    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.

    @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 Commented Apr 13, 2012 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.

    @KaranM: It would be awesome if you embedded a QR code linking to the app in your post. Commented May 13, 2012 at 20:33
  • Are you gonna run this app through the blackberry-android port. I would love to get this on my PlayBook. Commented May 16, 2012 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

  • 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. Commented Jul 18, 2012 at 2:20
  • Where can I find the APK? My Android device supports neither the Market nor Google Play.

    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

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.

  • thanks for the feedback. currently working on a holo ui with more features. should be available in the market soon..cheers
