Anyone interested in an SMBC Android App?

Postby firebluetom » Fri May 30, 2014 1:14 am

I've been working on learning Android programming and have put together a small Android application which mainly allows users to view SMBC comics.
This has not been released in the Play store as I was working on it for my personal use and its not even close to finished, all you can do is view the comics.
If anyone is interested in taking a look at it, it can be downloaded from github: https://github.com/firebluetom/smbc2/blob/master/bin/SMBC2.apk?raw=true
I'd love any suggestions for features or such, been a big fan of SMBC for a while now.
The main goal would be to bring these features into the comics:
-Favorites
-Tagging
-Rating
-Searching

Do you have permission from Zach to do that? Because some creators don't appreciate people make apps of their product. Even if all you do is show SMBC comics, you're still taking away ad revenue.

I completely agree, I have no intention of taking money away from Zach for all the hard work he does.
I will email Zach for his permission. If this app somehow gains popularity, I would intend on adding ads to it so that Zach can profit off it.

Zach didn't give permission. App is not going to be developed and released.

I applaud you doing the right thing and asking. Then responding in a mature way. Well done.

Oh. I did the same thing! I was making a SMBC app, as I am new to android development, and I considered releasing it. I emailed Zach but he never answered.
