After experiencing intermittent problems with our Android app, were back to using AppsGeyser to publish our application.

The app offers a very simple, easy to read layout which looks very similar to the WordPress application for Android. (see sample screens on the right)

The app lets you choose between two basic settings, mobile or full site mode. The

mobile setting is my favorite, it gives you the headlines for each story,  which you can then click to read the stories that are of interest. It makes it really easy to scan for new content and read with just a quick tap.

The full site mode, is a desktop browser like view of our site. If you have an Android phone with OS 2.1 or higher and want an easy way to follow us when your mobile give it a try, it’s a free download from the Android Market.

The utility is installed on a separate partition on the SSD drive that is accessed by pressing and holding the ‘option’ key during the boot-up process.

But what happens in the event that your internal drive and recovery partition become damaged or unreadable? Well Apple has you covered, it offers OSX Lion on a $69 USB drive. So why would anyone pay $69.00 for $29.00 Mac App Store download? Unless you don’t have access to a broadband Internet connection there is a better option, the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant.
