Since someone already released a deskeop app and someone requested a android app. I decided to release the android app I did a while ago, but just do not have the time anymore.
We have two apps, a direct for android development and another one that was converted from Craighton's iOS app (that is rejected by Apple) known as the "remix" version. The remix version has some things that do not work (and I do not handle the development of the app, only porting and compiling).
PLEASE NOTE: There are still some imperfections on the app and since I do not have a lot of time do continue develop it, I am putting more development on hiatus for a undetermined amount of time. Also with the remix app, I am only responsible for the library change and compile for Android, other things are not responsible by me.
Also: these are Android APK. To install it, here is a instruction on installing it http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/how_sideload_android_apps. Hopefully with some funding, I can submit it to the Google Play Store.

I'm downloading and installing it now.
Sorry in advance for the crappy pictures, my phone doesn't do screen-captures.
App Remix: UI isn't appealing, as you said it is a carryover from an iOS app so it does look similar to an iOS app. Some functions dont work, I get the error of "Look at the BT_screen_rssReader.java file" when I try to access Lockergnome on the updates side. Live video is not working, Social media works when you click the show in browser button. Overall, this is a fail. Yes it is a "Heavy Alpha", I get it, but yeah.
Main Version: UI isn't appealing also, but you can get to your action quickly and easily thanks to the large buttons. Everything works, I just don't get why when you click on something, you get sent to the webpage. It seems kind of redundant if you know the website, you can go to the website directly instead of using the app. Also, social media does not work, for example when I click on Chris's Facebook, I get sent to a black page. I give this app a good from me, but it still needs a bit more work. It's not ready for prime time, but I think you have something good here.
I'd download and work on the Main Version as the App Remix is a lot of work to do, and in my opinion is just not worth it. I uninstalled the App Remix, it's not worth it. Thanks @Craighton for working on it, I appreciate it. It sucks that it wasn't accepted on the App Store, maybe you can put it on the Cydia store, encourage us to jailbreak! It looks like a good iOS app, not a good Android app though.
I am using a HTC MyTouch 4G (HTC Glacier) running on Gingerbread 2.3.4.
Works okay with a tablet but the text doesn't really scale properly
Running a HP touchpad (Android 4.0.3)
edit: noticed a few scrolling issues as well as redraring issues when it comes to text (if you zoom in on a web page)
I recorded a video and uploaded it to youtube as an unlisted video http://youtu.be/TDa7LzZYfeA
Here's the app running under ICS (4.0.4 API 15)
Even Though I don't have an IRC client installed, a better message would be nice. Something like "You don't have an IRC client installed. Would you like to download one?" With a link to the Play store.

I'm not an android user. :( is there some way we can test the *.apk on some sort of emulator?
