Check out the Viber for Android Beta Review
It seems that the public beta will be available soon. Viber tweeted that the Android Beta version will be available in some two weeks.
Why Viber for Android is so late?
Public beta was initially planed for end of the February. Latter, it was moved to March and after that, “bang!”. It just snapped, and postponed android beta period to an unknown.
Android is a good platform, but it is stretched much more than iOS is. Android is working on different hardware which is made by different manufacturers. That usually produces problems. Especially if you are trying to optimize application performance and work with low level functionality.
It means that if you are trying to make an excellent application for Android, you’ll have to spend much more time for testing it and adjusting it for different devices.
Lets hope this time it is for real
