Opening the Android Floodgates

By Vampr

I know we’ve been a little quiet on the blog front lately…

Well, after months and months of building and testing with some very smart and generous Android peeps, we’re finally ready to release our Android Beta candidate into the wild — and you can download it right now:


We didn’t need a call to Einstein to figure out that a pile of the world’s musicians are on Android and if Vampr was ever going to be a truly global opportunity to connect, then we needed to be on Android too — it feels like the other half of the band have finally arrived.

(Shout out to Product Hunt also for featuring the Beta, helping to kick things off!)

Vampr has already turned up on users’ phones in 76 countries, with all types of musicians on the app — from bedroom strummers to the bigwigs of the industry and of course the odd oboist or two. Borderless access to the whole totem pole of musicians and industry everywhere has always been our aim, and if Vampr can help get passionate and talented musicians collaborating then we’re on the way to mission accomplished.

While we were getting the Android version of Vampr ready it gave us an opportunity to fine-tune all the moving parts of the app. Our iOS users had a lot to say about what was good and what annoyed the living hell out of them so we got deep with the deep stuff — algorithms etc — and also redesigned the eye candy and introduced some new features to make the app a whole lot easier to use, with ever better chances of making a connection.

In celebration of the release of Vampr for Android (Beta), we’ve been at SXSW all week promoting the app, with some pretty nice prizes being handed out and our favourite piece of merch, THE VAMPR GUITAR PICK!

If you see us there, please come and say hello — we’d love to meet you all.

To end, we’d just like to ask you please send us through as much feedback as possible — the good, the bad, the damn right ugly. We know this release is far from perfect, but we wanted it in your hands so we can learn more about what to keep and what to throw in the trash and never speak of again. We continue to work on improving it everyday, so come on, keep us in the loop and here’s hoping you find a lot to love already.

We’re looking forward to seeing this community of ours continue to thrive, collaborate, create and Play Together ✌️️
