Digg released an Android app with Digg reader included in it

Saturday, August 31, 2013

After only one month since Digg released its app for iOS, from today Digg is also available for the Android users. Digg, who also released RSS reader after the cancellation of Google Reader, now tries to more visitors than the competition. Like in the iOS version, Digg and Digg reader are in one app.

As they stated in their blog post, Digg employees say that these are the features that their app will offer:

· Quickly swipe back and forth through Digg’s Top Stories, as well as through any feed or folder in Digg Reader. Choose from either the web view or the parsed text view.

· Digg or save any story; send it to Instapaper, Pocket or Readability (automatically upon save, if you choose); and share to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Tumblr, WordPress, Buffer, Dropbox, Google Drive, email, text or any other sharable app on your device.

· Search Digg Top Stories.

· Sort your Digg Reader items by popularity to quickly see which of your items are the most talked-about on the social web.

· Log in to Digg Reader with your Google, Facebook or Twitter account.

· Search for and add new feeds. Create, organize and delete folders.

· If you so choose, post your diggs automatically to your Facebook timeline.

They also stated that this is their first release and that they are working on improvements of this app. Interesting, in the next update they will add even more features like “show only unread items” view, background updating and text size and display options.

However, in the first day the app has not received great average rating. It has 3.9 from around 330 reviews. I haven’t got any problems using it so far and I really like it. It is clean, fast and compelling. But, reading through the reviews I noticed that some people are complaining about some technical features and that the app crashes on some phones. That will be definitely sorted out in the next update I guess. Nevertheless, it is definitely worth to try it and I think that Feedly finally has some serious competition.
