Joe Oppegaard and the FVM apps development team have been working hard lately to broaden the accessibility of the FVM apps on the wide array of Android devices (phones and tablets) available in the market today. While the overall number of devices (and configurations) available is slippery, because of the speed at which those numbers change (more than 1 million Android devices are activated every day, around the world), it is significant to note that the FVM apps now are accessible and functional (although not necessarily perfectly designed) for 2,424 Android formats at this point, according to an accessibility report Joe recently ran. We will use that as a baseline for future Android development, hoping to bring in as many devices as possible.
More interesting Android developer information can be found here (about platform versions) and here (a broad overview of Android).

Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)
This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.
