Today, there are many news apps you can download to stay informed on local news and current affairs. However, several apps collect articles from a large pool of sources. These sources are then incorporated with different types of reporting. Rendering such news ‘authenticate’ may not always be correct. Hence, you must pick an app that gives you reliable news updates.
Here is a list of celebrated apps for their authenticity for all – international, national, and local news. These news apps are free to download on Android and Apple devices. Some apps also have premium, paid versions available.
Acknowledged to be one of the most popular news apps, Feedly is an RSS reader and hence, gives you prompt updates on what’s happening around you. It integrates with Facebook, IFTTT, Twitter, Evernote, OneNote, Pinterest, Linked In, and many other digital news platforms. Furthermore, you can access the news feed via your mobile phone or on your desktop with their website.
Feedly is a rock-solid option with over 40 million feeds in total featuring news from states and all across the globe.
Needless to say, Microsoft News is a great way to keep up with not just international news but also local news. All you need to do is download the app, select the topics which interest you, and receive a feed with news curated by Microsoft employees.
Microsoft News service syncs the app and the web automatically for cross-platform support. This helps to get you a good mixture of both left and right-leaning political news sites. Additionally, you get an option to save articles for later that interest you. There is truly a pool of news on this app.
Perhaps one of the more famous apps when it comes to local news. With reliable sources to back the news, this news app also covers national and international news. The subreddits let you see various industry-specific news. From fashion to technology, and everything between, you will find it all here.
Unlike other news apps, Reddit may not have many power-user features but nails the basic experience very well. The community can be a tad vapid sometimes, but that’s only if you are interested in the discussions. When it comes to news, however, it is one of the better news apps.
Your local news apps:
Depending on the region you live in, many local newspapers have also taken to the digital platform. For instance, Dainik Bhaskar now offers you all national and local news online in Hindi through its app.
While focusing on international news, you tend to lose track of what’s happening in your city. The Dainik Bhaskar news app is a great way to update what’s happening in your town and the surrounding cities. The interface is user-friendly and pretty easy to navigate across various news segments. Furthermore, like other news apps, you can also bookmark an interesting piece of news and read it later.
