If self-proclaimed news junky is one characteristic you’d use to describe yourself, then you’re like us. Always wanting to stay on top of the latest stories, is easy with cool apps like these, to get all the news and updates you need. With so many apps to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow down the right ones (gotta save those precious MBs). Here are our top picks for quick installation, ease of use and consistently fresh content and more.
Yahoo News Digest
This app is easy to set up and offers a customized experience per user. Tell Yahoo News Digest what kind of news you’re interested in and how often you want it sent to you. As stories break, notifications let you know in a formatted post similar to a text message. The articles are taken from news sources around the world making the app a global news aggregator. Top sources include the Associated Press, Reuters, Business Insider, AFP news and more.
New York Times
One of the best in-depth news sources of all time, the New York Times has earned the respect of readers around the globe. If you’re looking for high-quality, detailed coverage of leading stories, nationwide and globally, download the New York Times application. Its style, coverage and presentation makes it a serious contender.
The AP (Associated Press) is one of the oldest news wires in the United States, with a span of 243 news bureaus in over 120 countries. Many news sources, including Yahoo, pull stories from The AP wire for their readers. So why not go straight to the source? The AP App keeps you connected with breaking news from top journalists all around the world.
Podcasts: TED NPR Radio Hour Podcasts
For those of you who have a daily commute, whether driving, biking, or riding the train, listening to an enlightening podcast from some of the world’s brightest commentators is a great way to start your day. TED, an acronym for Technology Education and Design, started as a one-off conference, that quickly grew into an annual meeting. Now, there are spin offs happening all around the world with TEDx events and more. Hosted by NPR’s award-winning reporter, Guy Raz, the TED Radio Hour is a well-thought, curated show that includes common themes based on some of the best TED speakers.
If you don’t already have this app, you should. BuzzFeed is known for having funny, entertaining and sometimes obnoxious articles, but that’s why we love it. Life can be so serious, which means a good viral kitten video or outlandish quiz is necessary every once and a while. If you don’t get too caught up with irresistible headlines (enter: ’21 Photos Guaranteed to Make You Laugh Every Time’), there’s also a hard news articles feed.
Here are some mobile accessories from Incipio that will keep you reading and listening to more news on the go without worrying about prying eyes.
