What is it ?
Its just a simple little fun android app that connects to the CSDB webservice and grabs a random release, showing some basic info (Name,Rating,Type and year) and the screenshot.
What are the requirements ?
you need an Android device (Obviously) and it must have connectivity to get to the webservice and send emails.
I developed and tested on my LG Optimus.
There is only portrait orientation. I have no idea what its going to look like on a bigger screen.
How do I use it?
Its simple, just press the little "Get One"(the cassette) button to get a release. If you like it, you can press the email button (The envelope) to send a link to your email address)
If you want to go back (just one release) you can click the blue back-arrow button.
Why is there a cooldown timer?
people dont like it when you hit their web-services too hard and might block you.. :P I added the cooldown timer to try to control load.
How do I change the Default Email address.
Press the menu button on your device.
Why wont the email work?
I'm using the default email activity, if that works it should work in my app, if not, no idea :(
What if I find a bug ?
Drop me a line .. I'll be happy to have a look at it :)
