The market for Android mobile devices and apps continues to explode. With over 130 million total devices and six billion total app downloads. According to Google the Android market is growing at a pace of 550,000 new activations a day. What does that have to do with Usenet? Everything. As with other technologies users want access to newsgroups from their mobile devices. Whether browsing on a Samsung Galaxy Tab or HTC EVO 4G we all want access to our favorite online services. From anywhere and at anytime. Usenet is no exception.
We’ve had the opportunity to test several mobile newsreaders this year. Our favorite so far is EZ Global Search, an iOS app for Easynews. On the Android side you have some cool apps including EZ Usenet and EasyBrowser. Both of which are also for Easynews. In addition to SABMobile for SABnzbd. Just as the newsreader market has become so competitive lately there’s also a lot of opportunity for mobile apps. Both for iOS and Android devices. With the ability for Usenet users to access content on the go.
We look forward to tracking the progress of the current Android Usenet apps and new projects. If you are a developer working on a mobile Usenet app please let us know once released. As we’ll be happy to take a look at the client and share it with our readers. You can contact us @NewsgroupRevs. Stay tuned later this week as we’ll be bringing you some creative ways to access popular newsreaders from your Android and iOS devices.
