Exclamation iControl DCS - Android - interest check

It's here! Grab it while it's hot!

For the initial launch, switches and dials aren't in - so radios are out. They'll be coming soon as an additional in-app purchase.

Right now you can get live MFCDs, CDU and UFC. Grab the "all" package to get everything at a lower price than individual unlocks.

It's free to try so give it a shot! http://bit.ly/1hDt8pr

For those of you looking for just a CDU, you can get that now!

Feedback is welcome and encouraged. Updates will be coming soon. I'll do my best to get this up to par with the iPad app as soon as possible!

I would buy it, but not via android app store: they require credit card payment, which I don't own. However, I've seen many apps that allow upgrades to the full version via payPal payment or similar payment systems. So, if it comes (which I hope) then please consider alternative payment systems to google checkout.

At the moment I'm holding off to see what Ice Cream Sandwich makes of the phones and tablets already on the market.

I imagine (and hope) that Google will make the Android SDK more approchable and easier to use without having to do a bunch of goofy stuff to support all the different devices.

So for now the Android project is on hold

The bonus for that is that I get more time to refine the networking code and may have a pretty good frame rate solution for the next build, with less hit to the server CPU and all changes made to the server will affect any device this gets ported to. More FPS for everyone!

I've just got an Asus Transfromer Tablet and would love to try a version of iControl. Shame it's on hold, but I guess it's only a matter of time.

ryyy, the issue is that Android isn't a homogenous platform. (I'm saying this as an Android fan). It's a bit like PC's vs consoles. It's harder to program for PC than to program for console. Simple fact.

This sucks, I'm not buying an overpriced piece of shiny plastic for this app. Someone give us an Android version.
