the mobile app. I guess I wanted to make a point and foster awareness in the product management that at least one customer is expecting that regression defects will be resolved, even with some priority.

    Conversation with the support agent
    This unfortunately stopped when I was periodically asking for the (then) current status. I even created videos as requested to illustrate one of the issues, which means I invested quite some time, and I can tell you that I am very disappointed that the ressources you obviously put on defects and software quality is subpar and does not correspond with your price increases and policy changes in disfavor of your perpetual licence customers. One should expect the quality rises too, not the opposite.

    Regards
    BeO

    I want to voice my support for an Android version of C1 Mobile.

    With my biggest client being a competitor with Apple, I don't think pulling out an iOS device during a shoot would be wise.

    Thank you,

    Stephen Schmitt

    Hey Stephen Schmitt, I understand your struggles...what are you using now when you go to a shoot with them? Unfortunately building an Android version is not in our immediate plans so we won't release something in 2024. Having said that, getting more votes and requests will help us prioritize higher and re-evaluate this decision.

    Hello Evi,

    We shoot tethered to the desktop, and most of the time that is all I need. It would just be nice to have the option to use one of my client's products when something lighter is needed.

    Had the same issue with Capture One Pilot being iOS only. Would have been nice to have one of their tablets to review images while we were shooting.

    Count me as another customer who will NEVER own an Apple phone or tablet and already owns an Android phone and tablet.

    Better yet, just shoot out a quick dialog box with a question next time you update C1. Just ask the people if they would actually want and use the android version. If the numbers are low, just let it die, I guess.

    hehe, that would be interesting but we should do it for everything we are thinking about doing, to have a decent benchmark.

    I would also be very interested in a mobile version for android. I frequently transfer photos directly to my phone to share with friends and family and a simplified version to control the white balance, HDR settings, etc. would totally suit my purpose.

    I'll put my hand up for an Android version. Would be nice not to need the laptop for quick edits and simple tasks without having to either wait till I get home, or have to use a different app. Apple isn't the leader of the pack anymore, thanks for listening!

    Thank you Anthony Knowlton! Would you go for a tablet or a phone? Can you share a few words about your workflow?

    I am also for Android version. I'm not going back to Apple. The missing APK is your weakness compared to Lightroom. :(
