  • Designed specifically for Android devices, a great experience on Android for browsing Digg
  • Browsing of stories in list view and with a comments page
  • Digging and burying of both stories and comments
  • Landscape mode
  • Using an in-app browser to pan around and zoom in and out of content. On the Nexus One, multi-touch is enabled

Following fast on the heels of the Digg iPhone app announcement last week, we are pleased to announce the availability of the official Digg Android app. Starting today, you can download the Digg Android app for free onto any Android device.

Download Digg by searching for "Digg" in the Android Market.
Or, you can scan this QR Code from your Android phone.
Or, click this link directly from your device: Download the Digg Android app.

The Digg Android app has been designed for an ideal mobile Digg browsing experience on an Android phone. You can browse and digg stories and comments, and the app supports landscape mode for browsing story titles and pages that load in the in-app browser.

The Digg Android app looks great on newer Android phone models with higher resolution screens like the Nexus One and the Droid.

We're glad to be able to make an even greater commitment to bringing Digg onto mobile devices today and, as always, we'd love your feedback so please do tell us what you think. We'll be working hard on releasing more improvements to this app in the coming weeks. 

Finally, it's definitely worth mentioning that as our mobile efforts expand, we're hiring more people. If you are interested, please check out our jobs page.
