Android

So, there are a few plugins I would really like to see implemented into the Android app, such as Google earth. Is there a time frame that we can expect a lot of the windows plugins applied to the Android version.

Re: Android

Why not be a bit more open about these matters ?
AFAIK
* Most plugins have been designed by individuals who are not members of the OpenCpn crew.
* Porting OpenCpn to Android was a controversial decision.
* Many pluging designers seem either reluctant to undertake the complete rewriting that is necessary, or are opposed to their plugin having something to do with Google
* It is a fact that few plugins (apart from Dashboard and Grib present from the start) have been added since last october (Squiddio, Chart downloader, WMM)
* It seems to me unlikely that this situation will change in the near future
I may be mistaken on all these counts, hence AFAIK...

The reason is so that all ANDROID O information is in one convenient place. This is for the convenience of ALL ANDROID O users!

To respond or answer here would not help all Android O Users.

SailorF54, porting to Android was not controversial, everyone knew it was the right thing to do, but the work fell on a few skilled stalwart individuals. Bdbcat, Sean, Pavel and perhaps some others.

O supports many platforms, including Android. That's a lot of work, all volunteered, and it all takes time, patience and dedication. I am sure everyone, including plugin programmers would like it if there were more plugins for Android. There is not enough time to do it all at once. I hope that helps, so post in the right forum please. Thanks.
