Nike confirms Android app for Nike FuelBand no longer in development

While Nike originally confirmed it would bring an Android app that syncs with the Nike Fuelband out in summer 2012, the release window has come and gone. It appears Nike has now confirmed that it stopped development on the app and will instead focus on developing the existing iOS app and web experiences. Nike’s official twitter account confirmed the news today, followed by a comment from the company to DroidLife:

To deliver the best experience for all Nike+ FuelBand users, we are focusing on the FuelBand experience across iOS and, where you can sync your activity, set new goals, and connect with friends.  At this time, we are not working on an Android version of the mobile app.

While the app has already existed for iOS devices for quite some time, and Nike has a good relationship with Apple through the company’s Nike+ apps for iPods, it doesn’t seem likely that Apple is keeping the Android app from being released. Nike has many of its Nike+ related apps already available for Android on Google Play.
