Android should come first, it has more devices.

No, apple store first because I own an iPod and I don't own an android device

No, Android first because fuck you. Or just try to cross-platform

But can it survive a fall without a case on?
Does it have Flash or Google Maps?
Does it have default HD resolution or some weird one that will even display photos from the camera with black borders around it?
Does it have an OK battery life?
Does it work with your slightly older products? (I'm talking about in relation to chargers)
Can you control the phone from your PC?
Does it have an affordable price? Not overpriced?
Can you remove the battery?

Then you must be confusing your phone with an Apple iPhone

Yeah, the Android tablets are especially great. I tried one and I liked it so much.

I was wondering about why NG has no app either. It would be awesome to deposit experience on the go!

I'll try and get started on one for the BBS for ADK. Then maybe move onto flash and then eventually site wide.

Other than that, fuck you.

This conversation made me laugh out loud. I thought Cherry's logic was goofy until I saw the counter-argument: "..because fuck you."

Anyway, related note: I want a NG app...until then I'll just use my phone's browser to surf the site :)

Yes, he mentioned the Newgrounds Fapp in another thread before. But he said it was only for him, as in his own personal app. Nobody else gets to use it.

He already has, and I think they are available on his website, luiscastanon.com or something.

I always had the impression that apple can support flash. I know my Android doesn't support the new flash player, no idea why...

I think it'll be supported in the newer versions of Android and later on in the older versions.

The one I'm working on is for Android.

Nah you should go for it!

I'm still like way early in the process, there's also alot of technical hurdles to get through, like being able to filter content that is mobile friendly, and games that are mobile enabled or what not. One day in a perfect world, things will be at a point where there will be a swf and a mp4 version of movies and the featured content slider would just be stuff that you can view on a phone. Same with games, For now I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to browse the site in a streamlined manner and in an efficient way of doing so by not having to recut or touch the thumbnail sizes and stuff.

This wasnt what i originally envisioned with an app. The one I had in mind was more about an app that let you access your stuff from the pure statistical and utilitarian approach. Not so much as a way to consume content.

Anyway heres a mock up I was working on earlier in the week. Its still kinda ugly.
