Ausdroid has always offered its readers a few different ways to consume its news. What started as a simple blog then became a much more comprehensive website, we spread out into offering an RSS feed, a Podcast, and then a mobile optimised website. We’ve even been featured in HTC’s BlinkFeed product on their new handsets, which is quite a feat in itself.
We’d now like to introduce the latest member of the family, and one that we think is kind of cool.
Launched today on the Play Store is the official Ausdroid app. It’s free, and you can download it right now.
As a first release, which some of our long time readers have been using as semi-closed beta, there’s some features which aren’t available just yet, however you can enjoy the following features today:
- Read news, reviews, rumours and opinions in a number of categories
- View comments on articles (replying is coming next!)
- Download news in advance for offline reading
- Change between three themes – Light, Dark and Ausdroid
- View top stories as selected by our editors
We’re working on new features constantly, and we wanted to get this version out to you without any further delay. We have to offer a big thanks to Zac Barton who’s done the development work for Ausdroid, and has made this project what it is now.
So, what are you waiting for? Check it out, and by all means give us your feedback. It is, after all, what our readers want that will influence what comes next.
