Android Central App

A quick heads up, folks, that an update's on the way for the official Android Central app. Bugfixes, mostly, but we've also added deep linking for our forums.

There's good news and bad news with that. The basic deep linking means that if you tap a link that goes to a forum or thread from or app, or an e-mail, or somewhere else (Twitter and Facebook are still a pain because they shorten links on their own), you should get the option to open it in the app. Chrome is also a little finicky with that, and we've got more work to do there as well. So no deep linking from Chrome. But we're on the case, and we didn't want to wait to get you the basic functionality, especially because it means links within the apps will work just fine.

And because it's high on your wish list (as well as ours) — yes, we're still planning on bringing a search function to the app. There's a bit of back-end work that goes into that, and we want to make sure we do it right, so that it works on all our sites, in all our apps, on all the major platforms. So thanks for your patience there. (We can't wait to get it either.

You can download the Android Central App from here. You can find the history of changelogs here.

And if you're so inclined, we'd love for you to leave a review on the app. If you've got some love for it, say so! If you've got something constructive to say, say it! If you're going to try to be cute, however, remember who's on the other side of this keyboard.
