SkyGrid Launches on Android Tablets

SILICON VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 22, 2011) - SkyGrid today announced the launch of SkyGrid for Android Tablets. With SkyGrid, Android Tablet users can easily follow the interests they care about.

"We're excited about combining the speed, power, and large display of Android Tablets with SkyGrid's simple ability to follow your interests," said Kevin Pomplun, SkyGrid's CEO. "Now everyone with an Android Tablet has an easy way to stay up to date on the interests they care about."

The new SkyGrid has been custom designed and tailored for Android tablets. Every interest provides a colorful and constantly updating stream of photos, all of which lead to more information with a single tap. SkyGrid users are effortlessly able to follow their own topics and get updates on only the interests they care about. The ability to follow any interest -- sports teams, entertainers, political figures, etc -- has continued to make SkyGrid a popular and highly rated app.

While easy to use, SkyGrid is powered by incredible technology. SkyGrid streams information from over 1 million sources across the Web (mainstream news, social sites, blogs, etc) processing over 1,000 items per second. SkyGrid's patented algorithm "Information Velocity" then determines which information is moving the fastest, and delivers real-time updates.

The SkyGrid App for Android Tablets is available for free from the Android Market at https://market.android.com/details?id=com.skygrid.android.
