At long last, Digg has finally released its application for Android users today. The new app, which is pretty slick, comes with Digg Reader integration, allowing you to take the news that’s important to you on the go or save it for later.
Here’s a quick look at some of the features for the new Digg Reader app from the Digg Blog:
- 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.
Out of the gate, Digg has released the Android app that everyone was looking forward to. The UI is rather slick, utilizing some now-expected tweaks found in many modern Android apps today, like swiping to reveal your feeds and settings. Of course, there are a few missing features, which isn’t too surprising for an initial release and the Digg team is well aware of it.
“There are a few missing features we’re still testing such as a “Show Only Unread Items” view, text size and display mode options, and background updating. You’ll see those added shortly, along with other new and bewitching features.”
If you’re looking forward to new features or the app is missing some must-haves for you (like a night mode theme), then just sit tight.
