The initial release is for Android and iOS phones and tablets, although it’s U.S.-only for the time being. As per the usual Google modus operandi, the app is free to all, and is available now in the respective marketplaces.

The app comes with some default sites installed, but you can add sites of your own selection. The app syncs for easy offline reading as well, so if you travel a lot you can always have the latest news ready to read in a clean and consistent format on your mobile device.
