News Suite is a two-in-one news app featuring a new two-tab concept: switch between the "News" tab, where you can find out about all the latest current affairs, and the "My Feeds" tab, where you can read up on all the news that's most relevant to your own interests.
App Details ∙ All the latest current affairs are rounded up in the "News" tab: read up on such a wide range of seperately organized genres as "General News," "Entertainment," "Sports," "Food," and more. ∙ Enjoy a personalized selection of news relating to your own interests in the "My Feeds" tab. ∙ It couldn't be simpler to customize the "My Feeds" tab for yourself. Just choose topics from the News feed lists or enter in your favorite keywords. ∙ With the hugely popular "Keyword Register," just enter in the names of your favorite celebrities, companies, or the place you live, and instantly catch up on all the latest news about them sorted in chronological order. ∙ Save articles you're interested in to your bookmarks list, or share them to Facebook or Twitter ∙ Make sure you don't miss out on the most important news with push notifications.
★ As of the release date of January 18th, the following functions will no longer be supported. Thank you for your understanding. ∙ Browsing on Twitter ∙ Browsing YouTube
