    Does anyone have an Android phone? Need some help with my app...

    Hello all. Is anyone the proud owner of an Android phone? If so, would you like to do me a big favour and try out my Hot-Deal app for it...

    Yay! Knew someone had to have a phone.

    First things first I haven't put it on marketplace yet - there is a $25 charge to set up an account so before I do that I wanted to try it out on a real phone.

    The website is ]here and the direct link to the .apk file is ]here. Not sure if you can install a file direct from the .apk so I'd appreciate if you could try that link on your phone and see what happens. Thanks very much, keep me posted! :thumbsup:

    i tried but the phone just downloads the file as normal but then canot be installed into the phone without going through the apps store (i think)

    sorry i could be of any help

    Thanks for trying, sort of guessed that would happen actually. It seems it is possible to install - waiting on 'developer' to tell me how he got it on his device. Its a pain trying to write for a device you don't have sometimes!

    App is now available on Android market so should be easy to find and install. Not sure what the direct link is so try searching for 'hotdealapp'. Please let me know if anyone installs it and has problems (or success) and any feedback/comments/suggestions/general abuse!

    Just searched for it and found it, but why does it say. Services that cost you money, directly call phone numbers

    At the moment the app has the option to call stores customer services numbers directly - its an option that can be disabled in the preferences but I might remove it completely (probably not really that useful a feature...).

    It probably also refers to the internet connection - but the app won't really work without that :thumbsup:

    Kk cheers for getting back to me I will download it and let you know how I get on with it.

    Thanks to everyone who helped out with my app for the HUKD API competition, version 1.1 is now available to download from the Android market or directly from the ]website.

    As ever if there are any problems/bugs/things you would like to see/other comments, please do let me know!
