European movie, television, and game rental service LoveFilm has made its official Android debut. With the LoveFilm by Post application, available now to Android 2.2 and higher devices, users can better manage their home entertainment needs through the service.

LoveFilm by Post doesn’t include streaming options. That’s not surprising considering the “By post” in the name. However, it does serve as a list management tool for keeping track of 70,000 movies, tv shows, and games that users want to rent through the postal service. LoveFilm shows trailers and ratings to help subscribers decide what’s worth renting, and allows them to add, remove, or rearrange their queue. Sadly the rental list feature is available only to members in the UK.

Searching for new titles can be filtered according to the formats that you prefer. So if you want only to see movies available on Blu-Ray, DVD’s will not be listed. The same goes for PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, and Wii formats. Other discovery tools include browsing by genre, popularity, and what’s coming soon.

Current LoveFilm members can grab the app by clicking the download button below. Anyone in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, or the UK interested in joining can get a free 30 day trial by using ANDROID01 as a promo code. LoveFilm promises to introduce German support “soon.”
