FortiExplorer for Android?

On the FortiExplorer page, I see a link for the iOS app...  Is there a corresponding Android app?

Thanks

Jamie

Me to.  And with an 85% global market share I think it would be safe to assume that interest for an Android version will not be a problem. Samsung alone sold 300 million unit shipments in 2018 compared to iPhone's estimated 215 million

Any update on this? When can we expect to be able to see the Android app?

There is no Android version at this time, as we are still rapidly adding features to the iOS version. However, we are monitoring interest and may add Android in the future.

This is ridiculous - I realize Apple makes good products, but most of the people I know in this field are using Android as it affords a broader potential for power users. What do you mean you will "monitor interest?" Of course there is interest, possibly more than there is for the iOS version.

What's the status of the Android version of FortiExplorer? Must I get an iPhone just for managing Fortigate firewalls? That would be ridiculous.

 

Also, where can I find the official download for the normal Windows version of FortiExplorer? Luckily I still have a copy of the latest I could get hold on in my Onedrive.

Edit: Found the download for FortiExplorer, it's in https://support.fortinet.com/Download/, choose FortiExplorer from the list.

Registered just to jump on the bandwagon.  I do not have (or want) an iPhone.  Android version, please.

Wow. I am a network engineer for the system of two-year colleges in my state, evaluating this product for replacement of Cisco devices. This is an awfully shortsighted response. As others have intimated, excluding such a large swath of the market from easily managing your devices using your smartphone was not fitting for a "top-rated" company. I'm going to have to speak to my rep about this.

Any news?
