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!

Congrats on the milestone and thanks for all of the great articles and information.

Morning routine: Boston Globe and Android Central!...and of course a nice cup of coffee.

That'd be great. We have a new Android app coming out, too, and a NEXUS 7 would be perfect to test!

I check android central every day during my lunch break, keeps me up to date on all things android! I've been coming here since I had my Fascinate, and the forums were great. Thanks!

I love this app! I check it almost every hour for the latest updates. I also can't wait until Saturdays when you post "apps of the week". I found so many cool apps for my phone.

My Nexus 4 order went out yesterday. It will be lonely without a big brother.

That's great guys. Love the app so much I had to become a beta tester when y'all released it.

As an English man I'd enjoy this greatly. Also well done. Using the app right now!

Congratulations, AC!! Way to go. Now as a token of your appreciation, why don't you send that Nexus 7 to me and i'll hand it over to my 12yo daughter....PLEASE!!
Kidding aside, you guys are doing a great job!

I'm 68 years old. There's not much time left. I would like to spend my remaining days in "tablet comfort"

NOW HOW ABOUT A 'CONGRATULATIONS' POST ALL IN CAPS, JUST TO SEE IF YOU WOULD TRY AND SHIP AN AWESOME TABLET TO EASTERN EUROPE? :D

Oh well, congrats on the milestone, the app is quite good. :)

Posted via Android Central App

Thanks for the great app and resources, really appreciate all the work!

Posted via Android Central App

I need a 7" tablet to load up with the AC app to go along with my nexus 10. Gimmie!

Great app, use It every day. Add side swiping to move from story to story (ala Appy Geek) and it would be perfect.

Posted via Android Central App

Good deal. ..app is good, if you keep reviewing your own app it will b great!!!!...

Congratulations guys! My go-to for Android-related news :) (Also, winning a Nexus 7 would be swellsauce ;) )

I use the app everyday. I can't wait to install the app on my new Moto X when it gets here tonight. Then again when you send me my new Nexus 7!!

Congrats!!You are so informative. Read all your posts and share them too. Would love to win :-)

Nicely done AC, congratulations. I love how you have handled site integration with the app and look forward to future improvements. :-)

Congrats on this app, I come here at least 5 times a day. You all have made me an android freak.

Posted via Android Central App

Here's to a great website and a great app! Congrats! I look forward to what's coming.

Would be freaking awesome! Just switched back to Android after a quick stent on iOS and would love a new N7!

Congrats! Android Central is my most frequented app on my phone

Posted via Android Central App

Happy to see the app is so successful so early, now give me the goodies.

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats, AC! You've been on my daily checklist since I got my Atrix 4G! Thanks for the 411!

Please pick me. My Nexus 6 died because it only had a 4 year life span.

Posted via Android Central App

That's really awesome.. making fellow users to get more interest on Android Central :))

Posted via Android Central App

My odds at winning look slim. But what the heck, can't win if you don't play!

Posted via Android Central App

love to win one as i'm still stuck with a Blackberry PlayBook and don't own any Android device (last one was a HTC android 2.1 Phone with 2.5in display)..

Congrats Guy's! The app is fantastic and I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeves!
Keep up the great work!

Posted via Android Central App

The question is whether or not the Nexus 7 wants me, now isnt it?

Bravo on the accomplishment. I would know nothing about Android if it weren't for this site, and the mobile app. (Yes, that includes XDA which I found as a result of this site)

Loving the app. Would love to give the nexus 7 to my kid who needs one for school, they're moving to online content for school work.

Posted via Android Central App

I want this please. I'll even donate my current nexus 7 (old version) to a kid in need somewhere.

Posted via Android Central App

Again, this is a great achievement. Congrats on 100k. Now a great achievement for me would be to win that new nexus 7...so many contests entered...so many prizes...given to another deserving winner. Thanks for another chance.

Wow, come on comet! Congrats on the app milestone and good luck everybody!!

v¡a ACapp njo¡!

Find my self using the app more than I ever thought I would. Great job on it.

Posted via Android Central App

I would like to point out that now would be a great time to reward me, because I never win anything. This is your opportunity to change my life.

Change my life, Android Central!!!

Congrats AC Team! Love Android Central. I look at it at least 4 times a day. Would love to win the Nexus 7. Would be my first tablet!

Congrats. Can only hope once I get an app on the market mine gets this kind of attention...

The best Android news app period, and one of the most well made apps in the Play Store.

Posted via Android Central App

Congratulations guys, AC has become my preferred news source for all of my Android news and reviews! The new app has made it much more convenient, since I do 90% of my online reading with my phone or tablet. You guys have great developers too, great response to bug reports and feature request. Keep up the exceptionally good work guys!

Shucks, I had no idea that I was gonna write such a drippy, glowing post, I might have to copy and paste that to a Play store review...

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats A.C!! May you have more milestones to come!

Posted using HTC ONE via Android Central App

Are your competitions open for US only? If not, count me in.

Posted via Moto XT890. And I love it.

Heeyy!! There Phil from android central...Congratulations on achieving this great milestone. A great goto site deserves the recognition to be the GOTO site on all things android.

This would be a great addition to my GS4 and Chromebook!!!!

Posted via Android Central App

Congratulations for the milestone! I'm glad to be one of those people who have downloaded and use the app.

Posted via Android Central App

I just new this app would be a win win for my usage an a give away pretty much seals the deal.
Thank you for both guys.

Posted via ACA

Awesome. This is really a great milestone to celebrate. And you plan to celebrate in this way by a giveaway, is the best :) Thanks AC Team ! Kudos and keep it up !

Congratulations for the milestone! I'm glad to be one of those people who have downloaded and use the app.

Posted via Android Central App

Yay! Congrats on the downloads! Nice work! I visit this site several dozen times a day! (Actually, I just leave my browser window open and refresh it like crazy)! I gotta have the latest and greatest Android News!!!! Keep up the good work!

Amazing job well done, I so love this app keeping this old fart informed of all the latest and greatest android growth and development.

Posted via Android Central App

I haven't had anything "brand new" since I was a kid... and I'm 28! I think it would make more than just my year if I won this... here's to wishful thinking :-)

Posted via Android Central App

I switched from Windows Mobile & you guys helped me fall in love with Android. Thank you!

Posted via Android Central App

This would be an amazing thing to win. I've always wanted a tablet.

Congrats on the milestone.

I love the way the AC app came out. Thanks Neil

Posted via Android Central App

Add me to the pool. My wife sure would like a nexus 7 compared to the poor nook tablet she's using now.

I seriously think you guys are the most consistant, level-headed android bloggers out there. You get the facts and verify as well as you can before you share with us. Much of the others will spout out every rumor as soon as they hear it, ultimately recalling it. Keep up the good work, you guys deserve it! (This really wasnt meant to be a butt kissing post, but its truly how I feel about this site.)

Hey, you guys deserve it. You do a really great job with the app, site, the work time put in and quality of information. Thank you.

Posted via Android Central App

Just became a member of the site as I purchased my first android device (S4) last week (having been a long time blackberry user). Having followed Crackberry for years this was the first place I came to try to get up to speed and one of the first apps I put on the phone and it has been a wealth of information for a newbie. Thanks and keep up the great work!

Oehhhh a new nexus is the perfect replacement for my aging acer iconia a500... I hope I win.

Posted via Android Central App from my galaxy nexus

My no. #1 source for all things Android. Kick ass Android Central! Grats

Posted via Android Central App

Well done, you are doing a great job! Thanks to Neil and everyone else too, the redesign looks eye-catching and works as smoothly as it should do. A Nexus tablet sounds wonderful too!

Posted via Android Central App

Wowzers, this would be amazing! I could give my OG Nexus to my girlfriend and look like a hero! Puhlease pick me!

Great app! Keep up the good work, and a new tablet would be great too!

Posted via Android Central App

I switched from Windows Mobile & you guys helped me fall in love with Android. Thank you!

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats everyone there at AC!
You've been part of my daily.. eh, hourly news junkie reading list for a good while now.. and for that, I thank you / hate you. :)

Scrolling down a whole page is annoying on mobile! There should be a quick comment link or even make the comment box above the comment list.

More on topic, my girlfriend has been ogling my Nexus 7 for a while now, it would be nice to give her one too.

Congratulations on crossing the milestone! As much as I'd like to win, it's enough that I've downloaded your app!

WooooHooooo ANDROID CENTRAL !!!!!!! A C ALWAYS GOES WITH ME .... KEEP IT UP GUYS. I have to check the app several times daily,,,, you're all the news I need!

Congrats on the milestone! I sure don't want to pass up the chance to win a new Nexus 7, so count me in for the drawing...

Hey..... Free nexus 7 ....
Android central has great app...
I like black background and font size selection ... I love this app ... I open this app almost every hour to check news...

Posted via Android Central App

I forgot to add, this app is great on all my devices.
Now I imagine I'd it be sweet on a new Nexus indeed.

Posted via Android Central App

I hope my name is drawn. Just moved from Apple and am anxious to check out more Android based products.

Great job guys keep it up!!! Excellent way to keep to speed with the news in android world!

Posted via Android Central App

Congrats Android Central! Thank you for allowing me a chance to win a Nexus 7. Hope I win.

Posted via Android Central App

Really love the app. And I'm not just saying that so I can win a nexus 7.

Posted via Android Central App

Congratulations Phil and the team, keep up the good work! PS - I think you need a UK winner to show off how your awesomeness spans internationally!

Posted via Android Central App

Hello Android Central team!

First of all, congrats on the milestone! Keep up the good work. Second, I would like to be entered to win this Nexus 7. I would looooove to play around with it and watch some video in 1080p resolution. Thank you for the giveaway.

Keep up the amazing work! I tell everyone to follow you for the best information.

Posted via Android Central App

I have had this app almost the same day it came out, I work at Verizon wireless and I use this app to stay ahead of my Co workers with everything Android, really you guys r the best

Posted via Android Central App

Normally, all interesting articles I do share with the social media like twitter, facebook, google+ and many more... But this time, I'll keep it to myself, just to enhance my win-chances :-) But, Androidcentral team : Congratz with the app, the achievement and hope to hear from you a lot more !!!

Love using the app guys. Great job all around. Getting my Android fix now :-)

Posted via Android Central App

I love the new app personally! I use it constantly. Still some small issues, but for now I'm blaming my aging Bionic for the issues since all of my apps seem to have quirky issues no one else has ;)

Love the app keep 'em coming.

Consider me entered
