NowThis News, the video news app launched last year on iOS (s AAPL) by former Huffington Post executives Ken Lerer and Eric Hippeau, launched on Android (s GOOG) Thursday afternoon.

As we reported last fall, NowThis provides “a combination of original and third-party news videos” aimed at mobile users. There are about 1,500 videos available so far, and the company plans to add more.

NowThis is also launching an updated version of its iPad app soon. Among other things, the app will allow users to save up to 100 videos to their iPads for offline viewing.
