Ron Paul Android App Released!

Hi guys,
I published the Android version of the Ron Paul App today. I've only been able to test it on one phone, so I hope it works alright.

I hope you guys like it, and please let me know if/when you find bugs.

The App force closes on startup

on my nexus 1. Here is the offending catlog

I also develop apps for android, and have a few on the market. Drop me a line if you want any help developing the RP app on this platform.

Having technical difficulties

Just downloaded today for my HTC shift. Keep getting an error when I attempt to open program.

The application Ron Paul (processcom.epage.android.ronpaul)has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
Sent an error report when prompted as well.
Hope this gets fixed, would be great to have a nice RP app for when I'm out tabling.

if anyone is reading this and your at cpac ,please

post! there is an opp. to get this app into the hands of as many RP faithful as we can, when the time comes this tool can really help us crush the competition!!

It's pretty buggy right now

Sorry about that. I figured that since most of it was working I should just release it. I'm hoping that getting feedback from everyone on different phones will allow me to fix stuff faster.

Landscape Mode?

Just got it running on my Samsung Intercept (Virgin Mobile).
It seems to be working at first try.
Does it support landscape mode? I rotate the phone and nothing happens?

that's not a feature yet

The app is a combination of stuff I can do and stuff that I had to outsource to a third party. That's why I needed money to get the apps developed. Unfortunately, I could only afford to outsource a few features and I had to prioritize them.

What I plan to do is create a donations page and allow people to donate money for specific app upgrades, such as detecting landscape mode on iPhones and Android.

I would also like to get push notifications, event planning/coordinating, canvassing tools, fundraising tools, and some kind of a phone bank system.

If you check out www.mybarrackobama.com, I basically want to recreate those tools for Ron Paul on mobile phones.


No biggie, just makes the web pages easier to read sometimes. I'll just use a proper browser for those. Otherwise, "Thumbs Up".
It did crash or something a couple times, but can't pin it down yet, just got it.

hey great job DAN!! hope your well out in OZ

dont forget to update comments on Digg and the freedom forum. People read that stuff....

and for all of you who digg PLEASE DIGG THIS ONE HARD!!




I've been horrible at posting those links since the beginning huh? Haha. Thank you for being there with the links though. I always hoped we could get a bunch of diggs but it didn't seem to catch on. Maybe now that we are on Android and iPhone we can make some more noise.

Thanks again Jdayh for your help.

The Android version is far from perfect, but I'm still working on it and my goal is to make it fully awesome by the end of the year.

In a similar vein, this link will download a PDF that can be viewed on iPhone, iPad or computer.

The app is getting bashed already

The only reviews are 1 star and one of the guys says it won't work at all on Droid X. I might have to take it down and work on it some more.

Almost all the reviews for the iphone version are 5 stars and I was hoping we could do the same on the Android.

What Does It Do?

and how do I find it in the Droid market? What's its title?

It's sort of like the dailypaul for mobile phones

If you have an android phone, you just click on the "market" button and search for Ron Paul. You will then get an app on your phone that allows you to follow Ron Paul News, follow Austrian Economic news, follow Ron Paul's Twitter, get activism updates and more.

I have to admit...

The Android version is missing a few features that the Apple version has, such as notifications for activism/forum posts, but those features will be added as soon as possible.
