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!

I would love a Nexus 7 to go with my Nexus 4! And congrats on the (very) big 100,000.
I'll see you at the million mark.

Congrats! A nexus 7 would be sweet! Hope you pick me because I'm poor and using the library just to write this.

Congratulations Android Central on this wonderful milestone! Now how about you hook a girl up with a Nexus? Momma needs a new phone.

I've yet to try the app, but if I win, it'll be the first app installed, though.

Congratz on 1K downloads from the play store.
reading articles every day. Thanks 4 that!

N7 is not even released here in Holland.
hope to win this time.

Congrats the beta felt like it was just yesterday

This app has come a long way and is looking really nice! It's been fun seeing new features and tweaks along the way. Great job guys!

Congratulations. I have a disabled friend that would love that N7HD. To whom do I send the shipping address? Thanks for your consideration.

I do like the app. I flash roms so often that I sometimes forget to re-download it. Good luck everyone.

Congrats. I have the app downloaded on multiple devices just so i always know whats going on with android.

No surprise on the achievement at all... Android Central is the only stop for my Android needs!

I'd like one please! Esp after my note 2 died, so I'm having to use my old nexus one which barely holds a charge.

I'd love to win, congratulations on the huge achievement your content is amazing. I'm always up to date with your content.

Posted via Android Central App

Glad I could help! I got the app just a few days ago :D

Posted via Android Central App

Love the app. I never view AC on a web browser anymore.

Posted via Android Central App

Congratulations guys. I'd love to see what the app looks like on my new nexus. Keepin' my fingers crossed.

I would love a nexus 7. Would be my first tablet.

Posted via Android Central App

Way to go android central ... Im on here daily for my android info !!

Posted via Android Central App

Been with windows phone since it came out, recently upgraded to an s4 which is my first android phone. One of the first apps I downloaded was Android Central and it id a great app and looks awesome. Pretty sure im done with windows phone now lol.

Posted via Android Central App

Way to go guys, here's to another 100,000 downloads!

Posted via Android Central App

Not gonna lie, I still use the website more than the app, but I definately use and love the app .. and a free 7 would be AWESOME!!

Congrats fellas! Keep doing what your doing because I'm loving it. AC app is my go to app every morning to read tech news while having my coffee. Now let me get that N7 off your hands...lol

Awesome I love Android Central and now have the app. I would also love a new Nexus 7 heck i would even take an old Nexus 7!

You guys are amazing, keep up the good work!

Posted via Android Central App. Galaxy Note II

With all the Android users out there it should be 1,000,000! Spread the word!

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats on hitting that milestone, this is easily one of the best Android information centers around and it covers such a broad and unique horizon of info. Thanks for such a great app.

My daughter could really use this for school. And, congrats on the milestone with many more to come for sure. It's a great, stable very informative app. No bugs what so ever on my GS3. Keep up the good work.

Posted via Android Central App

I've been using the app for awhile for all my AC fix. Would love a brand-spanking new Nexus 7 to view, comment, and post around the site to go along with it!

Congrats !
Glad to be one of the first 100,000. Love the app. Love to see it on a Nexus 7.

I remember when you were just 3000 downloads, now you are all grown up. Soon you will be 200,000 before we know it.

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats A.C hope I win a nexus 7 it would match my N4

Posted via Android Central App

I have this app installed on my htc one, old Galaxy tab 10.1, old nexus 7, my wife's nexus 4 & I'll be sure to install it on my extra nexus 4 I just ordered. I'll be thrilled to install on that new nexus 7 if I'm lucky enough to win it! Just doing my part for the cause!

Posted via Android Central App

I still enter contests here all the time, hopefully one time I'll be able to win. If not, there is always tomorrow

I want it! I can't afford it right now so it would be great if I could get it for free!

You guys are awesome, always giving back to the fans! :-) I would love to win this new nexus 7 as it would replace my dead old nexus 7:-(

Posted via Android Central App

The new Nexus 7 would fit perfectly with my Nexus 4. Then I could have a Nexus Family. So send it to Bermuda!!! Hopefully it makes it through the triangle

From my ParanoidNexus with the Awesome AC App

I am new to Android (8 days in as of today) but I have been following AC for a while now in my decision to go to either iOS or Android (from a Windows Phone). I ended up going with Android and I've got the AC app.

Also, thanks for the Android 101 articles. They help newbies like myself.

I love Android Central, love the app, love the Nexus 7...I need to win this...thank you!

Posted via Android Central App

The app is awesome. Love the dark theme. It makes creeping the boards even creepier.

Posted via Android Central App

I never used an tablet so pick me ...android central...

Posted via Android Central App

I actually didn't think there would be use for this app. might have been skewed by the first iteration. But I decided f*** it cant hurt to check it out. And it litterally is my main app I go to first for any kind of news and its only android related stuff here. Its really slick. Hope to be able to see it on the N7 screen. But regardless great work in this app. Others should take notes.

I live in India.I highly doubt whether they will ship this still unreleased thing over here to here in India where I live if I'm going to win this.Jai ho.

Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner! Umm... I mean New Nexus 7. Doesn't rhyme as well but would still love to own one of these.

Congrats to AndroidCentral!!!
You guy have always been at the forefront and this app is no different. This is one of the most informative and best looking apps for Android today.

Posted via Android Central App

I really love using this app. Can wait for further improvements and a chance to use it on my new Nexus 7!

A new Nexus would be perfect to show off the app to my friends :) I hope I win this one :)

I hope I win, I'm using a Nexus 4 with OS 4.3, build JWR66Y, would love to have the new Nexus 7 to go with my current device. I think the new AC app version 1.4.2 is finally stable on my Nexus 4. Why do you have another app called AC Forums, maybe its time to start spreading the word to get every on to the AC App if they are still on the AC Forums app. IMO.

Love the app!! Would love that tablet too ;-)

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats!! I've been on the fence about getting one now or waiting for the next version, this would solve that dilemma!

I've never owned a Nexus device, especially a tablet of any sort. College starts again in a few days so it'll be awesome so helpful if I got a Nexus 7 :D

Well you know what they say - you've gotta be in it to win it!

Congrats guys.

Considering I'm the only one out of family (Mrs and two kids) that hasn't yet jumped on the tablet bandwagon, the Nexus 7 sure would be a great place to start... ;-)

Congrats AC. Keep up the good work. I love it here. I'm here just about every day. Mostly because of how nice everyone is. No flaming for the "dumb" question.

Congratulations!! Maybe you can improve you rating by adding tablet support.

Posted via Android Central App

Best source for android related news..in Androidcentral, we trust..I live in India and the new nexus 7 is yet to launch here..hope I win this giveaway! Thank You.

I'm not surprised, the new app is pretty great IMO. New Nexus 7 FTW!

Posted via Android Central App

Congratulations Android central. You guys have a great app and a great website. I use this for all my lays android news on a day to day basis. Congrats on the achievement. Keep up the good work

Posted via Android Central App

Congratulations! I love the app!! And a Nexus 7 won't hurt either :-)

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats to everyone at AC for the milestone. there's a reason we're all here on the site. And good luck to everyone in need of a N7 like me :D

This would be an awesome prize to win... Still follow on fb but have started using the Android Central app for everything else from backgrounds to apps... My boy suggestion would be to add a ring tones section to the site /app...

Posted via Android Central App

A nexus 7 would make a great gift for someone who uses this app all day every day (I'm sure that does not narrow the field down at all)

Posted via Android Central App

I've been a member of this website for quite awhile and its still my go to source for all things android, keep up the good progress guys!

Posted via Android Central App

Apo is looking great.. Getting better with each release. Excellent job Neil!

Posted via Android Central App

I'm not usually a massive fan of apps for news sites, usually prefer to browse through mobile sites but AC is one of the exceptions - love the app particularly v1.4

And would love to win a Nexus, of course!

Super! I really enjoy the app & very up to date reviews.

Posted via Android Central App

Really cool and the application has spoiled me to other apps I am not ashamed to say! Congratulations!

Posted via Android Central App

Even if I don't win I am still keeping the app! 100,000 downloads, great going guys (and ladies).

Congratulations in the App success. I use it daily and it's much more convenient than loging on the mobile website. Thanks

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats. Always nice to have an easy way to get my android news fix. Would be nice to be able to do that from a Nexus 7 though.

This is one of my favorite apps, keep up the good work guys!

This is one of my favorite apps, keep up the good work guys!

Posted via Android Central App

Congratulations guys!

Android Central is where I keep up to date with what's going on in the world of Android, so your success is definitely something to be lauded.

I have been accessing your content on Flipboard for some time now...never occurred to me that you had an app. Onboard now, looking forward to reading your full content; who knows might learn enough to keep my kids from snikering whenever I say "Android OS"...yeah probably not.

Posted via Android Central App

Congratulations, I just downloaded the app and I'm impressed.
I'd love to win my first nexus device.

Your app is by far my favorite im new to android and I love it ! I dont miss my iphone or wp8 one bit

Posted via Android Central App

I love the app but I sure hope they include your site to Blinkfeed. Currently I am loving the HTC one but I would like to see posts from your side too. I do realiye that this would mean that the app would probably not be so widespread but until then, Good luck.

Cheers.

I love all the improvements on this app and I would keep using it even if you weren't giving anything away, ha! I've been biding my time, waiting to get the new Nexus 7. I hope this is my chance.

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats! We appreciate all the Android and Google updates and info!

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats! Great app. Use to follow on twitter (still do) but love the evolution of this app! Thanks

Posted via Android Central App

Have to admit, I am normally unimpressed with website specific apps, but yours is awesome and one of the few I use regularly.

Posted via Android Central App

Confession: I've haven't yet tried the AC app. Perhaps I could install it on my new Nexus 7?

Congratulations guys, and thanks so much for all the great reporting and now the great app to make it that much easier to keep up on the go. Cheers!

Posted via Android Central App

Pick me pick me!!! I've never won anything in my life... ;)
