Telefonica have requested Google remove the app from the store, I don't have time to recompile it with giffgaff trademarks removed and you wouldn't be able to find it in the store if I did, so updated to version 0. Can't post it anywhere else either, for the same trademark reasons.
Be nice if someone in gg management would sort out the infringement claim lodged with Google, don't want a record building up.

This thread is pretty old and unfortunately the application is no longer available, so I have locked this thread up.
If you are looking for the official my giffgaff app, check out this link here: https://www.giffgaff.com/mobile-app
Worked fine for me (2.1 Galaxy Portal). I appreciated the "this app does one thing, press this button to do it" approach; no need for it to be more complicated than that.
Maybe link to the APN settings afterwards so people can see what it's done?
Edit: Oh, maybe also mention that the app doesn't do anything you can't do manually, but it provides a one-click service to simplify the process? Just thinking out loud here.
Going to delete my current APN settings and try this out
I'll edit this post when I'm done.
Had a go. I like it! Works very well and is nice visually. I love the 'toast' notifcation at the end saying 'giffgaffed'! That's brilliant. I remember when I was coding how much creating a 'toast' made me smile like it was an achievement...
Anyways, good job on the .apk, now we need to get someone to push this into the Market!
Ok Dean I'm with you till the part you select the .apk
When I open the folder "giffgaffapn.1.0" on my phone, all I see is 3 files and two folders, I cant see any .apk
If I download it via my phone its fine.
Yet if I download it via my computer the file shows as a zip file lol
Sorry to be so thick.
Ok once I transfer the .zip file from my computer to my phone, I just need to change the .zip to .apk and all is fine.
Still can't work out why it downloads to my computer as a .zip tho.
