I'm happy to release one of my weekend project today. Greece Phonebook is a native #Android application that lists the telephone numbers of some of the most essential services and organizations of Greece.

You can download it from Google Play at

My goal was to explore some best practices in mobile app development, including clear design, automatic updates and in-app advertisement, plus use some very interesting technologies: ActiveAndroid for easy database access,  ActionBarSherlock for the action bars and Pollfish for monetisation.

The sourcecode is available on github ( under the Apache v2 License.

The app is still in beta and there are a few things missing (e.g. I was too lazy to re-scale the images for x-screen support) and I'd be very happy to hear your opinion and ideas/recommendations to improve it.

Hope you like it!
