Is there any app available in the Android Market for Stack Exchange sites?

This question exists because it has historical significance, but it is not considered a good, on-topic question for this site, so please do not use it as evidence that you can ask similar questions here. This question and its answers are frozen and cannot be changed. More info: help center.

A good resource to find the currently state of art Android App for Stackexchange is the highest voted android tag Q&A on stackapps‌​. Droidstack isn't really maintained any more. –  Flow Jan 28 '13 at 20:57

There are a couple of apps out there like Droidstack and StackWidget. Both of the apps can work together. I've just installed them, but so far you can't seem to answer or respond to questions with them. You can though, follow your questions and get notifications when you get answers. Droidstack is a question browser, and StackWidget lets you watch specific questions.

There is also TopStack for question browsing and SOflair for reputation monitoring. Having tried them.

The SOAPI doesn't allow write access at the moment so no app will allow you answer questions. Go for droidstack. –  Callum Rogers Sep 16 '10 at 18:53
Droidstack only notifies me of rep changes. Shouldn't it notify me when I get mentioned, when my question is answered, etc? –  Malabarba Jan 13 '11 at 17:29
@Bruce currently the "inbox" is not available yet to the API, but will be in version 2.0. Version 3.0 will include write access via API. –  Bryan Denny Feb 15 '11 at 14:11
@Bryan Cool. Is there an expected date for the new versions? –  Malabarba Feb 15 '11 at 18:12

The official Stack Exchange app is now available in the Play Store.

There just happens to be such a tool. It's not an actual application, but it works quite well with and is optimized for Android phones and tablets.

Some of the features you will find:

  • Full access to all questions, answers, comments, and users on the site.
  • Full question and user search capability.
  • The ability to easily switch between StackMobile and the equivalent page on the main site.
  • View tags and tag wiki excerpts as well as questions with certain tags.
  • View user profiles including a user's top 5 question / answers.
  • The ability to quickly share pages using social network buttons.

DroidStack seems to be the ticket. Android Market Link

Thanks for sharing. It would be great if its directly available from app store. –  Silent Warrior Sep 14 '10 at 17:13
That's where I downloaded it from; sorry, I have a helluva time linking to pages in the AndroidMarket..... hrm... that remind me –  Michael Paulukonis Sep 14 '10 at 17:15

There is a site specifically for apps that use the Stack Exchange API(s): Stack Apps.

If you're looking for Stack Exchange apps for Android, simply look under the android tag there.


I recently had the opportunity to try Stack Remote, which features an incredibly well-designed interface that looks really slick:

As is the case with all other apps that use the latest version of the API (2.1 at the time of this writing), there is no support for asking and answering questions. However, the app is handy for checking your inbox and quickly browsing questions.
