LaunchBox and Big Box on Android will be the same application. Basically, I'll be adding views to the Android app to behave like Big Box. So no additional purchases. :)

Is there or will there be a version optimised for Android TV?

I do most of my development/testing on Android TV, so I would argue that the current version is optimized for Android TV. There's no reason that a separate version needs to be made in order for it to be optimized for Android TV; that's a misnomer.

Dude, having the Big Box interface on my phone or tablet will be epic! Can't wait!

I would love to see the Android TV "Quick Launch" ability added. Any plans for this feature?

I'm guessing you mean putting games on the Android TV home screen? I hadn't thought about it honestly, but that makes sense.

Since LaunchBox and BigBox will basically be the same.

Is there any possible way we can get it integrated to run with the Bigbox plugin for Kodi?

You mean Kodi on Android? I assume Kodi on Android provides some mechanism to launch external applications. Or did you want to launch Kodi from LaunchBox?

They are separate purchases, however you only need the free Windows version in order to export to Android.

Yeah Kodi on Android. I was just wondering if we launched the Android version of LaunchBox from BigBox's addon within Kodi will it still provide the same interface as the Desktop version?

No, the desktop interface of Big Box won't automatically be accessible on Android if you start it from Kodi.

Saddened by this news man. BigBox through Kodi on Android would be my dream  Shield TV setup!

Thanks for all your efforts though. Really appreciate you guys work.

Just make a custom Link on Kodi pointing to the Android version of Launchbox.
