Starting Off

I'm gearing up to launch my first app for Android: World of Warcraft Realm Checker. The name is a bit of a mouthful, I know. This simple app will allow you to view the current status of realms in the US, Europe, and Korea using the recently released community API from Blizzard. Here's a list of some of the features:

 - See a realm population (Low, Medium, High, etc), type (PvE, PvP, etc), and status
 - Show all realms for a given region.
 - Mark realms as favorites by simply tapping a realm on the screen.
 - Favorite realms can be viewed by pressing "My Realms". Convenient for keeping track of realms you play on.
 - Both the favorites and full realm list can be filtered by a typed keyword.

The app itself is pretty simple right now, but I'd like to expand its features a bit in the future. For example, being able to view recent service status messages from Blizzard. As Blizzard expands it's community API to other regions I'll get those in.

That's it for now!
