We have recently launch a new FT Android app. If you would like to try it, you can find out more here: http://apps.ft.com/android/
The new app is a hybrid built using our HTML5 web app as a basis, wrapped up as a native Android app and available for download from the Android Market. Itâ€™s our second product launch powered by the FT web app – the first was the iOS version, which has seen 1m downloads since it went live earlier this year.
Until now, about half the people visiting the FTâ€™s mobile site, m.ft.com, have been doing so on Android devices. Through our new app, they can now enjoy a significantly better experience on their phones and tablets, including the ability to download the current edition for reading offline, smoother navigation between sections, easier log-in, quicker access to markets data and search and the ability to choose different regional editions.
Weâ€™ve been running the app quietly in beta for a while, gathering enough user feedback to be confident the app would support a high-quality experience across the ever-expanding range of Android devices and software versions.
Now that the FT Android app has had its full launch weâ€™re hoping for lots more feedback, all of which will help us add new features that our customers genuinely want, as well as fixing any bugs we havenâ€™t picked up.
We recognise we havenâ€™t spotted every single possible bug in testing because the Android platform is so diverse – there are simply millions of possible permutations of carrier, manufacturer, Android version and connection type – itâ€™s impossible to treat them all. So if you pick up any issues in our app that you think could benefit from a second look – please do drop us a line at Help@FT.com
We hope you enjoy the brand new Android app – weâ€™ll continue to improve it over the coming months, as well as turn our attention to the many new devices and platforms coming up in 2012.
