Update (12 Dec 2013): Mud Map Android is now available from the Google Play Store
Over the past 12 months, we've received an increasing number of requests for Mud Map on Android. Majority of the feedback focuses on why we don't have a 4WD GPS app for Android, the most popular mobile platform in the world. The numbers speak for themselves, 72% of smartphones sold in Q4 2012 are running Android. This undoubtedly presents an excellent opportunity for Mud Map to expand our GPS navigation app to the Android platform.
The main reason in the delay of Mud Map in releasing an app for the Android platform lies in our core values as a company. At Mud Map we believe in challenging the status quo, and raising the bar. Everything we do, we do to the best of our abilities and we try to innovate with every opportunity. For the past 2 years, we have been working on exciting technologies that will revolutionise the way maps are made and used, how trips are planned and shared, and what we expect from our Off-road GPS. We believe these innovations will change the way we plan, navigate and share our adventures.
By focusing all our efforts on a single platform, our small team has been able to develop these awesome features to the highest standard. These features will first appear in the iOS app in 2013 and will provide customers with an even more user friendly, powerful and integrated experience.
Once these features are complete and working well on iOS, we plan to shift our focus to and create an Android App of the highest calibre. We did not want to release an Android App of a poor quality simply for the sake of trying to capture market share. When we do release an Android App, we want it to live up to the standard the we have set for ourselves and that people expect from us. We look forward to developing a Mud Map Android App that we can be proud of.
Thank you for all the support.
