Cool Free Remote Android Support App

Zikk is unique mobile to mobile remote support app.

So what's so special about Zikk?

It is designed for consumers and not for IT depatments and operators,
therefore it is extremely simple and user friendly.

It provides full privacy protection - no screen sharing, and no access to SMS, email, etc.

It doesn't require constant internet access, and doesn't prevent the recipient from using his
phone for other purposes during the process.

It supports all Android devices (2.2 and above).

In addition to remote support, Zikk contains a local settings menu which uses Zikk's simple
and friendly interface.

When people have a hard time setting up their smartphones, they ask help from their friends
and family - Zikk enables users to help each other.

APK attached. Also available on Google-Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.zikk.alpha)
where you will also find a short and helpful demo video. You van also find the video on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsP9-Lpfwpk).

So both people need Zikk installed, I presume? Does the person you are helping get prompted to download it?

Correct. If the selected contact does not have the app, the user will be asked to allow sending
an automatic SMS with a link to the download page. There is also a share option where you can
send this message (via SMS, WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.) to one or more people.

This really does sound great; however, does it support wifi-only tablets? Is the phone number just to receive verification code? If so, will any mobile phone number work?

The current version is designed for Android phones does not support WiFi-only tablets or
large screen tablets, however in a few weeks I will publish the tablet version, which will
include UI adjustments, tablet related features and a different registration process.

Fix the link.... & Also it'd be nice to add a promo pictured visual (Banner, slide show,ect) above to ease all the questions asked below.
Nicely done though. Props.
