Opinion: As somebody that writes for an Android news site, one of the best if I do say so myself, you’d expect me to care about the latest news and, unsurprisingly, I like to be informed. Drippler keeps me informed in a way that other apps haven’t been able to. I don’t much bother with RSS as I can never bring myself to sort out a source list and in the end I don’t think to look at whichever reader I’m using. In short, I find the whole process a bore.Both touchscreen Salsa mobile phones and LED HTC chacha phones support numerous mobile applications.
Drippler, on the other hand, gets me the news I want without any hassle or fuss and it’s great to have the app on a phone to get the news wherever I app. I dislike shopping and so whenever I am shopping with my girlfriend, I hit the net on my phone, Drippler has made this process easier and more comfortable.
As somebody that loves Android very much it’s great to see an app that delivers me Android news and only Android news quickly and easily. With high resolution displays becoming the norm on phones it’s easier and easier to read content on them and as such Drippler is a must have for any Android fan.
