Huffington Post Android App Updated, Brings New UI and Offline Reading

Huffington

The official Huffington Post application for Android received a pretty major face lift today, bringing a whole new look and features to go along with it.  Users can now sign in to Twitter and Facebook for easy sharing, plus the app now gives off this Google+ feel, with blocks of stories going up and down, which is pretty slick. The full feature changelog can be viewed below. 

What’s in this version:

  • New Design
  • Supports articles, blogs, slideshows and videos
  • Sign in with facebook/twitter.
  • Customize your favorite sections with one tap
  • Offline reading
  • Auto-enabled Smartcache to WIFI connection for faster content loading.
  • New comment system and more social features

Cheers Terry!

    The HuffingAndPuffington Post. That liberal, left wing rag that’s shamelessly in the tank for Dictator Hussein Obama.
    Yeah, I’ll pass.

    Wow this is getting quite political.

    Are they praising Rand Paul in the Huffington Post? Hell hath frozen over.

    • http://twitter.com/garagelogician Jeff C

      Not exactly. And most of the people leaving comments are going with the old standby Bush arguments, or that Paul wouldn’t be doing this if we had a Republican president.

        Reading those comments can be frustrating. Who knew, back in 2003 when there was a vibrant anti-war movement, that the American Left would turn into authority-loving pseudo-Republicans just 10 years later.

    Who reads that liberal rag?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Liberals…?

    Haha, maybe I’m the only one who checks out the Huffington Post and thought it was a nice update, oh well:)

      It’s actually one of my preferred news apps (main homepage with Flipboard, Pocket, and Scope) with Feedly and Guardian UK on the next…

        Mine too, I like the fact that they cover a wide variety of topics and the main fact is that I always get excited anytime an Android app gets a big update!

    What is Huffington Post?
    Seriously, I get tech news coming from them, but then I see celeb news too. It’s such a weird mix of things to cover.

    • http://twitter.com/garagelogician Jeff C

      Just another cog in the liberal media machine that is propping up the Lightbringer. Think of it as Drudge for liberals: part news aggregator/part commie blog.

      This app will never be installed on my phone.

        At least they don’t report false/ fake news like Fox and prey on people using fear mongering tactics. .

        • http://twitter.com/garagelogician Jeff C

          The entire mainstream media reports false/fake news and preys on people using fear mongering tactics (as does the Democrat party).

    I just downloaded it and think it is terrible. It is not at all functional.
    I should have waited.

    Does anyone know how to easily switch back to the old format or have the old file handy?

    Thanks!

  • Masterminded

    The interface looks nice, but the content… What are they Huffing?

    Between Pulse, Currents, Talktu, Flipboard and Google Reader I think I can pass on this one.
