    Is there an App for Smartphones. HTC, Galaxy etc?

    Hi,

    I see there is a SIMS.net app for iPhone and iPad. Does anyone know if there is a SIMS application for smartphones. Android or HTC?

    Thanks
    Ellis

    We publish SIMS on Citrix and then use the Citrix Receiver for Android/iphone.

    Have a read of the comments in the below post EduGeek.net - BETT 2010 - Capita and Stone Computers Demo

    Apparently there is a android version in the works....

    Surely they'd release a windows phone app first, what with capita being a Microsoft gold partner and all?

    Yeah, cause releasing to the smallest market first always works well?

    The app the OP talks of wasn't developed directly by Capita. It was developed by GroupCall, a Capita partner.

    We don't use GroupCall and I have WP7.
    So I am truly snookered!
    Hopefully we will one day see Capita (or Schoolcomms!) themselves produce similar apps and include WP7!

    Yeah there is going to be an android/blackberry version but its in the pipeline - they said they couldn't give a rough date on it but its going to happen, just a case of when. Might be available for next Bett might not be until the year after.

    I'm not sure if capita will - they where actually promoting the app themselves on their stand - which for apps like school comms etc they don't do. But then if they see them making money they might join the market but knowing them it probly won't work very well!

    GroupCall is a company, not a product - they make a variety of SIMS related programs now, so even though you don't use their stuff at the moment, you might in the future?

    plus the bulk of the £300pa first license goes to capita by what i have heard - to cover the write back fee they charge providers.

    Seems a little bizarre, especially as you make out that people who slam SIMS/Capita are being unfair, and now you seem to be doing just that with GroupCall...

    Clearly the market is calling out for iPhone emulators on W7 and Android that would enable the app to work.
    On a more serious note, in light of the mac store, could the app be ported to work on a mac? Which would then do away with the need for using vmware/bootcamp/parallels and such like.
