    I thought so, too. I'm sure somebody said 1st week of November.

    Would be really good to get this thing working properly on Android - such a HUGE market :)

    Maybe by "next week in our public beta" in the Nov 2nd message, he meant next month. The lack of updates is pretty frustrating.

    Waiting for my Freefly Movi unit to arrive but grabbed the GooglePlay beta app to have a play around.

    Noticed it's only v1.0.5 whereas the website Compatability chart mentions v1.1, am I missing something?

    Also noticed it doesn't have 4K60 as an option for the Note9? Will this be addressed as FilmicPro can record in high bitrate 4K60 so hopefully Movi can do the same?

    Finally, any plans for a flat colour profile setting? (flat/log). I did read a thread somewhere suggesting that the Filmic ProLOG profile was a fake software fudge and wasn't really a flat profile at all, not sure if this is true, but any way of getting a less baked in recording would be awesome.

    Thanks for the development guys, hopefully the Android version can catch up fast, especially given some of the awesome cameras available on Pixel/Samsung etc!

    We want each release to be as solid as possible, but we should have communicated the schedule slip better. With almost every Android device requiring special development treatment, it's a challenge to keep up the pace. We appreciate the wait and support!

    We are in the final stages of approval to release the v1.1 release of the beta app. Keep an eye out for the update notification!

    Hello All,

    Movi app for Android Beta 1.1 is now available through Google Play.

    Beta 1.1 introduces all the Movi shooting methods to Android. That said, Movilapse is still not available for select Samsung devices (we're working on it!), and we're still confronting some manufacturer restrictions regarding FPS and recording resolution. If you want to check out specifics for your device, there's a chart at gomovi.com/compatibility

    Remember, this is still a beta--we're still squashing some bugs and looking for more so please continue to share your feedback on the application here, the submission forum and through Google Play!

    Cheers!

    You won't be able to access the beta unless you enroll in the program. You can enroll in the beta program here!

    Great new thanks. Fingers crossed you can get 4K60 from the Samsung Note 9, either that or somehow work with FilmicPRO as those guys seem to have figured it out :) Cheers.

    Im shocked right now. Literally within 60 secs of reading this thread I realized (like others before me) I had downloaded the wrong andriod app. Ive had my movi freefly for 3 months and have been trying to set it up off and on since. Signing up for the forum literally paid of the next day give or take plus 120 secs. You gotta love an engaged community! Im very excited for what happens next.

    @Banji Oyewole Thanks and I'm enjoying the new app update. All is going well so far on the Note 9, but as I mentioned, 4K60 is an absolute MUST DO guys, please can you focus on this.....Or even allow Movi app to work alongside FilmicPro or something? Before I'm tempted to jump to an Osmo Pocket! ;) (that smooth 4K slomo!)

    Hi i just got my Movi a week ago having tried all the rest Osmo and Zhiyun this is far the best .I am on android Samsung S8 plus and can see i cant do 4k at the moment but love this thing. In echo mode i get some unpredictable results up and down presets go up then down back to up.They same as A-B mode.Then the focus mode doesn't seem to work sometimes i flip back to 1080 then back to 3k for it to focus.Great product that will only get better
