Hello Everyone,

I joined the development team about a month ago and I've been working on a iOS app for this website to cover the core functionality (list management, series searching / info, and releases).

I am working on the Android version now. I'm less familiar with Android so I started with iOS first so it could be another few weeks before Android is ready for beta.

Here is a quick demo of the app: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IViFiiC-KgE

BETA IS CLOSED! Thanks to everyone who tested it.

Thanks,
QAZZY

I want to test it, but I can't, for now at least. My ipod touch is broken (T^T) but if the android version is out, then I will test it happily smile

Excellent work. I'm not an iOS guy by any means, but shoot me a message when you get a solid Android version running.

I wouldn't say I have any coding skills, really, but I have been using Android long enough that I should be able to easily test out some betas for you and do some write ups that should help development move along.

My current device is a Galaxy S III, so it should be able to run whatever you feel like throwing at it.

Probably a bit down the road, but I figure I'd throw my hat in there right away.

i have an ipod touch 5 and am beta testing it. is it ok if i give opinion here??
if it is ok
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the beta is working just fine but it lacks something to make more interesting like the forums and other features of mangaupdates. it's just my own opinion & i know this is just the beta so im sure you guys will do a great job when it's become an official app for apple and/or maybe someday for android as well
sorry im not really used to doing something like beta testing. sorry if i said something wrong biggrin

I have submitted the app to Apple, hope it gets approved soon. I have push notifications for new chapters built in so hopefully I get that working soon. Thanks for everyone who tested it. I'll be working on the Android version now.
