Okay Folks,

I wanted to try something a little different here, so we are going on an experiment. We have an Android release coming in the next couple weeks (assuming all goes well) and I wanted to take a moment to cover the important details.

What this is: A place to discuss the upcoming features of this next Android release and to answer any questions about what it means

What this isn't: A place to bring in a big 5 gallon jug of hate-O-rade against any features that have not been included in this release. 

Assuming this experiment goes well, I plan to try and preview all releases for all platforms eventually here.

Without any further delays then...

Covenant Eyes for Android 2.0.2

  • Covenant Eyes now leverages Accessibility Services to improve reporting.
Something we have wanted to do for a long time. Essentially this means we can now cover a wide variety of applications, and their various (cough) private functionalities. 

  • Added Monitoring for the following Applications: Chrome, Home Screen Google Search, "Browser", "Internet", Facebook, (reports visited profiles) and Youtube. 
Essentially now you can use any of these applications (regardless of which is the default on your device) and Covenant Eyes is going to be able to report on them. Videos from the YouTube app will all currently report as but the actual title of the video will be in the detailed browsing log. This list is not final, and more apps will be added to be monitored over time.

  • We offer some monitoring on the Twitter App
There are some compatibility issues with older versions of Android and the Twitter app. If you are on Android 4.3 and higher we also added monitoring for Twitter.

  • This update now sets the minimum Android version requirement to 4.0
People on versions lower than 4.0 will still be able to use the current version of the app. We were unable to reduce the system requirements any lower than 4.0. Here is a neat link that shows what Android version is which

We would love to hear your feedback on both the app, and release previews in general.

Many props to the Android team for all the hard work they have done.
