With the new version of the Crawler going out to the stores, I thought it might be helpful to shine some light on all the versions that are available.
Store Versions: The most current version is now up on the Apple App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon App Store. These versions are built on SDK’s that generally require newer devices. (iOS 8 and Android 4.0 or better).
Android Sideload Versions: I also make the Crawler available as a download from my website in three versions. You can download the same version that is in the stores. You can also download a legacy version that has all the functionality of the new version, but is built on older SDK’s that should let it work on older devices. Finally there is an Old Legacy version that doesn’t have the latest features, but might work on the oldest of devices. 🙂
Web Version: This version can be access from your browser. Unfortunately, because of Flash restrictions, it can’t access the campaign data features. Other than that it works like any other version. (Also quickly added a compact version for smaller screens)
Windows Desktop Version: I’ve quickly whipped out a couple of windows executables on a whim. They use goofy Air installers, and Windows will squawk and try to keep you from installing them because the apps are unsigned. So you’ll have to trust me. On the plus side, the desktop version is super quick, and lets you access your campaign data, something the web version can’t do. The two version are ‘normal’ size, and a smaller version for folks on tiny laptops.
Everything is available on my site. I hope folks find the various versions useful. Time to go to bed. 🙂
