I’ve been working with the guys at BGR for a couple of weeks now and have finally released the often requested official BGR app for Android. They’ve written up a nice story about the launch.
This app was an interesting development because several years ago I wrote a news reader app specifically tailored to BGR called Genius. Genius was well received, with over 10,000 downloads, before I started talking with BGR about the sale of the app and future development. For the official BGR app I did a complete rebranding to match their new look, updated much of the app to fit the new Android UI Guidelines, and improved the performance of the article loading.
BGR was a fun team to work with. They had a look they wanted based on their iOS app, but were very open to suggestions regarding the UI allowing me to create a true Android experience that users will love.
Download the app from Google Play.
