PewPew Beta, for Android

Currently my work has shifted from developing PewPew to porting it to several different phone OS. I'll try to write a post later about the process of porting, because there's lot's of interesting bits I've discovered.

A few weeks ago I submitted a version of PewPew for the Bada OS to Samsung, but it got rejected because my website contained an image of an iPhone and a link to the App Store. At first I was surprised, but they simply don't want to have iPhone advertisement flaunted at their customers, which is understandable.

In the meanwhile I ported PewPew to Android and improved many things, and because I got rejected, those improvements will get to be in the initial Bada OS release as well (I try to look on the bright side of things).

Regarding the Android version, I don't know how well my app works on other phones, so I am starting a beta process. I want to get PewPew perfectly right before I submit it to the Android Market: I am a firm believer that first impressions counts.

If you want to test it, here is the .apk.
