    Hello Kolor Eyes people,
    I’m a developer, and very interested in 360 videos.
    I was wondering, do you have any date set for the public release of the android app already? and also are there any plans to release an SDK for the android release?

    Your answer will be much appreciated,
    Good day,
    Gil
