Who do I talk to in order to receive permission to release an unofficial Giant Bomb Android App? I recall a fellow Android Developer had his app removed from the Play Store for a short amount of time and he had to receive permission to get it back in the play store.

Whom do I talk to in order to make sure that does not happen to my app?

Try @rorie I bet he knows (or is the one)

For those of you interested, here are some screenshots.

Features include News, Reviews Videos, Podcasts, Wiki, Unique Tablet Interface, ART support, and Chromecast Support for videos.

@tykin: I would suggest sending a PM or e-mail to Rorie. He seems to be up on these things, and if not, then he would probably send it along to whoever is in charge of it.

Yep as others have said Rorie will either know or be able to direct your request to the people who would know.

As others have said, you should contact @rorie. The one issue I think you might face is that your app doesn't really appear to do anything aside from just spit out all of the data form the site in a different form.

Chromecast support for videos would be enough to get me to buy in. Good luck, duder!

@tykin: So long as your app is not commercialized (i.e. no ads and not being sold), you should be fine.

@rorie: What about in app donations?

Any chance you could send a fellow bomber the apk if it's not the store? (Would gladly supply said donation!)

Will give you testing feedback - Moto G, MediaPad 7" Tablet, Nexus 4, Chromecast

No offense but so far the mobile website looks nicer to use, ahem..
