The Blackhawks Android App has been tested on the devices above, but should be compatible with all Android devices that run OS 2.2 and up. The app must run from device, not SD. The device must be capable of running h.264, .MP4, RTSP streams. The App is optimized for hi-rez 800x480 screens.

Why won't the App work on my Android tablet?

Since there are so many permutations of the Android tablet, including screen resolution and operating system, it is difficult to optimize. Our App developer has identified the top five selling Android devices to support, which doesn't currently include any tablets. We hope to be supported on all Android devices in the future.

Why am I being asked to give permission to share my personal information using the Android App?

This request occasionally occurs due to the App's Send To A Friend function. The device's operating system is requestion permission to use the owner's Email, Twitter or Facebook info, but the Blackhawks are NOT collecting any personal user data.
