To install it get it on your tablet somehow by either putting the zip on your sdcard or just direct download it then run xbmc and go into system\addons and choose "Install from zip" and find where you put it

I'm surprised as hell that you people are even trying to use it on phones at the moment
XBMC really is designed for tv use currently there are 2 touch screen skins (made by me again) but they still suck on something as small as a phone you really need a tablet at least for it to work half decent.

I guess its a gimmick factor for now that you can actually run it. But don't judge it too harshly unless your using it the way its meant to be on a TV

Its part of the reason why we didn't just ship out apk's or put it straight onto the "Play Store" because its still got a lot of development to go before it really a daily use app. And everyone would just grab and install all the pre-compiled ones without even reading any informational posts about it and complain that its crap when really the main reason the source code is out is so other developers can help us make it lots better for the day it hits the play store

Thats just the way XBMC rolls develop in the open and encourage other people to help make it better

The app is free and open source so I assume it's okay to post the apk here

Is the touch screen theme installed? I can get it to launch but I can't seem to control anything on my NookColor, was wondering if that might be the issue.

Also, where does the app store its settings? The .XBMC folder (in Linux) or the XBMC folder in applications data (on Windows) where the repositories addons and themes are stored.
