There are some excellent ‘AAA’ tier games by huge development houses that offer fun, and, most of the time, in-app purchases. There is no doubt that some of these games are great. However, at XDA we like to keep an eye on the little guy. Some of the more successful Android developers have started out as the little guy.

Unofficial XDA TV App Brings Azrienoch’s Face to Your Tablet!
Can’t get enough of XDA TV Personality Azrienoch‘s pretty little face? You just might be in luck, as XDA forum member nathanpc has developed a cool app that lets you get your tablet-optimized dose from the comfort of your favorite large-screened device. While this application is currently designed only for tablets, it may be released for phones at a later time.
This app was originally intended to be made into a web app. However, due to problems with how the Android browser handles the HTML5 video tag, it was made into a full application. In the words of the developer:
Now you can have all the XDA TV videos wherever you go using this application. At the time it’s limited to tablets(since I got my Galaxy Tab last week and I wanted to play with some coding for it). I need people testing if this works and how it works on Honeycomb tablets(since I don’t have one to test).
I’ve been working on this for a week. Making the layout using HTML and CSS3 was easy, but I got a lot of problems while trying to make the code work on Android, so I took a bit more to match the code for Android. At the time I can’t find another way to open up the videos without firing up the browser to redirect to the Video application, the OS has a lot of problems with HTML5 Video tag so I’ve done it like this.
Continue on to the application thread to start getting your tablet-optimized Azrienoch dose today!
