Isis Android app launched to let supporters keep up with news and propaganda

The app isn’t available through the mainstream Google Play Store, the normal way that Android users get new software. But it is being made available by supporters through uploads — allowing anyone to download the code and run it on their phone.

Isis supporters may have looked to create the app because they are steadily being kicked off the mainstream social networks, taking away a previously effective way of spreading propaganda and news. Twitter in particular has become a battleground in recent months — as Isis supporters look to distribute propaganda and co-ordinate, while the site looks to shut the worst offenders down.

A similar project was launched earlier this year — Khalefabook, a social network built for Isis supporters — but the amateur site was buckling soon after it was introduced.
