I have been working on an app as part of my second year at Uni and would really appreciate it if you guys could take a look at the blog and tell me what you think so far. It is a news aggregation tool with the usual stuff but I am also hoping to include steam integration and wikis. I am about to finish Twitter integration and will then move onto integrating Steam.
So here is the Blog, please give it a look:
Post your feedback an let me know if there is anything you want to see as the screenshots on the blog don't show everything.
Things to bear in mind:
- This is for a second year Uni project NOT for me to make millions of pounds/dollars/monies!
- I'm testing it on an iPhone as I don't own an Android or Windows phone but the intention is for it to be compatible on all three.
- I am doing everything independently, code, assets, design.
- This feedback will be included in the final project report
Thanks a lot!

@Excellence Looks interesting, will take a look this weekend if I get time
Information that would be useful:
- what the hell is it, what does it do?
I mean I had a look at the blog, so I see it's a game news aggregator. Still, might be useful to add that info in your post. As you launch in with "I have an app" and "I'm working on twitter integration" but there's no context yet as to what the app is.

Looks OK so far from the screen shots / blog posts.
@Salaman very true, my bad! updating now thanks for noticing!
Is it kinda like a flipboard thing? but just for game news etc..?
Or Perhaps Flipboard with Instapaper/Apple Reader view?
@KayJay yes it is similar to flipboard except you choose the sites you want , rather than a mix of random stories
"GameHub is a News aggregator that lets you view articles from your favorite magazines and news sites on your phone. It is currently in development but the goal is to allow you to view your Tweets as well as to integrate your Steam account into the app."
There you go.
This project was started before he sold it for millions sorry. And I have stated it is a project not for money. Also bear = animal. to bare with = to be patient.
Thanks for your thoughts though, I'll add them to report =)

@Excellence I really like the look of it. I use flipboard a lot. But I get frustrated with the way the stories/articles are presented. I like the font and the "Reader" look of the articles alot.
How are the backscreen images selected? is it user selected or automatic from the feeds?
I don't use Facebook or Twitter but the integration looks pretty slick.
@KayJay Background is randomly chosen when you start the app =)
@Shikasama Hi, don't suppose you could give me some reasons why? =)
@Shikasama Yes but it wouldn't be feasible by my deadline so it would have to be added after. Even though this is a uni project I am going to keep working on it after the deadline.
oh and thanks for the feedback! =)

@LeoliansBro =O you're right! For clarity I don't want any of you to get naked ...
People do like a correction on here. The only forum that is known for its filthy language and its impeccable spelling

@spindle9988 You should see what I got over at IGN, those people aren't well in the head!
Whatever you do people, don't use profanity in your actual feedback as it will be included in his report!

The report is going to need an appendix on bare/bear usage.
You use a bear to fight off wolves.
