Channel 4 has launched a dedicated 4oD application for Android tablets and smartphones – 16 months after making its debut on iOS. The free app hosts a wide selection of programmes from Channel 4, E4 and More4, past and present, and is now available to download from Google Play and will soon be available from the Samsung App Store.

The app will enable users to browse for programmes by date or category, scroll through an A to Z list or select from specialist interest collections such as Eternal Students, Live Laughs and Chef Specials.
The app can be downloaded on most Android devices running operating systems version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and above and is currently optimised for the following: Google Nexus 7, Google Nexus S, Google Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC Desire S, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
