Digg for Android launches with access to curated stories and Digg Reader

Digg on Thursday announced the launch of its Android app, following an app being available on iOS for quite sometime. The Digg for Android app doesn't bring anything too groundbreaking for the service, but does give users in the Android camp a way to access Betaworks' web aggregator.

Like the web version of Digg, the Android app provides up-to-the-minute stories from the Digg homepage, which are curated by a select team of aggregators. Furthermore, users are given access to Digg Reader, a replacement for Google Reader that offers users a list of stories flowing through their RSS feeds.

The app also has features like the ability to quickly swipe back and forth through Digg’s Top Stories, as well as through any feed or folder in Digg Reader. You can also save any story, send it to Instapaper, Pocket or Readability (automatically upon save, if you choose), share to Facebook, Twitter, and other apps. Furthermore, Digg Top Stories are searchable, and you can sort your Digg Reader items by popularity to quickly see which of your items are the most talked-about on the social web.

The Digg for Android app is now available on Google Play.
