Android has quickly become a major distribution channel for consumer-based applications, and most recently for the Mobile Resource Management industry. Having a single platform that spans all major wireless carriers on a large, and growing, number of handsets is an exciting proposition for Actsoft.
TAMPA, FL (Vocus) July 14, 2010
Actsoft Inc.® makers of GPS-based wireless software applications for any business with mobile personnel and assets, announced today that their application has successfully undergone all development and testing necessary to support the Android operating system.
Android is Google's operating system for mobile devices. It is a competitor to the Symbian platform, Apple's iOS for the iPhone and Microsoft's Windows Mobile for mobile devices. Relatively new, the Android operating system is a best-seller for all major wireless carriers. Android is quickly becoming one of the most popular operating systems in the US, currently posting about 28 percent of all US sales.
All Android devices have a touch screen with an impressive screen size and high quality resolution. With this offering, Actsoft also launched three compelling Android-specific features. The touch screen enables signature capture directly on the device, using just the end user’s finger to sign for verification purposes. Also, Android camera capabilities support barcode scanning. In addition to signature capture and barcode scanning, Voice-to-Text easily fields data entry by simply speaking into the device. No additional hardware is required.
“Android has quickly become a major distribution channel for consumer-based applications, and most recently for the Mobile Resource Management industry. Having a single platform that spans all major wireless carriers on a large, and growing, number of handsets is an exciting proposition for Actsoft.” states Eric Rabinovitz, Actsoft VP of Operations.
