With proud I can present the WSGF News application for the android mobile.

System requirements are very simple, check if your android device has the app in the market and your good to go.
You will need Android 2.1.x, version Eclair of higher.
Also this app is tablet aware, so check it out :).

Newest update, 0.2 beta 7
My todo, bugs and long goals list.
[spoiler]

  • Bugs resolved

  • Squashed bug that first item wasn't displayed, this time for real

  • Probably squashed bug that reload on no data did nothing

  • Cuncurrency bug with databse


Todo

  • Notification vibrate and led in menu

  • Hook above on notification and add sound.

  • Make some basic tests for program.



Long time goals:

  • Add a filter for items.

  • Making a widget for it.

Great work mate, it's been a pleasure testing this for you. In fact, I found out about it's release via the app itself! 8)

Thanks for all your hard work on it, it's great.

Did get access to a real tablet and noticed some bugs:


  • Menu opties tablet inflate 2de inflate

  • Text size callback van settings

  • Change link color (android:textColorLink="yourcolorhere")

  • Changing the locale from "default" to "short"

  • Make save XML more robust (unique xml id)

  • smarter saving (last 25 articles check on difference or something like that, have to brainstorm)



These bugs I will solve when I get development time for it.

Also a call for the translators out there, if you want to help, let me know so I can give you the strings to translate :)

From HowlingBlue: The application certainly does what it's supposed to do, but I can't help but think that you could do better by just keeping an RSS feed so I can follow news with Reader, and use Tapatalk for the forums so I can post on the go.

My response: There is also an option to read the RSS feed, the link is http://widescreengamingforum.com/rss.xml . Did also research into Tapatalk, but we can't use it, because the forum software is drupal based, otherwise that would be an option :). Note that I'm not the web developer of the site, just a forum member :)
