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.
