Nice 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 Apr 11 '12 at 3:17

@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 Apr 11 '12 at 14:23

@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 Application –  theheadofabroom Apr 13 '12 at 7:23
    
@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 Apr 15 '12 at 14:39

@KaranM: It would be awesome if you embedded a QR code linking to the app in your post. –  ThiefMaster May 13 '12 at 20:33
    
Are you gonna run this app through the blackberry-android port. I would love to get this on my PlayBook. –  Brandon Clark May 16 '12 at 2:15
    
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 too –  mseancole Jul 10 '12 at 23:26
    
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 Jul 18 '12 at 2:20

When 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 2.3.3 –  Deqing Jul 25 '12 at 13:51

@KaranM I've also got the Authorizing Application problem, any news on that update? –  Craig Nov 23 '12 at 21:06

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.
