Company says it’s sticking to iOS platform and web.

Bad news for those of you who own a Nike FuelBand and an Android device, as Nike have openly said that they are no longer working on an Android app.

The Nike FuelBand is a wrist device that tracks a user’s activity to convert it into ‘NikeFuel’. The data can then be synced with an iOS app or on the web via USB and accompanying software. Nike has said back in 2012 that an Android version of their app was in the works, but there was no further update on any progress. Now, in a recent conversation with Droid Life, Nike confirmed that they’re only focusing their efforts on iOS and the web. Nike’s PR released a statement to the site, saying “To deliver the best experience for all Nike+ FuelBand users, we are focusing on the FuelBand experience across iOS and nikeplus.com, 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.”

Later in the day Nike’s official support account on Twitter also confirmed this, saying “Right now, we’re focused on iOS and web. We’re not working on an Android App”. This didn’t go down well with many users, who flooded Nike with tweets demanding for a refund for supposedly lying to their customer base.
