    Hi all,

    I've been working on an app for Android, so you can view setup's submitted by folk, from the comfort of your sofa. Not everyone (myself included) has their PC near their TV. So it's a nice way to see setups, without have to print stuff off, write it out, or generally move.

    I've attached a screenshot, i just have a question, is this actually something the community would use?

    Would it be good to submit your setups via the app, for everyone to see?

    Please let me know, if so, i'm hoping to release it in the next day or two. (I'm using Setups posted on this forum, with full credit to the authors)

    EDIT:

    Well, here it is. Very early version. Use your smartphone (Android, iPhone, iPad, etc)

    http://spikedsoftware.co.uk/f1/

    I've only got Bahrain, Australia, Malaysia, China & Spain setup. I'm going to get the Submit your own setup built, then let the community take care of the rest.

    Feedback is welcome :) Good or bad.

    Iphone app would be cooler .....lol.

    Great idea though, and maybe a start of something more.

    I have been working with a few coders, and we are discussing how to incorporate Apps into games.

    Nice idea. =)

    And I probably would use it even though I play on the PC, it would save me some tabbing!

    Great, I'll try and release it tomorrow.

    iPhone app will have to wait i'm afraid, i refuse to pay Apple $99, to develop free software.

    Of course it's a free app! It's actually a mobile website, thus catering for the iPhone population.

    Really sorry guys, i've been struggling to work on it, terrible weather has really cocked up my week. Hoping to release at least something tonight.
