Top 5 News Aggregator Apps on Android

Best ways to keep up to date on Android

We're the best-informed generation ever, with a whole world of up-to-date news literally at our fingertips. The trouble is, it's hard to get a rounded picture of what's going on from a 4-inch Android device.

It's also horrible to read most news websites on your phone, unless they've been rebuilt from scratch with mobiles in mind. What you need is a news aggregator. Yep, an app that pulls in all the news you're likely to be interested in and presents it all in an attractive, easy-to-read mobile format.

Without any further ado, then, let's consider the Top 5 news aggregators on Android.

Quick, quick... before this becomes old news.

The undisputed king of news aggregators is on Android and better than ever. Flipboard pulls in news on subjects you're interested in - as with all the other apps on this list - and does so in arguably the nicest-looking way. It takes a magazine-like approach that makes wonderful use of large images. The flip-over interface is just a joy to use.

Pulse News is technically an RSS feed app like Google Reader, so it pulls in news from your chosen sources. But, it's done in such an intuitive and visually appealing way that it blurs the lines somewhat. Pulse News includes a nice image-heavy news grid which serves to give you an overview of the latest news, while also providing recommendations like a true aggregator.

What News360 lacks with its somewhat functional appearance, it makes up for with the cleverness and detail in its design. Like the others on this chart, it pulls in stories based on the subjects that interest you. Jump into a story, however, and it will collate related images, links, and other resources to give you a more complete and rounded view of the subject. It also works to cut out story duplication.

Google's own news aggregator app, Google Currents, opts for a clean, elegant magazine format for its news aggregation. It pulls in your RSS feeds, plus trending stories from some of the world's leading publishers. It also pulls in the meat of the day's stories for offline viewing, so moving into a no-signal area needn't leave you in the dark.

Zite takes the personalised approach to news aggregation, noting your browsing habits and honing its coverage accordingly. Every time you use it to check out the news, it learns what you like and makes sure to push similar content to the fore on your next visit. Furthermore, it'll track your social network feeds and note any hot topics, then supply you with related news. Slightly spooky, but oh-so-convenient.
