If you're a politics junkie and not reading Politico, then you're doing it wrong. Politico is the go-to source for all the political news you can eat, and now it's available for Android tablets.

The app not only features the top-notch journalistic acumen that you've become accustomed to reading on Politico, but also a clean layout, intuitive interface, and easy-to-read text, thanks to user-definable size. It also support four different types of push notifications (which can also be disabled): breaking news, app tips, general alerts, and new app features; so you'll know the latest as soon as it hits the scene.

The app is free, so hit the widget to grab it.

    Can anyone link to the apk? For some reason it is marked as incompatible with my Acer A500...

    The problem I'm seeing is a proliferation of these apps which are just alternate ways to get the same stuff we can get at the site. Problem is, for someone who surfs a lot, you end up having to use a large # of apps just like this one. Why in the world can someone not make a standard-aggregation system for full articles and content that isn't specific to one app...Most newsreaders only have the first few paragraphs and then it's off to the site. Hmmmm

      This is why I still use the web browser for pretty much any website content. I'd rather not have a ton of apps cluttering up my phone when one browser does it all.

    No thanks. Politico teamed up with Facebook to track users.

    FWIU - Facebook and Politico have teamed up to track user comments / status updates, (no telling what else) on Facebook regarding posts with politics. I'm assuming they look for key words in posts. Then political ads are delivered. Maybe they even track text messages and address books for political comments or references, who knows. IMO this is way too much infringement on free speech and the right to redress government complaints as well as have a free election. There's no telling who the info is shared with. Maybe the next move is to have some PAC rep knocking on my front door asking me why I was reading some online article which praised an opponent's opinion.

    I wouldn't let the filth of Politico's Presidential Panty Sniffing Politics get near my Android. That outfit is nearly as bad as PMSNBC.

      Well at least they suspended Joe Williams. On MSDNC they would have given him his own show on the 8pm time slot.
