Cthulhoid 1.0 -
Finally, after a long hiatus, Cthulhoid 1.0 has now arrived at the Google Play Store (it might take a few hours before the update is visible, though).
Cthulhoid Re-imagined -
Adam Holsten did a very lovecraftian iOS redesign of Cthulhoid. I especially like the tentacles.
I was happy to see that Cthulhoid was recently mentioned over at the Lovecraft eZine, which is an awesome resource for information and fiction related to all things Lovecraft. But if you follow me you probably know that already.
Regardless, please consider supporting Mike, editor of the Lovecraft eZine, who is battling Fibromyalgia.
If you are having problems opening the eBooks, this is very likely because your eReader software has trouble opening the EPUB files (which are contained within the app and copied to the SD card to make them available to other software), for whatever reasons. If this keeps happening, please try a different eReader software (such as the free Aldiko reader) and check in your system settings which app is configured for opening EPUB eBooks by default.

It appears that archive.org is currently down or having problems which causes downloading audio files in the app to fail with a misleading error message reporting an internal error. Downloads should work again once archive.org is up again. I will fix the error message in the next version.
The Cthulhoid App in Android Market
If you have any suggestions, wishes or ideas for the further development of Cthulhoid, you are invited to post them to my forum at UserVoice.
I switched to one of the pre-baked themes for this blog since I didn’t like the look after playing around with CSS but I’m not sure it will stay this way…
While I use the Android emulator as well as the devices I own to test the app under various configurations, I obviously can’t reproduce all flavors of Android that are out there, so please let me know if you have any problems running the app, so that I can improve the experience for everyone. Thanks in advance!
