I'm not actively maintaining Droidstack anymore, I guess real life just got in the way. Being in college and having a full time programming job leaves no room for hobby projects. Also, ever since the mobile-optimized web UI launched, I felt there was no need for an app like this anymore. Thus, I might be removing Droidstack from Google Play Store soon. I'll leave the open-source project up, so if anyone's willing to pick up where I left, be my guest (and please let me know).
In the future (once I finish college this summer), I'd like to either pick up development on Droidstack, or create a new, simpler app that only offers what the web UI doesn't (e.g. notifications).
To get Droidstack, either:
- Search the Android Market on your phone for "Droidstack"
- Go to Droidstack's Android Market page
- Open the URL
market://details?id=org.droidstackon your phone
- Download an .apk file from the downloads section of Droidstack's Google Code site and install it via ADB
- Scan this QR code:

Droidstack is an Android app that allows you to browse Stack Exchange websites in a very cool, native kind of way, while keeping a Stack Overflow-like look & feel. The API functionality is powered by StackWrap4J. The awesome icon is created by the talented folk at androidicons.com.
I'm the only one currently working on this app. You can contact me here (comment/answer) or get my email address from here.
