>Rob’s Surf Report is now on Android!

>Last night, I ran across this post in the Lifehacker feed in my browser’s sidebar. After scanning over it, I thought that if I could make an Android app for my blog, then people could read my blog on their Android phones! In what may someday be deemed an unnecessary move, I stayed up until 1:30 in the morning working on it, tweaking the settings and whipping up graphics in the GIMP. I’m happy with the preliminary results: get the Rob’s Surf Report app v1.0.4 here.

I’m thinking about making a download button for the sidebar here, and I have to figure out how to change the favicon here to the new surfboard icon I found for the app. I believe that if I have a button, then I can keep the app current on that, and have the version number listed by the button so that people can see if they have the most current version or not.

If you have comments, questions, concerns, doomsday prophecies, whatever – leave them where I can find them!


  1. >:D I'm sorry, Michael! I saw the post on Lifehacker about feed.nu, and I was like, "ding!" It turns out I can get the app on the Android Market if I get some sort of developer thing for $25, but I don't have a clue what it would take to make an easy app for the iPhone. Too bad, you should see it – it's pretty spiffy. I should look into that possibility.
