three ports and a movie

I'm excited to have released today a git-annex assistant port to Android! Today's release also has the first stage of a port of git-annex to Windows. I also saw the Mac OSX port running today for the first time. 

In recent months, I've made several screencasts showing off different parts of the git-annex assistant. You can see them all at and I've included the introductory screencast with this update.

I have accomplished so much more over the past year than I ever dreamed I would! All thanks to my backers for making it possible. My Kickstarter funding continues for another month, and I will be continuing to polish and improve the git-annex assistant. Stay tuned for more news.

      Just thought of another question, is there an app for Synology NAS server?

      @Vikash there's a link to download the APK along with the other platforms on

      @Yaroslav I'm considering putting the Android app in either the Google Play store or the FDroid repository. Still a bit early to do this.

      Hi Joey, Great news, I am looking forward to using the android version. Can you tell me where I can get the APK from? Thanks

      Hi Joey! Congrats on the milestone (interestingly enough I was playing (again) with annex (and assistant) this morning) -- now I am fetching the .apk for the download and the logical question would be -- when will it appear in any Android "repositories" (e.g. Google's Play)? you know those spoiled folks needing automated updates etc. ;-)
