      Hi Erin,

      Thank you for getting in touch. Telstra Health isn’t involved with the A Better Visit app, however I’ve had a look at the Dementia Australia website and can’t see anything about an Android version just yet. I would recommend getting in touch with Dementia Australia directly to ask about their roll out plans for the app.

      Thanks again,
      Sophia
