    Can't stay a moment off TechPowerUp? Have school/college already figured out, and find the class boring? Find your daily commute over public transport worth something more than social networking and repetitive gaming? Do zombies run the IT at your work, that blacklist sites you love? We know how you feel, so do we. So we figured out we could put TPU on your Android smartphone, with more features, and to run without a bloated mobile web-browser. Presenting the very first TechPowerUp Android application! We started this project a few weeks ago, after gauging your interest in a recent front-page poll.

    The TechPowerUp application is now on the Android Market. It is heavily optimized for small-screens, including screen scaling, and performance. It gives you access to our News, Reviews, and Forums; complete with all our content. Don't just read our stuff, comment on them. Now you're never too far away from your TPU.

    Awesome!! Just downloaded and started using it on my Arc S. I really like it!! saves me having to open up my browser everytime just to get to TPU!

    the layout looks really good. a lot of thought has gone into creating this app and overall it looks very polished.

    thank you for all your hardwork for those who participated in making it.

    right now android 2.2+ because it uses multi-touch for the image viewer. pre-2.2 users speak up so i know if it'll be worth the extra work

    You should make it so we can log in via menu and stay permanently logged in.

    Pics on the forums don't scale... Yet, but I'm sure that's one of many reasons its still beta.

    Other than that its great. Way faster than using browser and/or RSS feed app.

    Oh.... Idea, when we click on tpu links in emails can you make it an option to open in tpu app?

    Works flawlessly on my rooted DoomKernel Xperia Play 2.3.4 :D

    Wished there was case mod gallery in the homepage though :D

    Love the way you swipe the screen to go to next page in the reviews part.

    App works well for me on HTC Desire 2.2. Although it would be nice to have the option to comment directly while viewing news stories. At the moment you have to access the forum option and navigate to the appropriate thread tied to the news article.

    Basically this, works great on my EVO 3D but a reply option on the news comments or a link to the thread wouls be useful. If there is one then I take that back.
