Seriouly guys, everyone I know has switched to the Samsung Galaxy S4. Apple is so 2012. Where's the Android app?

My trusty Tranzport is dying - would love to see the android version of iC Pro!

It hasn't been abandoned, has it?

I kind of agree...I'm an iPhone 5 and iPad user but my son has the Galaxy S4 and that thing is really amazing. The iPad is a big thing for me but the phone I really just use as a phone. The S4 can almost replace the iPad except for its size in my view and...it's a phone

The issue at hand is latency. Until Steinberg find a workable solution, we're in for a long wait

I'm on Android so I haven't tried this of course;

What latency are you referring to?

I've been using TouchDAW for a couple of years now, on an HTC Desire and now on a Galaxy S3 and have had zero issues with latency on either phones or Android versions.

What you are referring to is latency relating to virtual instruments which might be an issue on Android devices, but who in their right mind uses virtual instruments on a tablet/smartphone anyway? They are gimmicks at best.

Exactly, OSC and TouchDAW work ok, other than they are not well supported by the devs. But, what does work, does not suffer from latency, just crappy ported coding. Now, I know how the Apple folks felt after all those years of having crappy windows ports.

The only latency worth discussing gents and ladies. :D
Audio latency. Time between making a change at the interface level and observing a sound at the output. Different Android products have additional interface layers as well... Samsung is not exactly Sony, nor is HTC = LG or Motorola

why do we care about audio latency? We just want Cubase iC to move some knobs and buttons around :D

You are incorrect, this application is a control application. No audio involved. As a control surface audio latency doesn't enter the picture. As has been stated numerous times, we are using apps that do this already WITH CUBASE ON ANDROID.

For the record, latency issues in Android were fixed with late ICS updates (since 4.0.3 or 4.0.4.) If your tablet has an older OS, latency will probably be an issue. If the OS is 4.0.4 or newer, no problem.

And yes, as others have pointed out, it's a moot point anyway, because audio is NOT involved here.

I'll just be happy to have transport controls on my Nexus-7 to control Nuendo.

I think you should give some info on this, since it´s moved over half year ahead from the original promised release..
Say at least, will it be this year, I mean honestly?

Yeah - still no info? Has it been abandoned?

No sorry, they were not fixed, except in fanboi land perhaps, take a look at the Android audio list archives for verification, there is still not a constraint model available to Android developers

But that has no bearing on a control app like iC Pro

All I want are the transport controls. Is that so hard to do for Android? Please Steinberg, do release an Android app asap.

I don't think that this would be enough for most people. Apple has raised the bar a lot with the latest remote app for Logic and they even give it away for free. The app is of course only available for iOS because it's an Apple product.

But Cubase is dual platform and it's fatal to ignore Android on the long run because it is Android, what people really use outside the minuscule but verbose Apple universe.

Currently Android is heading towards a market share of 80% on the smartphone market and 70% on the tablet market and the numbers grow fast day by day. And the OS not restricted to phones or tablets. Android works fine on many TVs, fridges, printers, watches etc. from many different vendors.

It would be great to use a cheap TV as a giant meterbridge for the mixer or just tap on the wrist to remote control Cubase. The ideas are endless and this is not something for a distant future, it could be real already now.

But for this we need a remote app first.

The main problem I see for the app is a possible veto from Steinberg's hardware department. A cheap Android tablet with iC pro would be a lot less than their current hardware controllers and it would offer a lot more functionality (wireless, switchable views etc). And selling hardware is a good source of income while a software product may not be as secure.

Hello guys,

We have not forgotten you!
But during the development we have faced some unforeseen problems so we had to postpone the launch to Q3. As soon as there is more information available I will post another update.
Best regards,

Soooo.... It´s another Q yet...

Dear customers,
As you know we've been providing iOS apps for some time now. And rightfully so, many of you have been asking us to offer Android apps as well. Since we released our remote control app, Cubase iC Pro, for iPhone and iPads in January of this year we've also been keen to release Cubase iC Pro for Android. Meanwhile, we've taken up the work on this project, but have come across several hurdles along the way. This means it might be taking longer than initially expected, then again, as it'll be our first Android app and we really want to ensure that you get the quality Steinberg is best known for. Please watch this space for upcoming info and hope you bear with us a little longer.
Many thanks,
