By far the most common user feedback over the past two months has been some variation on, “Where’s my freaking Android app, you lazy idiots!?” But, you know, with more colorful language.

Well today the long national nightmare is over. Now awaiting your download in Google Play: Digg for Android.

Like the web version of Digg, the Android app includes up-to-the-minute stories from the Digg homepage as well as Digg Reader, all optimized for your Android device.  

Some notable features:

  • 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.

This is our first Android release, and we’ll be updating and improving it steadily over the next few months. 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.
