Android Around the World: ABC Mobile Announced in Australia

abc_logoSorry guys, it’s not that ABC.  We’ll have to continue to wait and see if we’ll ever get LOST on our Android handsets.  Today, we’re talking about The Australian Broadcasting Company and their new mobile application for the Android and iPhone platforms.

Announced today, ABC’s specifically designed the website for mobile screen sizes.  The app/site promises to deliver sports, news, and entertainment. In addition ABC will offer localized information like weather, movie showtimes, and radio schedules.

The ABC is already a leading provider of digital media content in Australia.  But we are now delivering even more with this significant move onto the mobile platform. ABC Mobile provides yet another way for Australians to access reliable, quality content wherever and whenever they choose. – Managing Director Mark Scott

Look for the app in the Android Market as a free download.

    This service doesn't seem to work from Australia. When I enter an Australian mobile number which are all of the form 614xxyyyyyy, the web site gives this message Error Please enter a valid mobile phone number and try again. Tip: Don’t forget to include country code and exclude the first zero of your mobile number. (e.g. 614121234) Did you try using this service from the USA?
