    No, there is not a google wave app for android. I believe I remember reading that google had no plans for a dedicated app, but just to have the web app accessible from all platforms. I tested wave from the droid, and it sorta works, but is godawful slow and buggy.

    i wonder why they wouldn't mke a dedicated app, especially with it being a google phone. i guess that i could try and access it via the web instead of having an app for it, but i'll wait til they get rid of bugs that you're talkin about

    It doesn't like me using the default browser when trying to get to the wave site. It always tries to tell me to download another browser.

    Still in "Preview" so maybe we'll see an app when it moves to Beta. There are still so many things to tweak with it that I'd prefer they fix before trying it as an app on my droind.

    Yah, I think the idea is not that they don't think wave deserves it's own app, just that they envision web apps being just as capable as the native counterparts, making the native apps superfluous. We'll see if HTML5 can actually make that vision happen, I remain skeptical.
