Android MUD apps?

I was just wondering if anyone recommends a particular MD client that runs on android 3.1.

Re: Android MUD apps?

Blowtorch has been the frontrunner since it came out, but I'm not sure about 3.1 compatibility. My phone runs 2.3.something. Mukluk is a decent client, too, but not quite as good. There's also a couple of older ones that may or may not work with the latest droid software versions. Like Andro Mud or that client with the guy's initials. You can always search your phone's market yourself or do some online research. Opinions vary, and what's good to me might not work well for you or for the games you play.

I'm not sure about 3.1 compatibility either, but I agree with SnowTroll in regard to BlowTorch being the frontrunner. It's free, so why not download it and try it out? If you run into problems you can report them on the BlowTorch forums.

Re: Android MUD apps?

Did you end up trying BlowTorch? It is compatible with 3.1 and I can verify it works on a Xoom tablet and G-slate. The current version doesn't have many Honeycomb specific UI elements, but more tablet specific features are on the horizon. I think there may be a problem with sound notifications on tablets, but if you find any problems, post them on the BlowTorch forums so the developer can track and fix them.

The current version of BlowTorch gives you buttons, triggers, aliases, and more. The website has a lot of documentation which is useful for using special commands or modifying the XML - just make sure to back up your settings. For users with Swype pre-installed on their phone, you'll want to enable compatibility mode (under Menu > Input) so your backspace button works. Stupid pre-installed software that can't be updated by the devs...

Anyway, I'm really excited for the next version and all the new features that are coming to BlowTorch. I just hope that when it's released, I wont melt my device ^_^
