    Hooray – found that version 4.5.17 runs on my Digix Tab-730 after I mistakenly clicked upgrade. Android Drawer rocks my $37 tablet!

        The app is great, really glad I found this site!
        Helps make my previously useless Kindle Fire HD into something I can use on a day to day basis. Only issue I am having is that it won’t let me sign into my account. Is there something missing or something that I need to do?

        Thanks,
        Ty Higgs

    Thanks to this site i was able to download version 5.3.32 which works perfectly on my phone. I to made the mistake of upgrading and got stuck. I would definitely spread the word about Android Drawer.

    I’m on the nexus 10, and the latest update is poorly optimized for tablets. I’m glad I found this site! Now atleast I don’t have to wait until YouTube fixes it.
