App renamed to “Bollywood DumbCs”

The newly renamed app is available on the Google Play store. Why, you ask? Many reasons. The plan to own the “desi” category on the play store is not exactly on a roll when a search reveals content we want to stay away from and don’t want to represent. And only one download over 2 days didn’t help.

Added “support” (read screenshot) for 10-inch tables. Was not able to get the DDMS screenshot feature to work on Mac. Resorted to screen captures. May have to take the plunge and get a real device.

Check it out.
