Lets you browse, read and save TechCrunch articles on your phone.
The TechCrunch app is a great way to read TechCrunch articles on your phone/tablet. The articles are well organised, browse-able by category, most recent and trending. If I had one complaint it would be the lack of a save button - you must long press the article in the browse section.
The app has a decent article reader - it loads articles quickly and has adjustable text size. It also lets you save articles for offline reading. The articles are well organised with categories, as well as latest and trending sections.
There's not much wrong with this app, but if I had to have one complaint it would be the lack of an actual save button - you must long press in the browse section in order to save articles.Developer's original description available here

Are You guys insane? Whenever I open a new article, it first redirects me to play store to download some music app?
Very good at keeping yourself updated
The app crash a lot . Though the content is good
All things geek, crowdfunded, disruptive and tech. Trending news on the next, great six-letters -or-less- named app/Web biz. Hard to read articles because it crashes every two minutes. IOS version is stable. Avoid the Droid version until they fix this.
Doesn't work on android lollipop
