The OpenVPN for Android app is fully open source and is based on the latest OpenVPN (Git-master) code branch. This means that certain features are available in this version of OpenVPN that have not yet made it into the regular production version of OpenVPN.
For this example, we installed OpenVPN for Android from Google Play on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 tablet running Android 4.3.
For both OpenVPN for Android and OpenVPN Connect, it is handy to set up a special configuration profile. This profile can then be imported into the OpenVPN app with one click. This applies to both the Android and iOS versions of the apps, as we will see later in this chapter.
Note that there are two separate apps, both written by well-known OpenVPN developers. OpenVPN Connect is a product from OpenVPN Technologies, Inc., written by James Yonan. OpenVPN for Android is written by Arne Schwabe.
