For those who like to keep up with the startup scene in Silicon Valley, there are few resources better than TechCruch. Of course, that's not all the TC crew covers - there's also gadgets, gear, and other fun techy junk.

And now, you can get all the TechCruch content you can handle by way of an official Android tablet app. The app appears to be well designed, as it features an intuitive split-screen layout and a rich, immersive experience. After messing around with it for just a few minutes on my Nexus 7, I have to say that I'm quite impressed with the implementation.

The Play Store allowed me to install this on my Galaxy Nexus, but it's not meant for phones. It's optimized for use on tablets and will not render correctly on a small screen.

Naturally, the application is free, grab it from the widget below.

        You know, I googled it to check and was looking for the "Did you mean...", which wasn't there, and completely missed that the first entry was for Merriam-Webster and was the correct spelling.

    First thing I noticed on this screens was the iOS share icon in the top right.....no way..

      They definitely derped with that one. I don't think I wouldn't use an app because of one icon though.

        its the principle man. there becoming lazy and just doing cheap ports. this is pathetic. not that i care for this app but still they should at least try to follow the holo theme

    Yeah, I just read and don't comment on their pieces, so I'll stick to reading through the website or Currents.

    • Goldenpins
