Top Rated iPhone Apps To Read News Global or Local

Recently I read an article on a newspaper that 40 percent readers have stopped subscribing newspapers at their home and most of these users are youth who use tech gizmos to cover every piece of information related to news, while they are on move.

There are lots of applications which can help you to get acquainted with the latest news around the world, but most of the apps cover only one news source. For example, NYTimes, this application will cover the news available on NYTimes only and moreover this app is free but after reading few articles you will have to pay a charge to read any further articles.

Today we will mention only those applications which will help you to cover the news from all of your favorite resources.

Apps to Use for News Reading

1. Pulse News

I still remember that this was my first application which I installed for news reading. While you start up with this application, you will have to add resource points, from where the fresh news will be collected. This application covers almost all the news points available on internet. You will not randomly search them by just typing their name in the search field, but you will go to a category and then scroll down the list to search them, if you do not find that source point then you will search them.
The only drawback with the app is its not-so-good User Interface.

2. Google Current

This application is also very similar to the above mentioned app. You will add the news source in the exactly similar way, the only difference is the way the news is displayed. In Google Current, news will be displayed in pages format, whereas in Pulse you will see that the news will be available on a page long enough to contain that news fully in it.
I am not quite familiar with current version but its previous used to crash again and again.

3. Flipboard

As far as UI is concerned this application rules, but this application is quite different from the application mentioned above. It describes itself as the social news magazine, so it will get synced to your social account like Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, Facebook and many more and then it will display all the new updated related to your social account. It is like watching the news feeds of all the social accounts at a single point. Well as far as Facebook is concerned, Pulse can do the same.

4. Reeder

This application rules the chart as far as news collection is concerned (it is obviously a paid app), especially for the users who are Google Reader, Readability or Fever. You will add any of the used account in that application and then it will provide you all the resources added. Its UI is also pretty good, you will only have to click the news headlines and you will be taken to a short description. Now if you will tap it again then it will show you the website description of the page or if you will tap the readability icon ‘sofa’ icon then it will show you only the important content of the article. You can also transfer the article to pocket, Instapaper and many other reading accounts

5. Fluent news Reader

I have not seen much of this application on internet but it claims to cover the news from all the top news sources and also allows you to share them. Rest of all the features are covered by the application mentioned above.

All the applications mentioned above will help you to get the latest news and sharing of a news article to any of your social account is possible is all the applications mentioned above. There are other applications for news, but we have avoided the apps which are confined to only one news source.
