The Globe & Mail seemed to have shunned Android for the first couple years of its existence, focusing instead on improving its iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry apps. But the market share tides have turned and the people have spoken, and we have an Android app to prove it.
With a similar aesthetic to its iOS peer, the app supports offline reading, in-app searching, social media sharing and a customizable home screen. Its horizontal scrolling technique isn’t quite as smooth as on the iPhone, but it does a decent job rendering and scrolling long articles.
The app looks wonderful on the Galaxy Nexus, with a gorgeous font that would look great throughout the OS. Check out Globe News for Android in the Marketplace here.
