I am used to using my smart phone to browse Stack Overflow with a web browser, but I feel that that's not a very good solution. Now I want to use a mobile app to browse SO.

Is there a mobile app for Stack Overflow, or plans to develop one? Third-party apps (both Android and iOS) would be fine for me.

  • Yes, but it's been moved to the right place now. But what do you think an app would add that the mobile site lacks?

  • What part of the "user experience?" Just the fact that you open it from the home screen?

  • Sure you can, I do it quite often. You just need to know how to do it without the buttons. And you're just as unlikely to get the buttons in a mobile app.

  • Come on, all you have to do is go to the respective marketplaces and search for "stackoverflow". And, by the rate of ios/android questions, I'm sure this list will be stale in about two minutes.

  • @macskuz Don't be so hard on yourself =) I thought the same thing before I got used to the mobile interface. Dec 14, 2011 at 20:28
  • There will be. Official Android app is under active development. This comment is posted with the closed alpha version. Oct 21, 2013 at 21:00
  • To be able to have notifications on your mobile / tablet would be nice...
