Skeptical Science Android App update

Posted on 7 October 2012 by John Cook

One of the most significant events in SkS history was when IT consultants Shine Technologies released the Skeptical Science iPhone app in February 2010. The immediate response to the release of the iPhone app was Android users crying "me too!" Shine Technologies very graciously obliged with the subsequent release of the Skeptical Science Android app in July 2010 (sorry Blackberry users, no happiness for you).

The boffins at Shine Technologies continue to work on the SkS apps. Their latest work is an update of the SkS Android App. Speciflcally, they've made the following updates:

  • A Recent News feature has been added. This retrieves the latest blog posts from the Skeptical Science RSS feed, allowing users to read our latest blog posts within the app (so you can read the posts offline once you've downloaded them onto your phone). It also flags unread articles.
  • The initial setup time has been decreased from around 20 seconds to ~2 seconds. Now that's what I call a tune-up!
  • The image viewer has been improved (this allows you to zoom in and rotate graphs and images within the rebuttals and blog posts).
  • The Skeptical Science logo appears in more places which can only be a good thing.
  • Some minor bug fixes

Many thanks once again to Danny Brain and the folk at Shine Technologies who did all this phenomenal software development pro bono, driven by their passion for the climate issue. Here are some screenshots of the new Recent News feature:

  1. "sorry Blackberry users, no happiness for you). ...oh. I must have misunderstood. I thought you were talking about the SkS app. :-) Have neither an iPhone or an Android phone, but kudos and thanks to the Shine Tech people for their contribution.
