I have been working on a Android client for Dreamwidth and LiveJournal based sites and am wondering what you would look for from the post entry screen.

ETA (Oct 30, 2010):This poll is now closed, thank you.

ETA: The lack of security options as a choice in the poll was a total oversight *g*, I did totally think of that, and was of course going to include it.

Thank you.

I've got a HTC Desire with an LJ app on it... but I find what I really want the most is an app I can use to read entries, not write them. But I wonder if the LJ/DW API is suited for that at all.

Are you interested in developing a reading functionality in your LJ/DW app and not just posting?

If not, I might just make an LJ/DW reader app myself some time in the future. *is an Android dev* (albeit a very inactive one at the moment)

It would be good if the journal pages automatically forwarded to the light style in a mobile browser. I can do it myself of course, but it persists across the board.

The new LJ mobile site is full of fail, you have to click about ten times to read a comment thread.

OMG this. When it's simpler and easier to use the main site then it is to use the mobile version, you know there's a problem.

The one thing you seem to have left out of the polls is security settings! Must have those.

From: [personal profile] libitina
So I've just had my android for about a month now, but I love it a lot. And it's much easier to just use the regular web than I expected it would be.

What does an app offer that the is easier? Is it resource conservation so my battery lasts longer? Or is it mostly to minimize the periphery so that I can hit all the links without needing to enlarge the text for better aim?

Crossposting settings are a must for me. I change them entry-by-entry, and it would be nice if they were included.

I have a Droid and occasionally use it to browse/post to DW. I'd really love to see full mobile compatibility with DW (reading & posting), but am thrilled to see this first step being taken. Thank you so much!

An observation that not all Droid phones use the latest Android OS. I have a barely 3 months old Cliq XT and it's stuck on 1.5 still. :p Love the Droid OS and the phone itself though.

From: [personal profile] monsterqueen
I would probably have your babies if you could make an app that didn't force close every two minutes. I've been a dedicated Android user for two years across three phones (G1, Samsung Behold 2, Mytouch Slide)* and every app out there is failuriffic for LJ. I haven't looked for DW because I have been so disappoint by the quality in LJ apps.

*Yes, I do have phoneitis.

I have an HTC google phone and would happily test out your application for you. I have noticed the comments on apps at the android market and have notice the positive or negative feedback varies from brand of phone. So, am willing to be a tester for ya and give feedback if ya like!

Thanks !

I just took the leap from Windows Mobile to Android with an HTC/T-Mobile G2, and suddenly the idea of using my phone for DW (posting and reading/commenting) is a big, big deal. So I was happy to see this.

If I can be a tester for my particular device, I'd be happy to. Thank you for working on this project!
