THE APP IS NOW IN BETA. SEE THE NEW THREAD.
Me (Harris), drew, and poserdonut have created a Giant Bomb app for android. You can watch/download videos, read various site content, and listen to or download the bombcast.
IMPORTANT:The app is not complete. Though it is nearly feature complete, it is still not completely polished.
Get it on the Android Market!Thanks to Jeff's donation towards the Market fee, the app is now on the Android Market. It's listed as "GiantBomb Alpha". Download it and leave a nice rating!
TestingIf you have an android device, please test this application. I only have one device, a G1, so I can't test it on other devices like the droid. Please leave feedback! This is important, and will lead to a more stable app.
UPDATE: Please submit bugs/issues here:http://code.google.com/p/giantbomb-android/issues/list
Screen ShotsNOTE: These screenshots are from version 1.3.
Source codeThe project's source code is up on our google code page here:
The latest binaries are also uploaded there, in case you for some reason can't get it off the market.
I apologize in advance for my sometimes sloppy and mostly uncommented code. I'll fix it eventually.
