The time has come! The new Phandroid (beta) application is now available in the Market.
This will be an update to the existing "Phandroid News" application. (And the release you got yesterday)
Please bear in mind this is a beta build. Also.. the UI will get a makeover in the future.
Rob will make an official announcement in the coming days on Phandroid.com, but for now here are a couple notes from myself:
- There are two widgets included. On the news widget you can tap the article icon to cycle through articles. Tap article name to read it.
- You can adjust the updating interval of the widgets in the preferences.
- You can star news articles and then use the built in filter to view them later.
- When in the forum portion of the application, press your menu key and log in. You will then be notified of private messages, be able to view your subscribed threads, and have access to other forums you may have rights too, etc. You can turn off PM notifications in the preferences.
- When in the IRC Chat room you will be notified of conversation in your notification bar as well. Please be polite. I do not want to have to turn it into a moderated chat environment. We will if we need to, though, and that will be much less fun.
Again, stay tuned for Rob's official announcement. Hope you enjoy!
