AndroidGuys Store Now Open!

With the first anniversary of AndroidGuys approaching, I’m extremely proud of where the site has come from and to what it has evolved into.  I’ve gotten to know some very cool people in the tech industry and I’ve been able offered some great opportunities.  Today sees us announcing one of the biggest yet – The AndroidGuys software and accessory store is now open!

To help kick off the event, we’re giving a 20% OFF coupon that is good on ALL SOFTWARE!  You can take advantage of the savings until November 15th!

Code: AndroidGuysOpen

I have all of you loyal fans and dedicated readers to thank for this incredible opportunity.  It seems hard to believe, but less than one year ago, we were averaging 15-20 visits a day.  Starting out, we were pleased as could be whenever someone would leave a comment on our site.  It amazed us that somewhere out there, a reader stumbled across our site.

I’d like to recap a few accomplishments and figures that have made us into your favorite site for Android news and opinion.

  • Over 2,400 daily subscribers via RSS (Feedburner)
  • Nearly 1,100 articles covering news, opinion, reviews and more
  • Over 3,300 comments
  • Featured in the New York Times
  • 1 week high of over 150,000 visits
  • 15 contributing writers over the year

The biggest driving factor behind AndroidGuys is that we want to help further the Android agenda.  We’re fans of the open source community and want to help it succeed.  I’ve said since day one that Android will be known for what it can do, as opposed to the iPhone, which is known for how it works.  Now, more than ever, we have a chance to help you guys see what can be done with Android.

The Android Market is but one source of getting software for your Android handset.  There are others already offering download, including AndAppStore, Handango, and OnlyAndroid.  I’m very excited to add the official AndroidGuys store in the mix!  The more options users have, the bigger the community gets.

So what are you waiting for?  Go ahead and start looking through the store!  In addition to some great Android applications, we offer accessories from vendors such as HTC, Golla, Sandisk, BlueAnt, Parrot, Plantronics, Jabra and many more!

If you are a developer looking to add your application to the store, then you’ll want to click here.

Thanks again to everyone who has helped to contribute to AndroidGuys’ success so far.  Now that Android has become a reality, we’re anxious to see what happens next!  The last year was but a prologue to AndroidGuys.  Today, we start Chapter 1!
