    Update: 14/06/2011 - More structure and information to thread - Will leave original Thread post at the bottom of this post.


    About Andbuddy
    Andbuddy is a service that provides free file hosting for Android Developers and there followers. Our servers have dedicated 100MB pipes, which means you can download your files at high speeds. Users can download files for free with a little wait or donate and get a Premium account to download without the wait and increased download speeds.

    We are still in the BETA stage and have a fair few ROM/APP/THEME Dev's already using us, but want to offer the service out to a wider audience. This community has offered me so much and I wanted to give something back.

    About The App:
    The app itself is still in development, but will be released by the end of next month, It will allow the user to search a developer, see most downloaded files, sort by device, sort by App and the list goes on.... The best part is of course this App is free of charge.

    The Website:
    The website is up and running and in Beta stage, with everything going well so far: http://www.andbuddy.com

    How do I get an Account?
    If you are a DEV and would like a free account, please let me know and we'll get you up and running in no time.

    For users we are giving away the donate accounts free for 6 months, if anyone would like to try the service out and maybe upload a few of their own files.

    Feedback:
    It's really important at this stage we get as much feedback as possible, all feedback is welcome, what other features would you like to see etc?
    Please leave any feedback within this thread for now. I will setup a bug tracker soon.

    In depth Info:
    Coming soon - full feature list of what to expect in the APP, E.g Beta App Market - where developers can post there apps and games to be beta tested.

    Known Bugs:
    None!

    --------------------------
    Hi All, I wasn't sure where to post this or if it was allowed at all? so if i've broken some rules by posting this here please remove it and don't ban me lol :D

    Basically i've just opened up my newsite AndBuddy - Supporting the Android Community with free one click file host we provide file hosting for android devs and android users. The reason I'm posting here is I wanted to offer users of this forum either a free dev account - if your a dev or a free 6 month premium account to anyone else that posts here....

    Take a look and let me know your thoughts. Sorry again if i've broken any rules.

    Thanks

    Typically we prefer you keep these kinds of things in your signature but seeing as you are a seasoned never we'll let it slide. ;)

    That's actually really cool. I wouldn't yet consider myself a developer, but I am a Comp Sci student who is most familiar with Java haha. I've begun messing around with the SDK and developer tools and I've been enjoying it so far. I'd definitely be interested in an account! :D

    Are you planning on having any forums or community-based discussion? Also, as mentioned before, I recommend creating an interesting link in your signature here on androidforums

    Good stuff :)

    Sweeds Account upgraded to premium :). Have fun, please ignore the flength error on the uploader - its just a problem with the status bar - which i will resolve this weekend. files upload just fine anyway.

    We will have a comminuty of some sort eventually, were working on the app first ;) about 60% complete on that.

    Forums, doubt it as theres so many great ones already like this.

    Have Fun

    What would be really cool, and forgive me if this is one of those crazy asking for too much suggestions, but what would really be cool is some type of app engine support.

    So like some type of secure database hosting/backend type API that was easy to integrate with an app. I dont have anything too specific in mind but I'm sure I could come up with a few ideas.

    Games would be an easy target here (leaderboards). Social type apps too.

    Perhaps some type of templated website an app could hook into.

    Anyways, neat product, but I think stuff like that would really pique my interest. I know as an app dev who knows a bit of PHP and SQL I find myself way too lazy to want to code all 3 :)
