Test the new Instructables Android App!

Picture of

Hey Everyone!

We are wrapping up development on our android app and we want you to become a part of the fun!

If you are interested in getting involved, email me at greggawatt@instructables.com with your android version, your instructables username and how you intend to use the app.

We want to get information on to make the app better for our authors and this is the perfect way to do so.

I wish this would be released for kindle fire

Since the android app it's in the play store now, I gave it a try. So far it looks very nice, and if you are just browsing it's absolutly great.
But for writing a ible I would like to have some more features like bulk-adding pics (navigating trough subfolders is a pain) or autosave (lost my ible after switching to another app by accident and the reopening the ible-app again).
But I will stick to it for shure!

A way to pull drafts I created online down to my android device would also be great, so I dont need to be online for working on and saving my ible

Hey I have to ask this... All i have is a Kindle Fire. All it supports is the Amazon App Store. Will instructables eventually be there too? Thanks

I have been seeing a LOT of this happening.....double posts.....odd and probably not the fault of the one posting.

bwrussell (author)Goodhart2013-01-24

If you hit the "Post" button multiple times before it goes away then it posts multiple times. Happened to be the other day.

Goodhart (author)bwrussell2013-01-24

Yes, but I don't recall doing that.

I can't wait for this. The only other alternative on the Play Store is.... not adequate.

Apple keeps a pretty tight leash on their contributing developers, from what I've read. You can't get anything except through the App Store, and if a developer tries to let something out before it's been "approved," they're basically screwed for life.

The irony with respect to that famous Macintosh commercial is delicious, isn't it?

You hit the nail on the head! but i can tell you, you'll be seeing the iphone app live in the app store very soon after the first of the year.

That's good to hear because I would love to create and view Instructables on my iPad! I haven't seen the app up yet.

Wouldn't it make sense to describe what the app can do, before asking people how they intend to use it ?

ElvenChild (author)2012-12-18

As annoying as the can be at times, I always thought apple started a revolution.

ssleeper (author)2012-12-18

I would be interested in testing for you. I don't always have access to a computer and would like to start doing instructables. Doing them on my phone would work great since I take all my pics on my phone. I don't know what operating system my Samsung Fascinate is. My email is serenityfab@gmail.com
Thank you.

One can always use TestFlight or similar services to distribute and beta test iOS apps https://testflightapp.com/
