Meet Droid Week, a new app gallery from Android and Me

Today we are happy to announce Droid Week, the newest addition to the And Me Network. Droid Week is an app, game & widget gallery showcasing the best that Google Android has to offer. Each week (Monday AM) we post a new featured download. Each entry will contain four screens, a short description, download links, a QR code, reviews from the market, a poll to vote the app up or down, and twitter banter.

Droid Week is going to power our (sometimes neglected) weekly download feature here on Android and Me. Each week in the left sidebar you’ll find a short blurb and QR code ready for scanning. Once a month, we’ll name an app, game or widget as our featured download of the month (based on the voting over at Droid Week).

Droid Week is also sporting a fully featured mobile version. Visit any of the pages on your Android device for all the great Droid Week content on the run.

Droid Week will depend on the Android and Me community to nominate apps and drive the discussion surrounding the selected apps (through Twitter and our forums). Each week, the user that nominates the selected app will be given credit on the Droid Week homepage (along with a userpic and link). Users that consistently contribute will be rewarded with custom titles and privileges.

Droid Week is launching as part of the And Me Network, our new over-brand that is going to support all our future Android developments. We’ve got a handful of new Android sites in the pipeline and utilizing the And Me Network will allow rapid community growth and exposure (that previously would’ve taken months of slow building). Also launching today as part of the network is the Android and Me Store (more information to follow).

We hope you enjoy Droid Week and eventually it becomes an integral part of separating the wheat from the chaff in the Android market. If you’d like to get in touch to suggest an app or ask a question, you can message @droidweek on Twitter or come join us in the Android and Me Forums.

    How will you handle downloads via the mobile version of the site?

    Nice work by the way.

    • Clark Wimberly

      On the mobile site the download link will take you straight into the market (I even included the new analytics tracking in the URL so devs can see where the downloads are coming from).

    I am really new to the droid community but you guys definitely have one of the best networks for getting great android information out there. Thanks for all of the hard work!

    Good site, but its design is way to big. all the info could easily fit within a single laptop screen without scrolling.

    I think Droid Week is a great idea. App reviews really help steer my application choices. Thanks.

    I’m sad that the first two Droid Week choices didn’t expose anything I hadn’t already tried… Imeem and now Flixster? Not that they’re bad apps…
