Thanks to the ever-awesome XDA Developers I now have a working version of Netflix on my Sony Xperia Arc! This is going to make my little boy very happy on the next car trip!
You should know the Netflix for Android APK is available here and that, at least in my case, it was not available in the Android Marketplace so this is the only way I know of to get it as of Aug 2011. Those who have an Xperia Arc or have tried one will know that movies look unbelievably awesome on its Bravia screen so go and get this installed ASAP if you can. Continue reading →
I’ve been wanting to toy around and learn the Android OS since I got my G1 phone a couple months ago. All the Google services work great on Android: GMail, Calendar, Maps, etc. However, Google has thus far fumbled on a decent “To Do” list. That’s why many people like myself are big users of rememberthemilk.com (aka “RTM”). I’m not the first person to wish for an RTM Android app. Their mobile site is okay, but a custom app is a must-have for something you use often. No one seemed to be delivering, so I made the “RTM Tasks” Android app myself (see below), leveraging the RTM API.
Since I got my HTC Dream (Gphone) I have been lost without a synchronized task list. Fortunately, a man by the name of Steve V (Vinsac I think) took the initiative and created a great app that integrates with Remember the Milk (https://www.rememberthemilk.com) – a free and awesome online tool for task management.
Just install Steve’s app called “RTM Tasks” from the Market on your gphone, provide it with RTM API access (it handles it for you) then you can interface with all of your tasks online. Very handy indeed.
