Help! Does Kowalah run on Android?


Currently Kowalah is only available in the AppStore for Apple's iOS devices.  You can run Kowalah on an iPhone, an iPod Touch, or an iPad. But what if you have an Android device?  We know it is very frustrating for parents who have been referred into Kowalah by a friend, but can't use the service yet.  We hear you - and will be launching an Android app later this year.

For now though, we can still help you via our Kowalah Concierge service - where one of our team will run the booking request for you, select your Kowalah on your behalf, and provide details of the confirmed booking to you.

How do I initiate an Android booking request?

Visit the link below to access our Android Booking Form.  Let us know all the details such as your address, number of children, the date and time of booking and any additional notes you'd like to share.

The Kowalah team will then run the search on your behalf - this will normally happen within 60 minutes of you completing the form, but if you log it late at night or early morning we will typically wait until more Kowalahs are online to get you the best choice.

Once the booking request completes we will select a Kowalah from those that accepted your request using a set criteria including.

  • Kowalahs you have used before
  • Kowalahs that have a DBS certificate
  • Kowalahs that live closer to you
  • Kowalahs that you have rated 5 stars
  • Kowalahs that other parents have rated 5 stars

We will then send you the booking confirmation, including your Kowalah's profile and reviews via email.

How do I pay for my Kowalah?

Your Kowalah will be running the Kowalah app on their iOS device - so they will start and stop their Kowalah timer as normal.  The following morning we will send you an invoice for your Kowalah - you do not need any cash to pay for the service.

If you have any questions then just let us know - we're here to ensure your first Kowalah experience is a great one!

We'll keep all our Android users up to date via our Facebook and Twitter pages with updates on the upcoming app.
