Today we're excited to announce the launch of bit-tech's first mobile app. Available for Android phones, the app makes your favourite site easy to read on the go, and and has a host of mobile-focussed features.

Most exciting is that it optimises the forums for easy use on your phone, thanks to Tapatalk integration, something that previously you had to buy the Tapatalk app for. This means you can keep up to date with the latest discussions as well as being able to join in and add your comments on news stories and browse an Android-optimised version of the site, all from one app. Incidentally, you can do all this for the same price as the standalone Tapatalk app.

You can also add sections of the site to your favourite list so that you can easily follow the areas you're most interested in, or favourite individual articles if you want to come back to them quickly at a later point. As you'd expect it's easy to share bit-tech content via Facebook, Twitter, email and all the other social network services the cool kids are using these days. The app also features built-in support for the mighty bit-tech and CPC podcast.

You might remember we ran a beta test for the app back in the spring; since then we've worked hard to improve the app both in terms of features and performance. Unlike a lot of apps, which are developed by third parties, Dennis Publishing has decided to build its own internal team to create apps - and it's lead by ex Custom PC and bit-tech editor Alex Watson. We think having an internal team will make for higher quality apps that serve the readers better.

The bit-tech app is the first product of this new team and we're hoping for it to be a big success. If you've got an Android phone, please do check it out, and if you like it, leave us a nice review. It's the best way for new people to discover the app and bit-tech content.

The app is on sale in the Android marketplace now for £1.79; please check it out and let us know what you think.
