The Retro League Android Application

About

In my spare time I co-host a podcast about classic video games called The Retro League. This is a little application for fans of the show. I don't expect it to get a ton of downloads or anything, it's just a way to connect with fans.

Promoting the podcast was one goal, the other was learning more about Android development. To build this application I had to sort out things like how to execute asynchronous tasks, integrate with the Facebook API, save files to the SD card, and launch the default media player. The source code is available in the download section if any of those are interesting to you.
