They may take a lot of flak from standup comics and late show hosts, but BuzzFeed has no doubt developed a popular news service, especially with the 18-34 year old crowd that is their core audience. Earlier this year they released a dedicated app for the iOS platform so their audience no longer had to use their mobile web browser. Now BuzzFeed has released the Android version of their app and you can grab it in the Google Play Store.
If you are not a fan of BuzzFeed or the stories they choose to publish, the app may not be for you. However, they did try to stay true to their roots of making news easy to share. Being on Android, they also took steps to stick close to Google’s Material design philosophy. So it may just be worth a look to see how well they developed their app.
When BuzzFeed launched in Apple’s App Store, it quickly rocketed to the number 1 position for a news app during the week it launched. Do you think they can do the same thing in the Android world?
