If you're like me, you are a hardcore consumer of all things Drupal and have the desire to keep your finger on the pulse of the Drupal community at large. When I'm at my computer I can quickly read through Planet Drupal to find out what is new and interesting. Browsing it from my Android device however is not such a quick process, with many formatting issues arising not only from the the feed itself, but also when clicking through to sites that are not optimized for mobile.

To solve this problem, I've written a clean and easy reader app for Planet Drupal. Use the QR code to the right to get it or search "planet drupal" to find it in the Android Market.

The goals of the app are simple:

  1. allow anyone to quickly read through the headlines; and
  2. legibly format the articles for mobile.

Open the app and it will display the most recent headlines from front page of Planet Drupal. Press a headline to go read the article. Long press to choose between regular and mobile formatting.

There you have it. Planet Drupal - Simple, fast, and easy to read on Android.
