Digital publishing company Issuu has announced the launch of its new Android app, bringing over 15 million global publications in 30 languages to users on any Android device. While the Issuu platform was previously released on Android a few years ago, the original app hasn’t been recently updated, and is being replaced by this new experience.

Issuu has been rebuilt from the ground up on Android’s KitKat platform, with the goal of making a mobile reading experience that’s “more immersive and engaging” for users. Users can explore publications, and can follow others with similar interests. Issuu says its platform is used by hundreds of thousands of publishers, offering content from Armani to NASCAR, with support for both long-form traditional magazines and shorter or specialized topics like gluten-free cooking.

Issuu has also announced a partnership with Huffington Post Media Group to be the first to offer the Huffington Magazine to Android users.

“Today for the first time Issuu readers can carry 15 million magazines on their favorite Android device and discover content from hundreds of thousands of global publishers,” said Joe Hyrkin, CEO of Issuu. “The new app was designed from the pixels up to offer the world’s best mobile reading experience. And, with the massive depth and breadth of content on Issuu there is something for the enthusiast in everyone.”

The Issuu app is available to download for free on Google Play. You can follow the app on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
