Last night, the HTC Flyer received an update that included the OnLive viewer, allowing users to get a glimpse of what the future of mobile gaming should look like. Naturally, those of us that don't have a Flyer want to peep into said future, too - so, in typical XDA fashion, the APK was extracted from the update so it could be installed on other devices. It's worth noting that this is the viewer, not the player, so you'll only be able to watch the action. For those not sure what OnLive is all about, here's a video of it running on a PC:

For the most part, the app seems to be working on the bulk of devices - including Droid X, EVO 4G, EVO 3D, Nook Color running CM7, and Samsung Galaxy S II, just to name a few. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to support the Tegra 2 chipset at this point, as there was not a single report of it functioning on the aforementioned architecture.

If you want to give a go for yourself, head on over to XDA and grab the download.
