Android Central Ap

Updates are always good, and this one is filled with some of the things you've been asking for

Our awesome Android Central app just got .1 more awesomer, as we've pushed out an update that addresses some of the things you've been asking for. With version 1.1, you've got a sexy new scrollable widget (which is also resizable and will work with your lock screen if you're running Android 4.2.2) that puts the latest Android news right on your home screen, keeping you up to date. (It currently refreshes every half-hour -- we're looking at making that more frequent in a future update.)

Normally, that in and of itself would be enough to make a new release, but that's not how we roll here. In addition, you've got landscape support throughout the entire app, including the settings panel tucked on the left side. That same side menu now works on all screens, too. 

One last thing -- when we write a story that includes a link to Google Play, you'll now have a shiny Google Play Store icon in the Action Bar across the top of the app. Tap it, and you can open the link to the app directly in Google Play using Android's powerful intents system. 

We think you'll enjoy this latest version, and we're already hard at work on the next -- using your feedback as a guideline. Update your copy of the Android Central app through Google Play, or you can just tap the link above to check it out. You'll also find a handful of screenshots after the break.

Android Central App Version 1.1 brings landscape support, scrollable widget


Fantastic update on the app, one thing which is slightly annoying is when I go to sign in, landscape mode doesn't work. Loving the app though.

Does this work on Gingerbread yet? I know that I'm stuck in the past, but I don't have a carrier upgrade yet and I'm a broke student. As you have reported, about 40% of users are still on Gingerbread. Please let us use your app.

This app is awesome!! Great work. Now I can spend less time working and more time dickin around on Android Central!!

How about forum notifications??? Any other website sends emails of forum replies, I shouldn't need a paid app like Tapatalk for itbto work, it should work within the website & app.

Months? Well, glad it's being worked on. I'll participate in the forums a whole lot more once a notifications system is finally active. Notifications is definitely something loooooong coming.

Nice update! Between this, new Google play store, and SwiftKey sale, this is turning out to be a great day!

It says in the app description :

★ The Alex Dobie Accent Emulator: Now you, too, can sound like a sexy British beast.
★ Jerry's Beard Status: Is it happy? Is it sad? Is it shining in all its glorious splendor? Keep up with Jerry's Beard with push notifications.

Can someone tell me where are those? :-)

Android Central and Developer Team... Congratulations on a very nice job on the app!

Can I suggest that Resizable Fonts or Pinch to Zoom with Text Reflow (see the Phandroid App) and Dark Theme or better yet Black Theme to Forums be added?!

Thanks, K425

I just looked again, and guess what, My Note2 still has 4.1.2, so no landscape mode for me. Do I need to give this phone up for the S4?

This App just keeps getting better and better, Great work!... Definitely lQQking forward to some themes, especially Holo style!

I'm sure your aware but uploading pics isn't available yet. When it is will it be directly through site or some alternative site via the app?

I had issues posting pics to contest through tap a talk but I could post fine in RAZR maxx thread with no issues.

Keep up the good work!
