android / windows app
J Alan Waters — Jul 25, 2018 07:43PM UTC
I'm confused as to why there is not work being done to have a android and/or windows version of this app? Although previously it was cumbersome to convert apps between OSs, there are devoted developer communities that would make this a simple process. If this is truly meant to be the "gold standard" assessment battery that encourages reproduciblity and widespread adoption, I'm confused as to the decision to limit its dispersion to one OS, and not even to the still most widely utilized OS worldwide. Our lab would love to continue utilizing NIH toolbox, but we don't plan on spending twice as much to continue buying Ipads when comparable android tablets can be bought for half as much. I hope work is being planned to open this app to other platforms, namely android and windows.

The NIH Toolbox web based version has been closed to new studies since January 2017. It was closed due to the increasing costs of maintaining the web-based version of the NIH Toolbox.
We are considering the development of Android versions of our apps, but it is likely still a few years away.
The development, validation, and ongoing maintenance of NIH Toolbox on additional OS and hardware is a complex process that would require considerable investment in time and resources.
