      Jay, thanks for the comment, there are restrictions on Android devices to do with screen size, apologies if this does not work on your device.

    Hi Al,

    I upgraded to the new version for the iPad. After selecting all and downloading all the material on that page, after a shortwhile errors keep popping up. It appears that I can only download about four items at a time.

    An area for improvement. We know have the ability to select all, but you have to select an item first before the select all option is revealed. Would like to see an option to select all in the first instance.

    While the Kindle is an Android variant – its different enough to make installing standard Google Apps a nightmare, Any info on when (and if) a Kindle App will release…?
    View and vCops info would also be nice

    Would it be horribly difficult to include a “minimum tablet requirement” section on this page? There are LOTS of questions about why the app will not work on phones/etc., and I believe a small blurb about what is required would be awesome!

    Oh, and is there any Windows8 tablet support?
