You may have read our article about the Chumby, and about how much we like it. Well, now you don’t even need a Chumby to enjoy the Chumby experience! If you have an Android phone, you can get Andorid Chumby application on your phone! Some people are finding that the Chumby app for Android doesn’t work, but that’s because there is a trick to getting the Chumby. It is an easy trick to getting the Chumby android app to work, and here it is!
The first thing to do is to search for the Chumby app in the Android market, and install it. The Chumby application for Android is $4.99, which is a bargain when you consider that the Chumby devices run around $100 (and are still worth it, in our estimation!)
Once you have downloaded the Chumby application, go with your browser to Chumby.com, and create an account (which is free to do).
Now, open the Chumby application, and enter your username and password that you registered at the Chumby site.
Now Here is the Trick:
In addition to your username and password, the Chumby app asks for a device name.
If you already have a Chumby device, you will probably assume they are asking for that device’s name, in order to authenticate you.
In reality, the Chumby application is asking you to create a name for your Android phone! It wants you to put in a new name, such as “My Android Chumby” (or whatever you want it to be).
If you put in the name of an existing device, or if you leave it blank, it won’t work.
You need to create a brand new device name for the Chumby Android app.
There, see? Wasn’t that an easy trick?
And hey, let us know what your favorite Chumby apps are!
