If you have an Android phone with version 2.2+ of the OS ( that supports Adobe AIR ) you can download and install a beta version of the update to the RunPee app – version 1.1.0.
It is very easy to install the app. First, on your phone, you need to go into your settings and enable applications from unknown sources: settings -> applications -> unknown sources ( Allow installation of non-Market applications. ) Note: the menus names may be slightly different on your phone.
Now simply download the RunPee.apk file to your phone by browsing to: polygeek.com/air/runpee.apk <- This is my developer blog. For some reason I can’t download .apk files from the server that hosts RunPee.com.
When the download starts you can simply pull your notification bar down from the top and see the download progress. When the download is complete simply press it and you will be asked if you would like to install this application. Say yes and you’re off and running. At this point you may want to go back into your settings and turn off the Allow unknown sources for security reasons.
The main thing that I’ve added to this version is access to the RottenTomatoes.com data. But this is only for the latest movies. Just select one of the recent releases from the startup screen and at the bottom of the “peetime” screen you’ll see a “Movie Info” button with icons above it. If there is a RottenTomato icon there then when you click on the button you’ll go to a screen that gives you the option to see all the extra info for the movie – youTube videos, RottenTomato ratings, Twitter comments about the movie.
I have also made a few cosmetic changes here and there – yes I know it’s still not very slick but I’m not a designer so it’s the best I can do. 🙂
Hopefully I fixed more bugs than I created. But if you notice anything please let me know in the comments. I’m going to take your feedback and make any needed changes and then on Monday I’ll submit the update to Android/Apple.
