Engadget Launches New, Mobile-First Product at CES

On Friday, we launched a new product for Engadget called Engadget Mini: the first test of a new microblogging platform we built for delivering real-time updates of all sorts of different content, including headlines, links, photos, videos, tweets, and comments.

We made this because we wanted to create a new kind of content experience designed for the screen in your pocket, not the one on your desk. We also wanted something that reflected the ways media has changed over the years, so there's a big emphasis in Mini on curating great content from across the social web.

Why launch at CES? Because there is no bigger event in the consumer electronics world, and we thought it'd be great to offer a real-time stream of everything interesting, important, and fun going on at the show.

We're going to keep Engadget Mini going after CES ends, and after making some improvements from what we learn over the course of the week, we hope to bring Mini to other brands here at AOL later this year. You can find it on the right-rail of Engadget.com and at mini.engadget.com, but the best way to experience Engadget Mini is on your phone or tablet using the iOS and Android apps that are available for it.

AOL Puts You in the Driver's Seat with Autoblog 360 App

Wish you could experience a luxury vehicle without the hassle of going to the dealership? Faster than you can say 'I-should-be-sitting-in-a-Maserati,' we have the perfect solution.
AOL has just launched Autoblog 360, offering car shoppers an interactive experience on their tablets. Every angle is captured, ensuring the user receives as close to an experience as sitting in the driver's seat as possible. And, if the virtual test drive experience has you excited enough over the car, you'll soon be able to request an in-person test drive. We'll arrange for delivery of the vehicle to your home or office where you can test drive on the roads you take every day – no pressure and hassle-free.

Other features include:
- 360-degree interior and exterior views
- Vehicle stats, best deals pricing & more
- Interactive experience where maneuvers of the tablet screen mimic the driver's eyes inside the vehicle - including the ability to virtually "open" the glove compartment and investigate the storage of the center console

You're a click away from the Autoblog 360 experience: Check out www.Autoblog360.com download now.*

AOL App for iPhone & Android Has Arrived

We're pleased to announce the arrival of the AOL App for iPhone & Android. Staying true to our mission to inform, entertain and connect the world, the new app ensures you always have customizable news at your fingertips.

Whether you're interested in videos, trending stories or general lifestyle info, the app allows users to prioritize what they view in a "news stream" format, while learning preferences over time to reflect individualized programming based on personal interests.

If you'd like to share a story, you can quickly push out via email, Facebook and Twitter. Afraid that there's a ton of great material but not enough time to digest it all? No problem; you can also save your favorite stories and videos to access later.

Sit back, relax, and visit iTunes or Google Play to start perusing - and stay up-to-date with everything that matters to you!

TechCrunch Launches App for Android Users


"Galaxy", "Nexus", "Droid" – if you love those words, you're one of two kinds of geek: the kind that's always looking for little green men from Mars, or the kind that obsesses over a little green guy from Mountain View, CA. Because we fall into the latter category (ok, so there is some overlap in that Venn Diagram), we've been hard at work to bring the best of TechCrunch within a mobile app to your phone for millions of Google's Android users.

Now, all that hard work has paid off and we're proud to announce that there is a new version of TechCrunch available for download on your Android device. If you're a Google aficionado with an Android tablet or phone, you can access all the latest tech news with full CrunchBase integration at your fingertips.
Why is this app so awesome? Because we said so...and you get:

  • Custom designed Android interface for your tablet and phone
  • The hottest news in tech with the Trending List
  • TechTweets showing the latest tech news hitting social media
  • An outstanding mobile experience for the original content on TechCrunch
  • Comprehensive integration with CrunchBase
  • Save articles for offline reading
  • Original video content available right on the home screen
  • Switched to the latest version of Google Maps to display maps quicker than the old version with less memory and network bandwidth!

So prove you're smarter than all your other "tech-expert" friends by getting the latest tech news and gossip a solid 20 minutes (an eternity in Internet speak) before they do.

Go ahead and download it here.

TechCrunch for iPhone: The Best Tech Research Tool, Now In Your Pocket

If you're a fan of our TechCrunch app, then you're already aware just how awesome it is to have all the latest tech news with full Crunchbase integration at your fingertips. Problem is, no-one wants to lug around a device in their back pocket, not even that brand new iPad Mini you just bought. We have good news. Today, TechCrunch is proud to announce the roll out of the all-in-one tech research tool to iPhone.

'But wait', we hear you say, 'the TechCrunch app is so killer because I can dig up lots of information on trending tech stories and use Crunchbase to check out the companies and key players behind those stories. I can follow the social buzz from other tech writers, cache stories for offline reading later and spend hours of my day down the tech rabbit hole. Even with the 4 inch screen on my iPhone 5, there's just no way you packed all that in.'

Yes, yes we did.

We even added video to the home screen so you can quickly watch the latest videos from TechCrunch TV. It's available for iOS right now. Download it here.

Oh, and one more thing - we have an Android version in the works. Stay tuned.
