Android Central App

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. We're proud to announce that the official Android Central app has surpassed, for us, a major milestone, amassing more than 100,000 total downloads. (And, quite frankly, with a keep rate that even I'm astounded by.) 

So from all of us to everyone who's tried the application, thanks! We've still got plenty of work to do with the app — features to add, items to improve and bugs to squash — but we're making great progress. Huge props to our developer Neil for all the hard work.

And as but a small token of appreciation for helping make us the No. 1 source for all things Android, we're going to give away a new Nexus 7 we've got laying around here. Still in the box, of course. To enter to win, just leave a comment on this post. That's it. We'll close down the comments at midnight Eastern tonight, pick a winner and get the tablet shipped out on Thursday, so the winner can have it ASAP.

And if you haven't already, please give our app a try!

Way to go AC! Posting this from my AC App with my week old Nexus 4 running 4.3. Could use a Nexus 7 to replace my BB Play book!

Need to get my little brother a birthday present, this would be perfect especially as I'm broke :)

Congratulations, great job. Your forums saved my ass from different problems more than once!

I would like to have a new N7. With the N4 price drop, you should stock up on those for giveaways...

Wow! 100,000 downloads is a huge achievement so congrats on making an app that everyone wants! And I never win any contests or anything like that so I doubt I'll get that Nexus 7 tablet but if I did I would be like the happiest person ever!

Wow! Lots of comments and only 1 prize. Well, odds are those who fish catch the fish.

Congratulations on the milestone! I have the app on my GNex and my 2012-Nexus 7 whose screen is starting to separate from the body. I'd love to win the 2013 Nexus 7!

I hope I win! I've never won any of these giveaways and I always enter them

Oh man... my 3 year old mac crapped out on me and I'm using an old Moto Xoom for everything. This would make my year!!!

Wow! I love Android Central! Thank you for the contest.

Posted via Android Central App

Boy... that new Nexus 7 would sure be a great companion to my Nexus 4 that just arrived for $199. :D

You guys are awesome! With your spur of the moment give aways.

I've used the android app a few times and it's not too shabby. The one complaint I've had is I wasn't sure I was getting all the new articles without switching through each of the categories. A clear "EVERYTHING!" category would be nice (if it wasn't added already) and some tracking of where I read to last would be helpful. Heck, start off at the oldest article I have not read yet and I'd use it more often than the normal webpage.
