System: Yoga Tablet Pro-1380F, Android Version 4.4.2, YT2-1380F_USR_S000219_1504281410_WW21_ROW
After opening the previously installed Lenovo Companion App, 1.3.0.0215, it asked me if I wanted to upgrade to the latest version, 1.4.0.0518. I was interested in the 8 new diagnostic tools, so I did the update through the prompts. After I did the update, and rebooted, I launched the app. It "looked" OK, until I tried to run the diagnostics. The entire Companion App crashed.
I then un-installed the app, and rebooted. I went to the Google Play Store, and searched for the Lenovo Companion app. I was surprised to see that "This app is not compatible for your device". To recover (get back to version 1.3.0.0215) I needed to download that version, using the link given in post # 6 by supersmp.
Now, whenever I launch the app, it prompts me for the update, but at least the version 1.3.0.0215 diagnostic tools work.
So, mostlyhuman, my advise is to wait until this bug is worked out. If you want the app, try the 1.3.0.0215 version in post # 6, above.

Hi, would love to download the app BUT I have just upgraded to android 5. Seems a big mistake as cannot connect to internet (no trouble with android 4) Says authentication problem. Have tried cancelling and re-entering password, turning router on and off and factory reset. Nothing. If Lenovo come up with a repair how will I be able to get it into the tablet when I have no internet connection.At the moment I have a tablet that is about as usefull as a roof tile. HELP

I received information that Companion will add support for the Android Yoga Tablets 1st and 2nd Gen in July.
It's well past July and Companion still does not support the Yoga Tablet 2. Any updates, Amy?
Also, could you explain which models are supported and which are not? Is it by generation? CPU (Intel vs ARM)? Yoga vs. non-Yoga? Android version?
