  • Uh... whu?

    I've been using the Hulu+ app on my HTC Flyer for months now. It is by no means "new" to Android. There is a new update to the app, however. It has a prettier (and more useful) preview screen for shows.

    Still doesn't fix my one peeve: on my HTC Flyer, at least, the app starts out in portrait mode, and only swicthes to landscape once you start watching a show.
