We are very pleased to announce that MiniVAN for Android on Liberalist is now available at the Google Play shop (formerly Android Market) for Android OS 2.3 and higher. The free application will have all of the same canvassing features and conveniences of the iPhone/iPad MiniVAN version and is available for Android tablets and phone.
Before exploring the new application, don’t forget to ‘send’ a list to yourself from Liberalist or to have a list ‘sent’ to you. See this guide for more information: http://liberalist.liberal.ca/canvip/
Once downloaded, MiniVAN for Android will ask you to enter a URL and login credentials. Simply use the my.liberalist.ca URL and the user name and password you normally enter to access the full Liberalist system.
When you’re in Liberalist, assigning canvass lists to your volunteers’ smart phones and accepting the data back into Liberalist from the MiniVAN app will look the same regardless of whether your volunteers use an Apple product or an Android tool.
Please note: When you are canvassing on your Android device, you may notice a few cosmetic differences from the MiniVAN application on Apple products. For example, for some devices, you’ll need to select the menu options in order to sync lists. And following Android standards, users can always undo an action with the back button.
