We are bringing you a list of the 5 best news reader apps for iOS.
Download News Reader Apps for iPhone February 2014
Flipboard is unarguably the most popular news reader app of them all. The popularity of the app is clearly evident where HTC has even incorporated this app as a separate Homescreen in its Sense UI to bring the user the best and the everything of the lot and now on iOS. What Flipboard does is that it brings everything print and paper to you in a digital way. It is minimalist and simple to use and you can always subscribe to your favourites which you want. The best part is that you can select each article you want and you can make a magazine about it by adding your favourites so that you can get an exclusive of them directly ready for you and you won’t have to keep searching for them among the many subscriptions on your Apple devices.
2) LinkedIn Pulse:
If you have used Flipboard before, then you will find pulse to be somewhat similar. The interface and the layout though, is a bit different. It is not difficult per se, but has immense amount of information from myriad sources, and most importantly, it is uses sorting feature where the articles are featured and sorted according to publishers and topics. The best part of this is you can always keep subscribing to your favourite topics ranging from technology, health, daily news, general updates, etc.
Zinio is one of the best ever available cross platform news apps available. The reason being Zinio first of all gives a wide range of categories to choose our news from, and secondly it is a cross platform app it is available for all Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows 8 desktop, everything. And the best part is even though it is a pay per subscription app, the synchronisation is uniform and automatic. You have to pay once and you will be able to enjoy the news across all platforms at the same time.
Pocket is actually more of a “read it later” app. This is because this app works in the background all the time, and if you stumble across anything interesting or news that you want to check out without leaving your current task at hand, then you just have to save this to Pocket and pocket then will get the news article of whatever it is on your local phone storage by downloading it. And then when you finally get the free time for it like while saying travelling or just relaxing at home on the couch, then you can open up the app and check all the stuff out that you had saved for checking out later. Since because you choose the content you want to see, that’s why there are no subscriptions on offer for this app. Also the UI is simplistic without many photos to save data, but if you want the original feel, there is always a link to the original page, where you can check it out.
The inclusion of this app is actually a bit of a surprise package because Circa is relatively new one and also because it does not quite follow the usual way other news reading apps follow. This being because the basic fundamental which this app does not incorporate is that it does not just source the news directly from other sources and publishes it. Instead Circa has its own back end team of editors and reporters who take the news and publish it on their own. The news is in the form of snippets and small paragraphs with all the basic important details. This makes the news much more efficient and completely revolutionizes the way news on mobile is presented and read.
