Okay, so I'm very interested in getting the security key generator for mobile phone, and I notice you only support apple products. Could you please make the same service available to Android users?

Or is there something I have missed, and it's actually available already?

I agree with the above. I own an android phone. Why do we get short changed because we dont own apple products.

They are working on both a Blackberry and Android authenticator.

I agree with the OP. Given that Android is being used by more Americans (can't speak for other countries) per comScore's October Mobile Subscriber Report (http://www.comscore.com/Press_Events...r_Market_Share), I see no reason why the iPhone app would have been released first... or at least in tangent with an Android app. The October statistics show a 46.3% market share for Google's OS and only 28.1% for Apple's.

Heh. Irony at its best. We have a security app only on iPhone, and a game client only on Windows.

The irony is putting a security application on an iPhone or Android.

I was typing up so snazzy comeback/remark but then I got the BSOD and didn't feel like typing it all over again. But on a more serious note, I agree with the need for the Android App. Security apps are becoming more and more common so why they didn't work on/release the app on all platforms at once is beyond me. Looking forward to the app.

The irony is that the one group that doesn't get it first seems to complain how they are getting "slighted" because they don't have one yet. I saw the exact opposite situation when Rift came out with its authenticator: the Android version came out a couple weeks before the iPhone version did, and iPhone users were up-in-arms about how unfair it was they didn't get an authenticator.

How is that ironic?

Because I'm seeing the exact same arguments from the Android users here that the iPhone users were using when Rift's Android authenticator was first available.
