Sorry I've had to post here because I've only just signed up to the forum.  I've been working on an Android App to retrieve Bitcoin price information from Bitcoin Charts and thought I'd make it available to everyone.  Hopefully you may find it useful or may want to comment.
   
The App connects to Bitcoin Charts service on start up and downloads the current prices.  If you bring up the menu you can manually update the prices and selecting an exchange displays the full details of the exchange.  Bitcoin Charts request that updates occur at a maximum of every 15 minutes but since this is a manual process I don't think that will be a problem.  In the next version I want to look at automatically updating every 15 minutes, keeping a history on the phone.  I'd also like to have a favourites list and the ability to configure alarms for prices rising or falling beyond a configurable threshold.  I've tested the app on 2.2, 2.3 and 1.6 using the emulator.

It can be downloaded from the link below where you will also find a couple of screenshots:

or using the short URL

I'm afraid you will need to enable Third Party Apps to install until I get a Market Account.  I've kept the permissions to a minimum though.

   
If you like this App, find it useful and want to keep me motivated working on it then please consider donating whatever you think it is worth to you :

Looks nice.
Maybe you could add a filter so that people could define which exchange rates (currency pair) they want to see.

Looks cool Smiley I'd like an iPhone app that could make trading easier but it'd be impossible to get through Apple's screening process heh.

works great on EVO 4G

This account was a fraudulent account created by a girl in Melbourne, Australia. There is no point messaging this account, continue with reversing all paypal transactions.

Very nice, why not adding it to Android Market?

I've just started working on a Widget, I don't get a lot of free time but I'll try and get one working as soon as I can.

As for the Android Market, I'm not currently signed up for it.  I'll look at doing this too as soon as I get time.  I does cost to sign up for but it's not a lot, about the value of 1 BTC if I remember correctly.  I understand is feels much safer installing from the Market rather than some link in a forum.

Works nice on the Advent Vega tablet, although I am using a custom ROM if that makes any difference or not.

Nice work

The app appears to have stopped working today.  I've just about got to the bottom of the problem and will try to release an update later.  If you wish you can you use my Google Group to track this at:

http://groups.google.com/group/lostdroids/

When its resolved I will post here and to the group.

Thank you,

J

Issue resolved.  bitcoincharts.com which generates the data used by my app have stopped supplying the number of trades.  I'm not sure why at this stage but my error handling didn't deal with this.  There is a new version at the address below which resolves this:
