    NEW HUKD Android Application - Testers Wanted

    If anyone would like to test my new Android HUKD app before I release it, it would be greatly appreciated. I would like some feedback to the UI, design, features etc. Minaly what features you feel are missing and what you would like to see in this.

    This has got lots of great features in it, and I have a lot more planned for future updates. Nice clean and usable UI, and great integration with the Android OS!

    PM me if your interested!!

    Please comment below with any Features you would like to see in the App! I can them strive to release as many as possible this weekend for testing.

    EDIT: Ok I have finally got a stable build for you all to test. Here is the link, please give it a go and leave me some feedback!

    I'd like to give it a test. I'm replying in HotUKDeals Droid. So happy to compare.

    Suggest you remove your e-mail address from the thread description & invite people to send "Private Messages" instead.

    BFN,

    Please make it so we can post in misc and not just deals. Also, maybe a widget with hot deals or subcribed threads? Also can you make it so it supports large screens like the dell streak.

    I'm happy to test for you too

    Which of the apps allow you to Post in the Forum's/Add a Deal? I didnt realise there was an API for this? If there is something available, id be glad to give it a go.

    The main focus Im going for is an Android UI, not a mimick of the HUKD Mobile Website. I think you will like what I have done, and look forward to your feedback.

    Im definitely going to be creating a nice Widget for it. Probably a couple but more details on that when I do them.

    And yes, Large Screens will be a focus for this app as well. Being an Android Developer, you can expect to see some specific Tablet designs or even their own App.

    I use HotUKdeals droid which allows you to respond to threads but not post new ones.

    Ok ill have a look

    Just checked, and indeed the app does allow you to post back. BUT, the one difference between my app and theirs is that I am create the Views myself, they are using the mobile version of HUKD.

    There is no API to be able to POST on the forums. Maybe some trickery can get around this, ill have to look though (plus I might not be allowed to dig around to do this, ill see what I can find).

    Ive not been able to do much on it this weekend unfortunately. I might send a small build out to you later, but its not even got half of what I have planned for it built yet.

    I've got an android phone and I'm a regular user on HKUD, I'll give it a test for you..

    So, ive finally got a version of HeatDroid you can all test! Below is the link. This is a "beta" if you like, its not got the final graphics I would like, and I thought I would get some initial feedback before I released it to the market. One of the main things I want feedback on is the "???" section on the Dashboard. I want you to let me know what feature you think I should add in there!

    I have many more ideas that I will be adding into the app, but I want to get an initial release out there first. Then i can concentrate more on individual features and improving the app.

    Anyway, here is the link, give it a test and please leave feedback!
