This is a new realm for us. As an MFI certified company, we've mainly focused our R&D in Apple's operating systems. Honestly, we didn't think about Android at all until backers of our campaign started asking about it.
After a little research into just how large the Android market share is, Larry and I did an obligatory facepalm and started to work figuring out how to implement Geek on Android devices. With many devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, Geek works right out of the box! That's not the case on all devices, though.
We found a couple of very good resources to help you figure out if your Android device will easily connect with Geek. Here's the list:
