I am happy to announce that last week we released SAP Mobile Start for Android v1.3 to the Google Play Store.

With this release we accomplished an important milestone, as it brings the Android app to the same release version and feature set as the iOS version*.

Going forward this allows us to release new features simultaneously for Android and iOS, providing additional value to all of our users at the same time.

If you are new to SAP Mobile Start, SAP's native entry point to the Intelligent Enterprise, make sure to read my previous blog SAP Mobile Start for Android is available today for an introduction.

Read on below for an overview of this release and some impressions of the new features or download the latest version directly from the Play Store!
