    UPDATE: We're now live in Google Play! https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oidcentral.app

    OK, boys and girls! It's finally time for us to share the all-new Android Central application. It's not a finished product yet. (What is, really?) But we're getting close enough that we just can't wait any

    We've still got some kinks to work out. Some are visual. Some are functional. Some may take more time and miss the initial release. But have at it, and let us know what you think, any bugs you see, etc. And most of all, thank codehut for all his hard work. (Those of you who came over from BB may remember him.)

    Note: We targeted Android 4.x and up with this release. It would help when reporting bugs if you include your device and OS version, blood type, astrological sign and city of residence.

    We'll update with future beta builds in this post.

    Here's your direct download.

    v0.9.2 changelog

    • 7-inch tablet optimizations
    • Support for forum BBCode tags, images, and img attachments
    • Ability to edit forum posts and cleaned up context dialog.
    • Fixed crash with clicking certain forum links
    • Display forum name for each thread in latest, favorite, and participated threads
    • Fixed up new thread/post text input handling (capitalization)
    • Fixed up login page viewport issue (facebook/google+, etc.)
    • Changed banner icon - new Lloyd!
    • Minor text/grammar fixes

    Installs perfectly on Nexus 4 (JB 4.2.2), working very well.
    Small bugs:
    -Some profile pictures are not loading on forum threads.
    -Slight stuttering/lag whilst scrolling through articles on Home page
    No major problems or bugs so far

    "cannot open file" galaxy note 2 4.1.2 At&t. Looking forward to trying it though!

    Like stated below:

    Ok when I tried to open it from 'recent downloads' it would give me an error. But when I went to 'my files' the stock file explorer on the Galaxy Note 2 (4.1.2 AT&T) it opened and installed no problem. Writing this from it now. First impression: impressed. :P

    Installs fine on Stock HTC DNA.

    For those having install issues, list phone/OS version...

    Being unable to open the apk is definitely not a feature.

    Looking into it. Here's a direct DL link if you wanna try that. http://cdn.androidcentral.com/sites/androidcentral.com/files/articleimage/684/2013/03/app_alphas/AndroidCentral43013.apk

    First noticeable issue for me was when given the option to log in via Google, the page was zoomed in without the option of zooming out, causing half of the page to be obscured, and then, when typing in my credentials, the page jumped around with every letter typed. I am using a droid DNA on 4.1.1, non rooted. I also noticed that in forums there is no option to imbed an image, and in threads where images were imbedded you just get the html tags and image source link.

    Also in the forums, I rather liked the feature where threads with unread replies are in bold. Whereas in the new app, all threads are titled in bold.

    Looking good, guys. I love the design.

    I'm not seeing the text editing (what I'm doing right now) auto-capitalizing after a new sentence is started. Here's a silly looking test: jebciwn. bsisncjw. hello. these. words. are. not. capitalizing. the. first. letter. after. a. period.

    Tested on other apps, confirmed it's not my phone. Droid RAZR Maxx, 4.1.2.
