New RefuGeeks Android App Available

Anthony Esposito from the No One Here Yet blog has very kindly created a RefuGeeks Android app for us. Version 1.0 was released last night and I’m currently working on getting it added to the play store. It is basically an app interface for the website along with some really cool links to our social media sites, contact page and an awesome about page where you will be able to learn a little bit about the story behind RefuGeeks. Anthony has also worked really hard on getting scaling and pinch to zoom working – this means that our app will work on your device whether it be phone or tablet.

Here are a couple of screenshots from my tablet:

As many people who visit this site will know, I’m very big on Open Source, as is Anthony. So we are making the RefuGeeks Android app Open Source for you to download and edit as you like. This is a great starting point if you want to create an Android app yourself, or to just learn how they are put together. Links to the .apk Android installer and the Source Code can be found at the bottom of this article.

Why not let us know your thoughts on our brand new Android App in the comments section…

    Was just wondering today if Refugeeks has an app yet and searched the play store. Thought I could make one, but alas… Mr Esposito beat me to it! Still, great news! :D

    don’t get me wrong but this is just a web page! it can be more than this maybe if you use RSS to make it read the feed from Refugeeks then it will look more app not just a web page, with all of my respect this my feedback you can totally ignore it :)

      That’s correct. It is basically a framed version of the website. It’s a great start though and we are hoping to continue to develop the app. If you’re an android developer then please feel free to download the source code and help develop the app :)

        I’m not an android developer, but I hope your app get better and better and as you said it a good start and the good will flow :)
