    so am i the only one that thinks it would be pretty BA (bad @$$) if android central had an app or widget that would show a news feed and possibly update you on forums you have posted on maybe choose your phone or other interests you are following... just an idea let me know if its stupid

    I would like a forums app definitely.

    I bookmarked the mobile site, and put the bookmark on my homescreen.

    If you wanna keep up on the news, use the RSS feed and go to Real-time RSS feeds - RSS to email - Feed My Inbox

    Not a stupid idea at all. And you are not the first to mention it either. It is being looked into I assure you.

    a dedicated AndroidCentral news widget would be cool. I'm too lazy to do an RSS feed but I guess I can see how to set that up.

    bookmarks are always useful. Homescreen shortcuts also help. But, a widget that updates would be super sweet

    So, I am trying to teach myself the basics of creating apps(so any advice is welcome), but what do you guys think about an unofficial, open source app for the site, or the forum? I know there may be tons of legal issues to make this impossible, but I'm curious if there are enough new and experienced app developers on this forum to help build an app. If anyone would be interested in this, we could possibly use the forum and Wave to collaborate.

    My purpose is to gain some design experience. So if there would be issues with making an unofficial app that simply looks at the androidcentral.com site or forum and arranges the content in new experimental ways, please let me know. And reply back if you think we could garner interest in any other collaborative efforts.
