The Mattermost iOS app is available in iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mattermost/id984966508?mt=8
Its source code is available here: https://github.com/mattermost/ios
Work on native Android app is in progress and can be monitored here: https://forum.mattermost.org/t/whats-the-status-of-the-android-app/849
Huge thank you to all the offers to contribute and test. Product team is working to get this out as smoothly as we can.
[Mattermost Android app now available for Mattermost 2.1 and higher](http://www.mattermost.org/mattermost-2-1-android-windows-linux-and-mac-apps-plus-portuguese/)
Android app should be open sourced by the end of this week. It requires a change to the server API, so for it to work with a production site you will need to wait until Mattermost v2.1 is released on March 16th.

Why ios first when Android is the most used phone not just in the world but among open source people? Already had my cto convinced to migrate from slack, until I saw no Android... Very disappointed our 300 employees all use Android.... Grgrgr ridicules
+1 this is awesome!! Keep it up!!
Please don't forget Windows Phone!
Arthur, SSO is a feature planned for iOS, it didn't make it into the first release.
Sorin, please see: http://www.mattermost.org/community-applications/#native
Android release is in beta among contributor community right now, and our aim is for Android to follow iOS in features.

The iOS app looks good, except that users that sign in using GitLab SSO are not able to use it. There is no way for SSO users to sign into their team.
Is this is a known issue?
Gabriel Le Breton commented
ios version looks good, keep up the good work :)

My company is waiting for an ios/android native app to switch to mattermost.

we love Mattermost but its been a struggle to convince others to use it because of the lack of phone apps. I think if these were in place you would see a worthwhile increase in adoption

+ 1 for Native iOS & Android client... a must for our team.
Native clients for iOS and Android is critical for our team
An Android and iOS app is one of the most important parts for us

We have two requirements to switch to Mattermost:
1. Incoming webhooks (which was just recently released)
2. Android / iOS app (we're 98% Android users)
Once an Android app is released, we can switch over to Mattermost. It's cool if we can compile our own Android version too. This can solve the notification problems.
Would be nice too if we can plug in our Parse account (parse.com) for the notifications.
