Check Out The Latest Specs On Devices With “Phone Genie” for Android

One of the most useful sites for information regarding mobile devices is GSM Arena. This website is packed with the latest of the latest regarding upcoming, existing, and even old devices. You can find specs, reviews, and even compare devices side by side, which if you are trying to decide between a few options for your next purchase, is a very handy tool. This is a fantastic tool for any mobile enthusiast, but the only problem is that this is a website, and as such, when you are trying to access it via a mobile device, there are complications. For instance, the side by side comparison will force you, regardless of the browser that you are using, to start panning from left to right in order to see all the specs that you want to see. If you were praying for a mobile solution for your knowledge appetite, you can rest assured to know that XDA member Apptuners has come up with an app for this site. All the tools will fit comfortably in your screen without forcing you to pan, swipe, or do anything other than scrolling down. Phone Genie can access the full GSM Arena database, so you will literally have all the knowledge that you need at your fingertips.

The app is still in beta, but it is fully usable. If you want to try out the app, please leave some feedback for the dev.

This app presents the GSMArena content in a way that is suitable for your device screen. It also allows you to compare 2 devices side by side, without all the left-right-left panning headache. Please checkout the screenshots attached.

You can find more information in the original thread.
