Computer/Internet Issues & TroubleshootingAnyone with questions about the terribly complex world of computers or the internet should try here. We will also try and help with troubleshooting any technical problems you may have with the forums.
What part of the world, or worldwide ? IFR, VFR or both ?
Do you need something quality like Jepp with updates etc. for actual briefing, or will you be cross-referencing to a non-Android recognised source and just want the Android app for quick research of potential ideas ?
Something like Hilton WingX or AirWX perhaps ? Or if you're in the US, one of the FAA AeronNav digital products ?
If you simply want to read Jepp charts and text on your Android phone/table, you really don't need an official Jepp app. Plenty of freeware and payware PDF readers will do the job if you can get the charts in PDF format.
To do things legally, get your airline's IT or dispatch department to "print" the charts as packs from JeppView to a PDF file. That's right, you can "print" your charts so they automatically save as PDF files. Many ways to do this, CutePDF Printer is one.
Providing these charts are used by the airline employees and updated when changes occur, there is nothing illegal about this, unlike the many "cracked" Jepp installations on iPads out there.

for some (marketing?) reason only officially supported on Galaxy Samsung Tablets 8.9'' and 10.1'' - not sure why; my Galaxy S2 phone resolution is 1280x720, 8.9'' tablet's is 1280x800 - so it cannot be that...
I didn't try it, but obviously you need a Jeppesen subscription...
Hello, I've a subscription were I get very month the package (by DVD) tu update my PC. Some other pilots use to update their ipad with this package. Do you know if I can use the same package to update my Android, or it is a new subscription?
Got told AFTER I purchased electronic Jepp charts that their app does not work with the latest android programme, Jelly Bean. Worst thing was they told me there was nothing coming in the near future to deal with this issue either. There are basically 2 major operating systems for Tabs, Android and Apple, Jeppesen have really dropped the ball on this one. BTW, if anyone has any ideas on how to get Jepps onto my Galaxy tab 2, would be greatly appreciated.
