The News App is not just another reader app. It's dead simple, with a simple philosophy: open, read.
You get around 10 news items per category. Read them, or swipe them away. Share them even, if you're into that kind of thing. But don't expect adding feeds, sections, configuration, etc. Too confusing right? Ach, we agree. So messy and annoying.
The News is also great tablet app! So fire up those tablets and enjoy one of the most polished Android news apps around.
* Scrollable home screen widget!
* Android beam support! That's right folks- don't just show your friends the news: beam it to them baby!
* Actual, real, honest tablet support. We didn't just stretch this bad boy and call it "tablet friendly". Who in their right mind would do that? everyonelese ... We designed this from the ground up for a specific tablet reading experience. With good ol' fragments and all. Portrait and landscape. Boom.
* Bezel Swipe! DID YOU HEAR THAT??? Yes, the rumours are true. The News for Android supports bezel swiping. Please, no autographs now.
