    Its Alive!

    Download the unofficial Eurogamer App V2 here

    I've got to hand it to the guys in this thread that have helped beta test this application over the past 2 months. Big Thanks!

    For those of your who have V2.28 installed, upgrading to the marketplace version will take you to V2.30.

    The only differences are that I have taken out all the noisy debug information and after creating/editing a forum post, it will take you to the bottom of the thread.

    As usual, please use this thread to comment on the app and report any weirdness you might experience.

    Oh, also you should go easy on using low quality connection GSM speeds at the moment, its parsing the main site HTML right now...

    I get an error trying to install.

    There is an error parsing the package.

    Really sorry for picking an evil online filesharing provider, I didn't think (a few beers in here) that they wouldn't work that nicely with mobile browsers.... I'll remedy that in a few days...

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Digital foundry is spelt wrong.  Aren't you trawling the HTML of the site? One for EG to fix then :)

    Lots of other little usability things i see but will post from a keyboard as this is too slow.

    Great first beta release tho!

    Just noticed you can't quote your own posts.  No biggy but might be useful. Quote button disappears and edit button shown instead.

    What are your thoughts on putting the review scores as spoilers in the main review screen?

    Also some scores are missing, Ico/SotC etc.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Would love a page selector for those threads with lots of pages.

    In the edit post screen, make the b i u and quote and spoiler buttons much smaller and then we should be able to see the preview and post buttons without having to close the soft keyboard.

    I put an option in the settings to hide the review scores, perhaps I should default that to false.. as for the missing scores , they don't publish all the scores in the archive.  I guess its down to the Guy that writes the review to enter the score into their cms.

    Hmm, one for you to look at then maybe as the Bodycount review had the score in the review text but not on the main screen.

    I did think about doing a page selector but never got round to it, consider it on the roadmap...

    I've really got to get my head around the dynamic edittext layout, its been a nightmare to work with, especially on landscape.. I'll put some work in on that next week.

    Its lovely to know that the things that are bugging you initially are the things that have been bothering me. I had to try really hard to ignore those things otherwise I'd be tapping away for another 3 weeks!

    Its the archive i'm parsing. Click on the reviews link on the menu on the main site,  sadly its missing :( or maybe that's a good thing!

    I tend to use and think the app looks best in portrait.

    Landscape view as well! This really is a fully loaded beta. EG seriously need to be crossing your palm with silver.
