Get it on Google Play

Attention, people of Earth! Somehow in the 1,000 or so words written yesterday on the Version 1.3 update to the official Android Central App, we managed to leave out another change — and this one actually affects the website as well as the app. 

The blog for some time has used the "Get it on Google Play" badges to link to apps. We've now implemented it in the same way in the app, which is a more consistent design. But we didn't stop there. Now we're using that badge to link to anything in Google Play. Books, magazines, TV shows and movies, music — anytime you see that badge, it'll take you to the listing in Google Play. In the app, on the blog, and straight to the listing. Done.

And if you haven't already (what are you waiting for?!?!?) be sure to check out the latest version of the Android Central App!

What device are you on? I have used it pretty extensively on 4 different devices and only had a crash or 2 in beta then 1 or 2 on day 1 of official release.

Sony arc s with ics. In 1.2 i never had a crash!

It is also very random when it crashes. Hope they can do something with my bug/crash reports :)

Noticed that you all out it back. I wondered what happened to it.

Phil apparently wrote this article and thought "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" ... because you'd think there'd be a badge here linking to the AC app!
