We’re excited to announce that MakeUseOf’s app for Android has been completely revamped! Instead of simply a portal to access the website, our app is now a standalone experience. Below, we review some of the standout features that might interest you.

A Fresh Coat of Paint

A few months ago, we unveiled a brand-new theme at MakeUseOf. The new app reflects this — from the app’s icon to the fonts and colors, everything matches our website.


The Best Apps

With so many apps on Google Play, it’s difficult to find the ones worth downloading. The Apps tab will show you the top 50 must-have downloads in categories like Shopping, News, and Music. Tap an app to read its description right without leaving the MakeUseOf app. You can even jump right to Google Play to download any of them that might interest you.


Fresh Video Content

Sometimes you want to watch a video instead of reading an article. The Videos tab has you covered — from the newest gadget reviews at MakeUseOf to explanations of technology and DIY topics, you’ll never have to look far for new videos.


New Deals

MakeUseOf Deals brings you big discounts on software and hardware. The Deals tab makes sure you never miss a chance to save big.



Rounding out the app’s features is the Chats tab, which allows you to connect with other MakeUseOf readers about various topics. Whether you want to talk about the latest WhatsApp update or get help with an issue on your PC, you’ll find the right group of folks here.


Settings and Extras

Of course, you can search for any MakeUseOf article from right inside the app too. If you like to read on your commute and want to save data, you can download the latest ten articles to your device to read offline at any time.


If you don’t want to read about certain topics we cover, you can exclude those sections. Even better, the app can notify you about new articles you’ll like so you never miss a cool post. When you see an article you can’t read right away, you can save it for later and even sign into your MakeUseOf account to sync those saves across multiple devices.

We’re so excited to share this app for you, and hope it helps you enjoy MakeUseOf’s content even more. Be sure to give it a download. iPhone users, we have you covered too! Check out what you can find inside our MakeUseOf iOS app MakeUseOf's New iPhone App Is Here & You'll Love It MakeUseOf's New iPhone App Is Here & You'll Love It New look, new features.

    It would be great if you could port your iOS app to Windows Store and create a Windows 10 Universal App. I love reading your articles but I hate doing that using Microsoft Edge.
