    I like this one among all the different apps I tried. Keeping it. Tried on multiple versions of Android and the UX is the same / consistent.

    This is one of the few apps which support login functionality. This is the only app which looks nice and even beautiful. It's the only app which have notifications. It's the fastest and smoothest. It doesn't reload the news list when it doesn't need to.

    Best feature: ability to choose between internal webview and external web browser. It makes great use of the Android design principles. This is the way an android app should be.
