    No android app is the main reason why I won't purchase the training app. Why should android users have to suffer waiting for an app when it's got the most market share in the world.

    Wow, just wow. No Android App?! I get why you are going for an app. Having your content pirated is no fun for you or your legitimate users but if you're going to restrict access to an app basis, pretty please make it available on all common platforms.

    Hello Everyone,

    We don't have plans for Android at the moment. We are going to look at the Android App in 2017 and see what it is going to take to make that happen. The Android marketplace is complicated for us. With a video streaming service and the wide variety of Android devices and screen sizes in their ecosystem, it is the equivalent of building 2 to 3 separate Apps.

    I bought 8 of your video and I enjoyed it. You won me as a customer. Now, I cannot buy anymore of your video which is fine, we don't stop progress but...no android app. I don't you know if you realize the message you are sending me? (Sorry men you are not important enough for us, go somewhere else.)

    Very bad calculation my friend. The Android app may take more effort, but there's more customer into it.

    Before canceling video, make sure we can get to the app?

    When customer will be gone, don't think they'll come back after you let them down.

    I came looking to buy more vids to use with Trainer Road to find this is no longer possible and then to find out there's no support for Android in this new "business model" is a bit disappointing in this day and age.
    Source a better developer if you're being told to make 2-3 versions of the app to cover different screens... and follow the Android development guidelines from Google.
    I look forward to hearing a release date for a Sufferfest Android app soon :)

    Hello Matt, we really, really want to make an Android App.  There are budgetary constraints and things like that we have to overcome first.  Once we start indoctrinating and introducing more people into Sufferlandrian we will get started.  Spread the word!  When we have a Sufferlandrian Army, there will be no stopping us.

    Just saw the Roku app recently and was excited to try it, but then realized it requested payment without an option for current Sufferlandrians to login, so I came here looking for a work around. Can I also assume that if I already have the app via Mac/iOS that I can't use the Roku app without paying for it separately? Is there some kind of code you can send me to access this?  Love the app, it has allowed me to actually enjoy riding the trainner ; ) A little disappointed to hear the Roku version will be going away and that I can't seem to use it.  Let me know what options I have thanks.

    That is correct John.  When we hit a certain subscription number on the Roku App we will be deprecating it.  It was a primary driver of building our own app.  This way we have more control over our product.
