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!

Introducing the AOL App for iPad: Debuts at Number 1!

Today, we launched the AOL app for the iPad. Now available in the App Store, the AOL app ensures you always know what matters now.

Whether it is happening in Washington, Wall Street, Hollywood, or Main Street, the AOL app will always surface the day's key stories. The app learns a user's preferences and reflects individualized programming based on their personal news interests. The app allows users to actively customize their top level news stream to see more (or less) of the stories and videos they want. Users can also save stories or videos for later, or quickly share them via email, Facebook or Twitter.

We designed the app to let users create their own browsing experience. It delivers AOL's best news, videos, trending stories and lifestyle info, and presents them in an engaging "news stream" format.

In addition, the app gives AOL members integrated access to the brand-new, tablet-optimized AOL Mail experience. Members can read and send emails, easily email their favorite stories to friends, and scan newsletters and programming alerts without launching new apps or going into a separate environment.

This is just the beginning of our work on the AOL app. It harkens backs to our core values of making the Internet easy and fun. An app for the Android tablet, as well as mobile apps for both Android and iPhone, are in the works and will be available later this year. We will continue to add new features and look forward to feedback.


The app is available for download by following this link to the App Store on an iPad, or click here to receive an email with the link.

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.

Introducing Huffington

We're proud to announce the launch of our new iPad magazine, Huffington. With nearly 500 editors and reporters who produce between 70 and 80 original reported stories each day, Huffington is our way of putting the best content together in a new, weekly magazine app for a slower, more in-depth Huffington Post experience.

Available in the App Store Newsstand today, Huffington incorporates Huffington Post's unmatched live commenting and other social engagement tools to allow for greater reader participation in richly detailed and probing narratives -- while also showcasing HuffPost's brand of Pulitzer Prize-winning feature writing. Huffington's elegant design takes full advantage of the iPad's signature Retina display, offering our audience a crisp reading experience, vibrant photography, and stunning graphics.

Each week, Huffington will lead off with a primer on the news of the week, enticing Q&As, powerful photo essays, sophisticated data visualizations, top-tier commentary, and notable quotes from the HuffPost community. Long-form journalism anchors the core of the magazine, with carefully-crafted features exploring a broad range of topics including politics, business, entertainment, technology, foreign affairs, the environment, sports, religion, and relationships.

Heroes Wanted: Join AOL's Mobile Team

Hi, my name is Sabrina, and I'm a recruiter on the AOL Talent Acquisition team. I'm excited to be the first to contribute to a new series for the AOL Blog that we're calling "Heroes Wanted." The series aims to bring you some of the most exciting employment opportunities within the many teams at AOL. This first post goes in search of heroes to join our Mobile development team, who build some of the most fun and well-regarded mobile products in the business!

In a world where millions of people use our products every month*, we rely on the power and pluck of the mobile software engineers to save the day. You were put on this earth to make a difference and we want to harness, develop and foster your skills and talent to help you achieve that goal. We are focused on the future. We have a solid plan in place to become the largest online content provider in the world and we're making strides every day. But what I truly think differentiates us from other companies are our people. We collaborate and work as a team creating a real sense of community.

We're searching for developers that are passionate about mobile technology. We have a dynamic team full of creative, ingenious AOLers that work hard and play hard. They've already made amazing products like my personal favorites Moviefone for iPad, Engadget Distro and AOL Play. To win the war on bad applications, we are on a mission to find the few, the proud, the super-talented. Our goal is to build intuitive and engaging mobile applications that even your parents can use. This means solving complex, unique and large-scale problems, working with a passionate team and creating compelling apps for the Android and iOS platforms. You'll battle dark forces daily and continually improve processes and tools to make the web a better place for all civilians.

Think you have what it takes? Can you answer Yes to all of the following questions?
  • I have built high quality web applications that were published in the Android Market/Google Play and/or the Apple AppStore. I'll tell you all about them.
  • When I build applications, I always consider how to create a great end-user experience because if I don't look out for those little guys, who will?
  • I have a passion for mobile device technologies and a desire to increase my cadre of technology powers.
  • I enjoy working within a league of other code heroes. Building apps is a team sport and I excel at communications – especially with team members and product or business owners.
  • Also? I have a B.S. in Computer Science or a related field. My coding superpowers extend to Java and Android development and/or Objective-C/C++/C, Cocoa Touch and iOS development. Plus, I have hands-on experience developing software using object-oriented programming and killer design skills. Duh, obviously. I am a code superhero after all.
