There’s a new app from Hosted Games available for Android called Hosted Games. It’s an “omnibus app,” a single app that collects all of our Hosted Games titles in one place. It’s just like the iOS omnibus we’ve had for more than a year now, but now it works on Android.
If you have an Android phone, please give it a try!
- Soon, we’ll also release a “Choice of Games” omnibus app for the Google Play Store. We’re going to let the HG omnibus sit for a week or so, then release the Choice of Games omnibus when we’re pretty sure we’ve fixed major bugs.
