Claptrapp appears to be gone from google play store


(Rhesus1) #1

I am not sure if this is the right forum, but I recently got a used Gentleman’s Claptrap in a box RC robot. It clearly says there is a claptrapp app for both IOS and Android. I have an android phone, so no problem. However, the Claptrapp app is no longer available in the google play store. Is there a work around, so that I can use the product I bought?

Got you moved to what seems to be the most likely spot. Also pinging community managger @MereAtGBX to see if she knows who to ask about this.

Hey all, I’ll investigate this!

Awesome. Thank you. If all else fails I can use my wife’s Iphone, because it is available still in the Apple store, but really want to use my own android phone if possible.

Hey @Rhesus1 , just a quick update. This is actively being looked into by the appropriate parties. I’ll let you know what they get back to me with ASAP.

Thank you for the update!

Same issue here, seems to be the only mention of this issue I can find online as well. I checked on Google Play and still seems to be missing. Hopefully there is a fix soon, there is no other way to control this robot.

So any updates yet because I still can’t find the app myself on the google store?

Same.

@GeekVersusNerd: Any chance you could check in with Mere on the availability of the Claptrap App? I know she was looking into it, but that was right around the “We Happy Few” launch, so I imagine she was rather busy…

My apologies for the delay in responding to this. Sadly this app no longer functions on your device, since Google Android P OS now blocks apps built for Android 4.1 and lower.
