Yesterday, I attended the Second Philippine Android Community (PhAC) Meet Up. I found out about this group on Twitter (@PHL_Android). The group maintains a website where you can ask questions about Android devices. PhAC is the brainchild of a lady named Charo Nuguid.

Princess Cruz, of Globe Labs, and several of the Android Developers who built apps for Globe Telecom were present to introduce their apps and answer questions. The most interesting App I saw yesterday was one called POST'T. This app allows you to post simultaneously to Facebook, Twitter and Plurk. If you use two or all of these services, this will save you time in having to update your status in different networks. POST'T was created by a group of Filipino Android Developers going by the name Team WSG.
The Globe Android apps can be downloaded by Globe subscribers through Globes App Zone. At present, Globe Telecom hosts 43 locally made Android Apps in their App Zone. So Globe has its own Android app store. Nice people, good food and learning something new. All in all, a very interesting afternoon.
