Pinoy Jokes Android App

Sometime late 2011, I have been looking for a jokes app on the Android Market, specifically a Filipino one. I found only one and before you can read jokes, you have to pay. I wanted to make one but I did not have much time to code for it then.
Last weekend, while waiting for my officemates to get back, I planned to spend some time developing an Android App. I checked the Android Market and found out there are still no new Pinoy jokes apps so I decided to finally develop it. I used HTML5, CSS, Javascript, JQuery Mobile, and of course, Java and the Android SDK.
After a few hours, the result was Pinoy Jokes Android App. Its initial version was uploaded in the Android Market last January 30. The day after, I also did a quick presentation of the app in the show-and-tell meetup of GTUG Philippines. The latest version of the app now allows users to view random jokes and share jokes.
To download the app, go to the Android Market or scan the QR code below:
