I can't connect my Google account. It keeps on reloading the page.ltlynx 2013-10-24T18:03:04.853

having an option for download other than Google Play would be great. SlideME, Amazon etc. or just plain old download APKDroopy4096 2015-03-20T06:09:45.563

Wow, I am developing a similar one, beat me to it.Prasanna 2012-03-23T02:23:47.030

3Building a ios version? If so i cant wait to see that up in app store and check it out. My ios would take more time. :)Karan M 2012-03-23T10:21:10.323

16Nice app! I'm a Developer Advocate on the Android Developer Relations team at Google. If you're interested, I'd like to offer some advice on how you can improve the app even more.Reto Meier 2012-04-11T03:17:43.827

Hi Reto, Many thanks for the comment. Much appreciated. I would really like to hear from you, regarding the valuable advice once I push the next update(1.2.0) which I'm currently working on. Kind RegardsKaran M 2012-04-11T12:33:21.263

8is it open source?Blankman 2012-04-11T12:47:07.220

1@Blankman. the code at this moment in time is still closed-source but I hope to release it once I reach a stable version on all platforms like iOS, Windows and Android. Regards.Karan M 2012-04-11T14:23:42.870

8@Karan I'm getting the authorization step hanging on my Sony Tablet S using both the default browser and Firefox - it just hangs there saying Authorizing Applicationtheheadofabroom 2012-04-13T07:23:36.900

@BiggAl I'm sorry about that, but we are working on an alternative way to enable connecting accounts to the app. It should be available on the next update which is due this week.Karan M 2012-04-15T14:39:37.043

2@KaranM: It would be awesome if you embedded a QR code linking to the app in your post.ThiefMaster 2012-05-13T20:33:33.477

Are you gonna run this app through the blackberry-android port. I would love to get this on my PlayBook.Brandon Clark 2012-05-16T02:15:48.313

Have you run the update for that authorization bug yet? This app looks promising but I've been unable to use it :( Just tried reinstalling it toomseancole 2012-07-10T23:26:55.393

I like the UI, but I'm still have the same authorization bug issue as those above. It really takes away from the app as a whole.HipsterZipster 2012-07-18T02:20:46.627

Where can I find the APK? My Android device supports neither the Market nor Google Play.KevinOrr 2012-07-18T16:29:45.777

2When I tried connect account, the browser stayed in a page saying Authorizing Application, and nothing happened then, my account was still not connected. My device is Samsung P1000 with Android 2.3.3Deqing 2012-07-25T13:51:39.933

@KaranM would love to see the source code too... I'm not too familiar with oauth, so it could help save me a lot of trouble :PAlex Lockwood 2012-07-25T21:27:14.610

How about making the app more ICS themed? I feel the current look of the app is very out of sync with the current Android UI Developer Guidelines. http://developer.android.com/design/index.html If you'd make your code open-source, other would be able to contribute and make it even better. +1 for a great app nonetheless.

I just downloaded android app from market, and tried to look around. And i realized that you keep recreating activity again and again. If you keep open activities enough, this app will realy generate memory overflow :D. (try it and you will need to use back button a lot to exit :) ) And also too obvious and eye diturbing pixelerated UI designs. I hope you fix it. Because i like to keep in eye on stackoverflow on mobile.
