PSA: The Terrible Old Droid Life App is Dead, and That’s a Good Thing


Say your goodbyes – the terrible Droid Life app that we introduced years ago as a way to extend your DL addiction, is now dead. Actually, we pulled it from Google Play a few weeks ago, but as of this week, the app will no longer update with new posts. Trust me when I say that this is a good thing. No one should have to suffer through the pain associated with that mobile experience ever again.

In the mean time – as we continue to discuss potential replacements – if you’d like an option to keep up with us outside of the website, think about Google Currents. You can catch all of our feeds through the DL subscription in Currents, including our podcast and YouTube feeds. Google+ (our page) also isn’t a bad place to catch the latest posts in real time.

But for those who want a dedicated DL app, don’t worry, we are definitely considering some options. And actually, we’d love to get your ideas in the comments on what your dream DL app would look and feel like. What would you like to see in it?

Subscribe to DL through Currents here.

Update:  We noticed in the comments that a number of you are fine without a dedicated DL app, but we also know that plenty of people were using the old app. So, let’s do a poll to see where you all stand.

Do you want a dedicated Droid Life app?

    Google Current is great mobile option for Droid-Life. Refine it, and it will be great! I have multiple phones and tablets, as well as other news feeds, and it’s a pain to manually install and update each and every feeds on each single device. Also Google Current makes it much easier to restore every subscription after flashes.

    I’ve got Google Reader still (till the apps I use give me a good alternative), so not gonna miss it here.

    I’m not really sure if its more of a chrome problem or a thing with the dl website, but the desktop site on mobile has no margin on the left side, the text is right up to the edge and it annoys the sh*t out of me. It got fixed somehow when Chrome beta was first released, but went right back to the way it has always been. perhaps the money for making an app is better spent on a face lift for the site itself.
