[APP] Phone Genie - A GSMArena app for Android to look up device specification

Whenever I need to look up on a phone specification, I automatically visit They have a large set of devices in their database and the data is presented in a pleasing manner as well. But the problem is that they don't have a mobile optimised page and as a result it is tough to checkout their website from a phone. To read the complete specification, you need to pan from left to right to left. And this worsens when you are trying to compare 2 devices side by side.

With Phone Genie I aim to provide a solution to this issue. This app presents the GSMArena content in a way that is suitable for your device screen. It also allows you to compare 2 devices side by side, without all the left-right-left panning headache. Please checkout the screenshots attached.

Phone Genie is available on Android Market for free for all devices with 1.6 and above. This is only our second app so there will be bugs and we got a lot to learn. Please try the application and post your comments. I hope you guys will find it useful.

2. Ad-free version at a cost

I would sincerely like to thank author egzthunder1 who wrote about Phone Genie in the XDA blog. It sure gave the opening I never dreamed of.

I also realise that many of you guys tweeted and retweeted, passed the word to friends regarding the app. Phone Genie crossed 3000 downloads in the first 3 days. It may not be as big as some of the apps posted here but this being my 2nd app, the confidence this download count gives is immense. Big thanks, guys.

@nicky041192, I thought the app being around 350 KB will comfortably fit within internal memory. If the data part gets bigger and bigger, I shall enable App 2 SD. And I would love to offer an ad-free paid version but I am not sure if GSMArena will like the idea. Moreover Android developers from India cannot sell apps yet.
