Q&A Site Stack Exchange Launches Android App

Ever wanted to find the answer to a question without having to click on various Google links or rely on Yahoo! Answers? Well now you can, thanks to a new app from Q&A website Stack Exchange.

Released for Android version 4.0 and above, Stack Exchange brings together a network of over 120 communities that focus on a diverse range of topics. Using the app, you will be able to find questions and answers on everything from technology to cooking with minimum fuss.

The new mobile feed is an “entirely new experience” that is not based on the Web and comes packed with features, as detailed by The Next Web:

  • Customized recommendations of questions you can answer, based on the sites and tags you participate in.
  • Interesting questions tailored to your interests that will learn from your activity and get better over time.
  • Updates when you get upvoted or your answers get accepted, so you can feel good about helping others wherever you are.
  • All your replies (answers, comments, chat messages, etc.) in one easy timeline.
  • Community events, blog posts, and even recommended jobs for you from Careers.

You are able to use the app without an account, but will not be able to ask or answer any questions until you are signed up. Accounts can be created from within the app and with Facebook and Google+ credentials.

Once you are signed up, you can join the vast community to ask and answer questions, post comments, flag and vote to close. The app can also be configured to open automatically when clicking on a Web-based link.

Finally, if you’ve asked, or are involved in the answering of a question, Stack Exchange can be set up to notify you whenever there is new activity.

For now, Stack Exchange is native to the Google Play Store; however, the company has promised an iPhone Alpha in the coming weeks.
