Top 6 iOS News Apps
News apps should be able to bring you all the news that matter to you. They have to let you choose what categories and areas that interest you and filter the headlines based on your preferences. Most news apps have this feature, and we hope that future updates will let all apps provide quality services to those that use them.
News Republic is a very good looking app that allows users to create custom news feeds where they can add only the news that matter to them. This gives it a personal touch and makes it much more intuitive and simple to use. Also, users have the possibility to share their news via social networks or email.

Users of the app can also rate news and see other ratings, this makes it easier to find the best news. Also, the developers of News Republic, offer a wide variety of news apps that you should check out. One more app will be featured in this top.
News360 got its name because it can do something that no other apps can do: it learns and provides better services. This app does not need you to customize the news feed or add certain websites because it analyzes your browsing patterns and your social networks and learns what interests you the most. By knowing this, News360 compiles a list of preferences and only gives you content that is important to you.
Also, for top news, the app does something even more interesting: it searches for other websites that have published that story and it generates a complete article with all the information and pictures from all of them. This is what makes the app truly 360!

It has also been featured in our top of the best Android news apps and this is definite statement of how of an app it is. Its functionality is flawless, it looks gorgeous and gives users the possibility to add almost any category they want.
One drawback of the app is the fact that it does not allow users to add their own feeds, but to honest, after using the app for some time, I have not felt the need to add or remove any of the news suppliers that the app has.
Google has accustomed us with top notch quality services for a long time and their Currents app is no exception to this rule. Google Currents allows users to create custom news feeds and add as many providers as they want. This makes the app highly customizable and extremely easy to use.

You can select a specific news provider to see all their headlines, or just sift through your feed as you would in a regular news app. The build quality and impressive design make Google Currents one of the best iOS news apps of all.

In addition, you can also connect your Google Reader account to the app, and by linking it, you will have at your disposal more customized news, from the providers that you already follow on the Google service. This almost eliminates the need for having the Google app and you can still see all the best headlines from your favorite websites.
