Android App Tablet Review: USA TODAY

Sep 2, 2011

USA TODAY for Tablet is as beautiful as it is practical. It just might be the best news app available on any Android-powered device.

The app’s layout is specifically suited to the larger screen sizes and takes advantage of tablet-specific functionality. The menu of USA TODAY’s articles stays pinned to the left-hand-side of the screen, while the remaining space displays the entirety of a selected article (where users scroll through one page at a time.)

Finding your way around the app is a snap! The tablet is organized by category, and each category like the printed edition has its own designated color. Each category’s header has “Break out” style bits of information including game scores, weather, and popular new books.

The USA Today tablet app sets the standard for how news should be packaged on mobile devices.
