WP Android Shortcode: a WordPress plugin to add links to the Android Market

Warning: Illegal string offset 'href' in /home/robotmedia/robotmedia.net/wp/wp-content/plugins/wp-android-shortcode/wp-android-shortcode.php on line 30

Warning: Illegal string offset 'title' in /home/robotmedia/robotmedia.net/wp/wp-content/plugins/wp-android-shortcode/wp-android-shortcode.php on line 34

Linking to Android Market apps is somewhat problematic. Because Android Market links only work from Android devices, the most common way to link to an Android app is to offer a QR code of the app link that can be scanned with an app like Barcode Scanner.

However, when browsing from an Android device, a direct link to the Android Market is preferred. What works well for Android devices does not suit the rest and viceversa.

To solve this problem in our website we have created a very simple WordPress plugin called WP Android Shortcode. The plugin uses the [android] shortcode to convert Android Market links to the best option based on the platform. Android devices get a direct link to the Android Market, while the rest get the corresponding QR code. In both cases our nifty Android Market badge is used to clearly indicate that this is a link to an Android app.

For example, the following shortcode…


…is rendered as:

You can also specify the app name like this:

[android href=”market://search?q=pname:net.robotmedia.findtherobots” title=”Find the Robots!”]

…which is rendered as:

Android Market badge

We encourage you to download the WP Android Shortcode plugin from WordPress.org and use it on your website.

Find the Robots!

Can you find all the robots hidden in this app? Unlock them all and share your favorites with your friends.

Google features Scott Pilgrim in the Android Market

Since August 22th Google is recommending Scott Pilgrim to all owners of Android devices. The free sampler of the Scott Pilgrim mobile comic is one of the 15 apps featured on the Android Market front-page.

Described as “pure awesome” by AndroidHeadlines.com and rated 4.5/5 by Android users, the Scott Pilgrim Android app is initially available in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and UK.

Scott Pilgrim’s precious little app is published by the innovative HarperCollins imprint, Fourth Estate, and developed by Robot Comics/Robot Media, the leading comics provider for Android.

Robot Comics has translated Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic book to mobiles through movement, sound and vibration, creating an original reading experience tailored for Android devices.  An experience which also becomes interactive and social when readers discover secret content carefully hidden in the scenes of the comic, as well as use an in-app commenting system that utilizes Twitter and Facebook to share the clues.

Scott Pilgrim is the second mobile comic featured by Google in their Android marketplace. The first one was the indie hit Robot 13 by Thomas Hall and Daniel Bradford, also produced by Robot Comics, which has been downloaded by almost 200,000 Android users to date -a number rarely reached by print editions.

With a launching price of £3.49 per volume, well below the print version, the Scott Pilgrim app is on its way to become the best-selling mobile comic for Android devices, and the first of many mainstream comic titles that finds a new audience in the Android Market.

The Scott Pilgrim app is also available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Visit http://www.scottpilgrimtheapp.com for more information.
