When I try to download, it downloads a .php file, where can I get the .apk

Tried it with both default browser and with chrome beta. Both download a file named download.php when I click on it, it just says can not open file.

I think that something may be happening with your web browser. Try to grab it directly from the product web site page here:

Recast help page (with download link)

Let me know if you have any troubles getting it from there, although it is the same exact download link from that page.

That's very odd behavior, since the original download worked out just fine in our testing. Let us know if this is a problem for anyone else and we can look at alternative means of hosting the Recast APK.

Thank you. Give it a whirl, try out all the different widgets, themes, locations, etc and let us know how it goes.

We really do appreciate the feedback as that is what will help us build Recast into a weather + widget app that more folks will want to use.

I went ahead and made an alternative download link for those folks having problems with the first link. The first post is edited to show both options for downloading the beta apk now.

Hopefully that helps some of you who were having problems.
