I'm planning to pick up a Samsung Galaxy S II this weekend, my first Android smart phone, which is expected to be eligible for Google's "ice cream sandwich" soon. Will the Families app be compatible with the OS upgrade?

Sue - We have tested Families on the Android 4.0 emulator, so don’t expect any problems with the Galaxy.

I have a NOOK. Is the families app compatible?

When will this be available for windows 7 phones?

Regarding the Nook, here is the response I received from Malcolm Green, the developer of Families:

See http://www.telgen.co.uk/families/forum/showthread.php?tid=4880. Note, however, that there are some issues with the latest Nook version 1.4.1. I’m working on getting Families into the Nook App Store....

Svein - I haven't heard anything about Families for Windows 7 phones. Has anyone else?

I have been using Families in sync with PC laptop and netbook for over a year now! Great, irreplaceable app!! Instructions are poor, but with a little (a lot) of working at it, it really is quite simple to do. Just wish "Families" had better, more precise detailed instructions. I'm sure the April webinar will help.

I have a Blackberry Playbook.Can I download the Families app to it?

Will this program work with a Kindle Fire?

I have a NOOK Color. Will Legacy run on that tablet?

Mel - Yes, Families will run on the NOOK Color. You'll need to follow a few extra steps in order to be able to install third party (i.e. non B&N) apps (but note that this does NOT require the device to be rooted). See the following link for details:

Glade - I don't know about the Kindle Fire - you might ask on the Families Forums at http://www.telgen.co.uk/families/forum/

Will this work on a Sony eBook Reader and how? Will it work on a Rim Playbook? Thanks. Hope so - good excuse to buy one :)

For questions about the compatibility of all of the different devices, probably go to the Families forums at http://www.telgen.co.uk/families/forum/

I've been using Families on my Galaxy Tab 7.0 since last September's Legacy Cruise. I LOVE being able to carry all my files with me in one powerful, but tiny package. Please offer the webinar online after the live broadcast for those of us unable to leave work to catch it live!

Does Families work on the iphone?

Peggy - yes, Families works on the iPhone.

Well, will this work on my Apple computer?

Juanima - the Families app works on the iDevices. Legacy is not written for the Mac but works well if you Mac also has Windows.
