Platforms & Devices

FPAssistant is a multi-platform app and has been designed to be used in a variety of computer based devices from mobile phones and tablets to personal computers.  These include:

  • Windows 10 – Devices running Windows 10 Fall Creators Update†

  • Apple iOS – iPhone and iPad (Expected mid 2018)

† Devices running Windows 10 are primarily Intel/AMD PC’s and ARM based PC’s, but also include the prospect of Xbox, HoloLens and Surface Hub.

App Suite & Feature Extensions

The basic app for FPAssistant is free on all devices and this covers a broad range of useful tools but other features in the app suite are available as extensions on a yearly subscription basis; some may have a trial mode giving the ability to see the full functionality before purchasing the subscription.

Offering features or app extensions on subscription allows the user to purchase the features that they need (rather than having to purchase a complete package) and also allows a short term usage of a specific feature.
