Ladies and gentlemen, Dashlane for Android V1.0 has arrived! Get it for free on Google Play now:
It’s been an interesting ride — developing an app from scratch always is. We had to make lots of choices about what the app will support in V1.0, as well as lots of UX choices as to how to replicate Dashlane in the mobile world while still giving the app a real “Android look and feel.”
What’s in Dashlane for Android 1.0:
- Access to your most important data, such as your contact info, ID’s, web accounts
- Your web account info (logins and passwords) are easily accessed by going straight to the website, or by using the copy/paste functionality
- Your data is safely stored in an AES-256 locally-encrypted database which uses the same encryption engine as the desktop app
- A pincode lock so you can use a pincode for easy access — rather than your longer, more difficult Master Password — for easy access if your account is already loaded on your device
So what’s next to come? Well, building V1.0 (now V1.0.1) has been a fun experience, but the journey has just begun! Next we’ll bring account creation to the Android platform, so that users can create Dashlane accounts directly from our Android client. We also plan on bringing the full browser experience, meaning full auto-fill support to Android so that you can start experiencing the “life in the Dashlane.”
The design and usability of the app is very important to us, so we’ll try to unify the way you work on the mobile platforms, and bring it closer to the frictionless experienceusers enjoy with Dashlane on desktop, so for the next Android release we’ll work hard to make sure you can pay more attention to the important things and let Dashlane do the heavy lifting directly from your Android device.
And on that note, I’ll be getting back to work now, and start planning for the next milestone for our mobile team. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy our firstborn Android app. And please share your feedback and questions with us!
