One of the most used mobile news applications out there was Circa. This application came with an intuitive user interface and it seems that a lot of people are enjoying using it for that. However, the application was shut down on June 24, when the developers realized that they can’t keep it alive, most likely because of the money.
Even if we don’t have the “perfect” alternative to Circa, today we’re going to talk about other top news applications that you will most likely want to install on your smartphone.
Inside.com – Breaking News
In order to use the Inside.com application, you will need to create an account. After that, you will need to select the topics that interest you. Next, the application will give you results based on the topics that you’ve selected and will send you notifications when new articles are posted on a specific topic (that you’ve chosen).
It is surely one of the applications that you will want to install on your smartphone. It seems that the guys who are researching for news are doing a great job on writing summaries about them. If you like how a curator writes the news, you will be able to follow him/her and get notified when (s)he posts a new article.
NYT Now application is the first application from the legendary publication (The New York Times). You can use it without signing up and it’s totally free. NYD editors write around 30 stories a day which you can read, which is pretty awesome.
One of the best things about NYT Now is that the quality of the articles is superior and you will enjoy reading them. The application is works like a charm and the articles load very fast in the built-in browser.
BuzzFed News application is for the people who live in the US. This is because their journalists are from there and they will write articles about what’s happening in the USA. When you open the application, you will see topics of the biggest stories, which are updated every couple of hours.
Below, you will notice the latest news regarding in the US such as business, politics and technology. You can also subscribe to BuzzFeed alerts sections in order to get notifications when the articles are updated or when new articles are added.
Breaking News +
This application will be enjoyed by those guys out there who usually read only the headlines of the news. These types of guys know everything that goes around without even reading the news. If you are that kind of person, then you will surely enjoy using the Breaking News + application. You can even subscribe to breaking news that happen around your city or for a specific topic that you want to follow (such as the Greek debt crisis).
The downside of this application is that the articles are not integrated into the application. When you want to open an article, a new web page will open with that specific article. This is why we’ve told you that Breaking News + is the best application that you want to install, in order to get notified about what’s happening around you, without being forced to read large texts about the whole stories, just the headlines.
