    Like the title says, the OnLive Streaming App for Android is now available in the Android Market!

    OnLive is a cloud based gaming service, and now you can enjoy some of OnLives Cloud Games from your Android 2.3 or above phone or tablet!

    Note: You may not be able to find in public market (or at least I couldn't, I had to use a link in an email that OnLive sent me). Will post market link soon.

    Edit1: Market link app if you can't find by searching market: https://market.android.com/details?i...m_medium=email

    Edit2: You will also get a free copy of Lego: Batman within 24 hours of sign in on the phone/tablet.

    Works fine on my T-bolt, as long as I'm getting good data speeds. Can't connect my OnLive controller to it though Is this a Sense problem? Looking forward to play Arkham City on the go, on my Galaxy Nexus

    I do not know if this is a Sense problem. I do not have a controller to test, as I use it with my PC only (And as of now Atrix 2). Hoping it will be compatible with 3rd party controllers as well as 1st party. Can't wait to start playing my other games in my library on the go though!

    After logging in, the screen is pink and grainy. Any ideas why? The droid X2 is on the compatibility list.

    There have been some issues with the blacks changing to pinks on some certain devices, OnLive is working on a fix as we speak.

    I did some research and I found that OnLive released a new version of the controller very recently that is able to connect to mobile devices along with the Micro Console and computers. Maybe you have the older version controller?

    Yeah, I thought it might be just a bug that needs fixing. I wonder why they listed the app under the compatibility list when it doesnt work right yet though. Cant wait for the fix.

    Oh yeah, I have the one that came with the Micro Console. Guess I need to plunk down some dough to play on the road This is so fantastic though, as long as the controller isn't overpriced I'll do it.

    I was wondering if anyone knew...when you are in the app, is there a close or exit button? I found that the only way to exit is to press the home button but then it says in the notification bar that it is "paused." Does this mean its still running in the background or is it actually closed?

    Go to the menu (I think you can hit back to initiate). Scroll left and right until you find an, "Exit Onlive," option. Just pressing home freezes it.

    At $49.99 (i think thats the price) its over priced IMO. I think it should be at most $39.99, but other then that, this is very fantastic!

    As Wes said, if you are not in game press the back button until a menu pops up, one of the options is "exit onlive" click that and then click it again when the next pop up shows up.

    alternitively you can press the onlive icon mid game and the same menu should pop up.

    You can also wait 10-15 minutes and it will automatically disconnect.

    Ordered the controller I hope it'll be worth it. I think if I had a tablet it would be, but the client drains my T-bolt's battery too much

    It doesn't drain my phones battery too badly, but I have an Atrix 2 and it doesn't have LTE, so that's a factor...

    Yeah... playing over WiFi doesn't drain the battery for me, but my home WiFi is fairly slow. Playing over LTE is flawless, zero noticeable lag (although technically it's still present). I really should stay on WiFi, but... It's sooooooooo tempting to play on 4G I'll just buy a spare battery for my GNex.

    Oh yeah, what's your gamertag or username or whatever OnLive calls it?

    Gamestop and Chevy are teaming up with OnLive to offer a free month of PlayPack membership. All you need to do is be a registered Gamestop user (free) and enter your code on the link that Gamestop provides. The PlayPack features over 100 games, quite a few of which are touch-enabled.

    Also, onlivefans.com is a good resource for OnLive news, should you really get into OnLive.

    Has anyone else tried pairing a PS3 controller to this app? I tried it using the sixaxis app. It DID work to some degree. I got it working pretty well with Lego Batman using the keymapping in the last post here by salfer:

    New Onlive app and controllers - xda-developers

    I tried the trial version on batman arkham city but the same key mapping didnt work other than the left analog stick. Im assuming the controller just has to be mapped right in the sixaxis app.

    My WiFi Connection is 25MBPS down and 25MBPS up, so I prefer WiFi over my 12MBPS down 7MBPS up AT&T "4G" XD

    My Gamertag or whatever is oct2006, same as AC username.

    Let me know if you get anything working other than Lego Batman. I really want to play Batman Arkham City but its "controller only."
