Yamaha app now available on Android

Publish date:

Yamaha WaterCraft Group announced its mobile application is now available for devices running the Android operating system, including Android tablets and smart phones.

Every day, 400,000 new Android devices are activated and more than 100 million have been activated, according to a Google report published last month.

The app, available free in the Android Market, gives consumers the inside track to Yamaha’s WaveRunners and boats through an interactive experience optimized for their device.

Introduced earlier this year for the iPhone and iPad, the Yamaha WaterCraft App attracted consumer and dealer interest, proving interest among these audiences for more robust content on their mobile devices, according to the company.

“The response to our app has been overwhelmingly positive from both consumers, who love to browse the products and watch the rich media, to dealers, who have every single piece of product info on every model right at their fingertips on the showroom floor,” Yamaha WaterCraft Group national marketing manager Bryan Seti said in a statement.
