Native digg app for Android coming soon

Every time I open AppAware, I find myself discovering some new Android app I’ve never heard of. Recently I have noticed that someone was working on an official app for digg. The company already has a great mobile site, but this was the first I had heard of a native application. I searched the web and could find nothing about a beta app, so I asked our readers for help in the forums.

It took a couple days, but someone found exactly what we were looking for. Digg confirmed today that their Android app is already in testing and the launch is coming soon. This is not exactly shocking news since digg said they were working on an iPhone app over five months ago, but at least it is nice to know.

In the most recent version of diggnation, Kevin Rose gives a quick demo of the iPhone version (21:00 mark). It has the same look and feel as the mobile site, but with a ton of new features added in.

I still have not found out how to get in the beta, so someone let me know if they are taking signups. We would love to test the app out.
