AndroidPIT Launches App Center

Douglas Carter
15

I'm proud to announce a new addition to AndroidPIT's offerings: App Center. App Center is a new app from the AndroidPIT team which gives access to the test reports, news stories, forums, and the AndroidPIT App Database. In addition, when looking at an app in the App Center, you can also download the app through the App Center, if the app has been uploaded to the AndroidPIT App Database.

If the app is not in our database, the App Center will provide a link taking you to the Android Market, where the app can be downloaded. The AndroidPIT App Database includes more payment options: PayPal and voucher codes. In addition, users retain the right of app refund, as would be expected.

Upcoming features of the app will include the ability to purchase your apps directly on the website, pay easily using ClickandBuy, and save installed apps in your AndroidPIT profile and install them smoothly on your new phone!

Coming soon to App Center will be the ability to select apps on the AndroidPIT app database that you want to download. After an app is marked, you can go to your Android phone, start up the App Center, and the app will inform you of your previous selections, and ask if you want the apps to be downloaded. Then, the app(s) will be downloaded onto the phone. Look for this upcoming feature soon!

If you are interested in downloading App Center, head over to this page on your Android phone and download the file, or visit this link. Details on how to install the app are available here.

I have made a forum thread about the App Center here. Link to the app entry for AndroidPIT App Center on the AndroidPIT app database.

    You have to enable "unknown sources" in Settings / Applications / Unknown sources. It tell you how to do that in the last link I presented. Some networks don't allow the install of non-Android Market apps, so I wish you luck.

    Is it intended to work with Android SDK 1.5 ?

    While trying to install on phone with this version of firmware it shows a message "App Center could not be installed on this phone.". Previously I've installed on phone with 1.6 version of firmware without any problems.

    It worked for me just fine, so that is strange. I'll talk with the developer and see what he says.

    Works great on my HTC Eris..

    one question: why is there a forum tab at the top and then a forum button on the bottom? They seem to both do the same thing.

    One more note: While searching for apps.. I noticed it defaults to paid apps.. however; many times there isn't any paid apps in a category. I think most would like it better if it defaulted to "latest" that way it would should both paid and free together.

    @Alexander
    The app is designed for "SDK Version from 1.6." Shouldn't you have Android 2.1 already if you are in the States and have an HTC Hero?

    @Stefan
    What do you mean, you can't download it? What exactly is the problem?

    @justJay, the bottom Forum button always brings you back to the forum index, and the top button only changes which part of the app you are in, but it won't reload the forum index.

    I'll pass the second suggestion on to Sven, and ask him about the first question.

    I have made a forum thread about the App Center here:
