The ACK Kayak Launch Points App for Android offers all the same features and functionality as the iPhone/iPod Touch version, enabling users to explore, rate, add photos, review and share kayak and canoe launch points while on the go.

“The launch of the iPhone version of the app in itself was a tremendous success and it’s always been our intention to launch an Android version,” said Peter Messana, CEO of Austin Canoe and Kayak, “before we could even pop the cork in celebration of the iPhone version, people were already demanding an Android one — we moved quickly and delivered.”
