Video Game Price Charts App now available on Android Market!

The same day as my RF Generation app, I’m also releasing a Video Game Price Charts app!

Quickly look up current market prices for over 26,600 video games from your Android device! Avoid getting ripped off at pricy secondhand gaming stores, or confirm that you’ve dug up a diamond in the rough at a garage sale. You can even scan a barcode for a speedy lookup, no typing necessary.

As my second app, this one went much, much faster than the RF Generation app. Development time from start to finish was about two and a half weeks. I did some of my first work with Sqlite and AsyncTasks, and now I’ll be implementing what I learned in version 2.0 of the RF Generation app. I don’t have anything more planned for this one, but if any suggestions come in, I wouldn’t mind adding another feature or two.

This app uses jsoup to parse HTML, CWAC EndlessAdapter to display browse/search results, AChartEngine to display price charts, and IntentIntegrator for integration with ZXing’s Barcode Scanner.
