Fragmentation? What fragmentation?

With today’s release of our Revision3 Android App (version 1.1.2), we’ve successfully used the Android SDKs (out of the box, no special tweaking, we promise) to create a single Android application that runs across:

  • Android mobile devices, versions 2.x and higher
  • Android tablet devices, versions 3.x and higher
  • GoogleTV running Android 3.x and higher
  • Revision3 App running on Google TV 2.0
    Google TV 2.0

    The experience across all devices is optimized for the specific device: everything from thumbnails to the resolution of the video is optimized to the size, shape, user input device (finger, mouse or remote control) and bandwidth of the device that is running the application. Now that Logitech has released its gTV 2.0 update for the Revue this week, the Revision3 app is downloadable from the gTV Android Market – try it out, it looks gorgeous.

    We’re rolling out a native Amazon Kindle Fire App.

    I’m excited to announce that as of today, Revision3 is embracing Amazon’s new Kindle tablet and platform in a huge way. We’ve rolled out a spiffy new Revision3 app that looks and works great on the native Kindle Fire.

    We’ve been incredibly impressed with Amazon’s new Kindle. Sure, the $200 cost is great, but with a real 16×9 great looking screen, the Fire offers the ultimate media consumption device for Revision3’s viewers.

    Here at Revision3, our viewers have been adamant about wanting to watch our great content on every device from the smallest smart phone to the biggest smart TV. We’ve been working hard to make apps look and work great on Apple’s IOS, Android phones and tablets, smart TVs from Samsung, LG, Vizio and more – and now Amazon’s breakthrough Kindle Fire.

    Ultimately, we don’t want to limit our viewers to a specific or narrow set of devices. Amazon’s new Kindle Fire offers a great solution for many viewers – and we’re proud to be an integral partner at launch! So if you have a Fire, download our app and enjoy your favorite Revision3 shows on this great new device. But even if you don’t, rest assured that we’re committed to bringing you our content on whatever device you love.
