HBO Go gets small update in the Google Play Store


HBO Go has received an upgrade in the Google Play Store, today. At first glance the only thing we are told is new are some bug fixes and general enhancements.

While that barely merits attention, Droid-Life has reason to believe the update also brings support for devices running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, though the Google Play Store is still saying devices beyond 4.0.3 aren’t supported.

App-level support seems to be well in-tact, however, as a user has reportedly successfully installed and used the application on their Jelly Bean device. Perhaps HBO meant to flip the switch in their manifest, but we can’t say for sure. Let’s hope they get things going soon if they really did mean to enable Jelly Bean support. [Google Play Store]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
