Crestron Apps For Android On the Way
Crestron has touted its iPhone/iPad interface as the best of its kind, with Apple in June naming it the top application in the industry. Now a similar product is headed beyond Apple- to Android.
At CEDIA Expo Thursday, Crestron demonstrated a very similar version of the application on a variety of Android devices, including Samsung's Galaxy phones and Galaxy Tab, as well as the Dell Streak. The app has not yet been released, but those interested are invited to sign up for a beta team.
Chris Martinez of Samsung said that advantages of the Android platform, for Crestron and beyond in the home control space, include quick development times for apps, multitasking capability and widget support.
