Atari 2600 Manual Database for Android
« on: August 13, 2016, 16:11:57 PM »
Atari Age user tschak909 has created a new app for Android devices that has manuals for Atari 2600 games.  The beta version was just released and it is available for free.  Here is tschak909's post...

Hello, everybody, I am here to formally announce the beta release of the Atari 2600 Manual Database for Android Devices.
 
It can be acquired here via Google Drive:  https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0BxBzWnEPRL2HU0hrTlV5NnVMaWs&export=download
 
It has the following features:
 
* Easily view over 300 Atari 2600 game manuals, in a very intuitive, gestural manner, complete with pinch zoom, and pan features.
* Title search for manual titles.
* Go To Page feature for larger manuals
* completely self contained, no Internet connection needed, after install.
* Works on any Android device running Android 4.0.3 or later.
 
More features are coming, but I wanted to get this out, so that everyone could use and comment on it.
 
One bug I know for sure, is that the About action in the Options menu can't be seen (white on white text), I am trying to track down the problem.
 
Credit and thanks to everyone who originally scanned and collated the manual data over the years for the benefit of the community, is expressed in the About activity of the app.


Going to the final frontier, gaming...
