    I'm beginning to develop an android app that will display information on each set of Pokemon TCG.
    If it were to be complete, or at least show some major progress, would you pay $.99 for it? Would you actually have a use for it?
    It is most likely going to start as a free app, I'm just curious.

    I have a teeny tiny beta for download so you can see what I mean. Things will likely change in the future such as layout, images, etc. I'll make some custom logos, and have set icons instead of text for the set selector if it looks better.
    The grayed-out options are just a possibility, I am not sure if I can implement those things, but I will try after the database is finished. For now it is known as Pokemon TCG Viewer.

    Progress
    Base Set #001-010
    Jungle #001-002

    Downloads
    Beta v.01 : Mediafire (COMING SOON, I PROMISE

    App Inventor. I'm picking up SDK development as well, when I learn that I would like to build this from scratch.

    It would probably easier than using AI. I hate having to use a single screen. :

    Just to warn you the Pokemon Company recently DMCA all the Pokedex apps in the Android Market so if you try putting it there it will be taken off in no time. There are third party markets you can sell your app from, of course, but it won't receive nearly as much attention.

    Probably never, Nintendo has never made stuff for other "companies" (in this case, Google), only for their own things like Nintendo DS.
    I figure I'll probably set up a domain and site, have the download there, and give a donate option, but leave it completely free with all features unlocked even without donating.
    It's called donating for a reason, it shouldn't be to get special privileges. That bothers me about some apps that say "donate version" haha.

    Anyways, I'm holding off on the beta for now. I want to have at least a set + the Wizards promos set up to look at. (:
