This question already has an answer here:

Is there any official Stack Overflow Android app?

Other than the Stack Overflow apps in Google Play which are nothing more than web browser type apps?

Why is the official Stack Overflow for Android app still not developed?

There is a real need for this app, since its not very user friendly to login from a browser on pc/tab/phone to view the questions & answers.

More importantly to get real time notification and increase portability.!!

As of writing this comment, there is an official Android app, and plans to develop an iOS app. Also see Do Stack Overflow and other Stack Exchange sites have an app I can use? –  animuson Dec 19 '13 at 18:24

Is there any official Stack Overflow Android app?

Not one currently publicly available, but you can view what's available over on Stack Apps.

For read-only access, there's nothing preventing the community-built apps from providing the same level of functionality as the full site, but I don't know to what extent any of the available ones do.

Now that they've hired someone specifically for this job, the application is currently undergoing pre-release testing, and will be available sometime in the not-so-distant future. You can help test the application by following the instructions in that announcement.

Nice find in the Careers! So it means they do plan to expand into the mobile market? –  Shadow Wizard Jun 2 '13 at 14:56
    
Seemingly so, yes, though I don't personally know what that entails. –  Tim Stone Jun 2 '13 at 14:58

I was going the mention the same thing as @Metalhead1247.It could be possible to make a team of great developers from StackOverflow itself and develop a great app for StackOverflow. –  Beatles1692 Jun 5 '13 at 20:25
    
If anyone still looking for the app, there's one here at play store –  Sudhir Mishra Mar 23 at 7:43
