For months now, Scroll.in readers have been asking for a mobile app. We took your requests seriously and set out to build a great news reading experience on mobile devices. Today, we’re sharing a major first step in achieving that goal.
Android users, get excited! We’re delighted to launch the first version of our Scroll.in Android app on the Google Play Store.
In this first version our goal was to ease current and new readers into the mobile experience. A unified design between the web version and the app was therefore a must. This vision meant that we kept the carousel with the most important stories of the day, a familiar 'hamburger' menu, and unhindered reading of stories via infinite scroll.
Readers love sharing our stories, and we wanted to make it even easier for you to spread the word. The app’s new Share button is bold but doesn’t shift focus from the stories, a reminder that your friends on WhatsApp, Facebook, or any other social media are just a tap away.
There are a few changes to make the Android app stand out, of course. We’ve modified the structure of our stories to introduce a sense of hierarchy and to draw attention to the most important elements of the articles using multiple visual cues.
Scroll is on a quest to build India’s most stunning mobile news app experience, and we’re just getting started. Expect a steady stream of new features that will evolve the app into a single destination for all your news and entertainment needs.
So, get the new Scroll.in app for Android from the Google Play Store now and start scrolling. Let us know what you think on firstname.lastname@example.org.
