APP WATCH: The Guardian for Android launches

It has been available for the iPhone for sometime, but now you can catch up with the Guardian on an Android handset too, with the launch of the Android app.

It isn't just about the written news story, the app has more about it than that. Although that's obviously a key part of it. Indeed, you can browse all of them by section, topic or contributor, if you just want the Charlie Brooker stuff, saving those searches for future use. But this is an app, meaning there's more to tempt you to make the jump from the paper or website browsing.

For a start, you can download your homepage and favourites for offline reading with the touch of a button, or schedule a daily download for a time that suits you.There's also the chance to watch video and listen to podcasts, as well as being able to flick through the photo galleries on the move. Other options include the ability to add favourites to your home screen with an expanded view or link, share articles and galleries using the Android share menu and view content in portrait or landscape orientation.

All sound good? Well, here's the cherry on the cake. It's a free app to download too. Go get it now on the Android Market.
