"The daily updates you want to receive"

News and social timelines, all merged in one single app

Sony's news app Socialife has become really popular among Sony devices' owners. Fortunately, from now on all users will be able to download and enjoy it, no matter from which device.

Socialife brings together all the news feeds you care about, including your social timelines. You can link your Facebook and Twitter account to the app and receive tweets and updates from your friends right in the same place where you read tech or sports news.

That's cool, right? However, if you are a news junkie you are likely using a similar service already. Why should you change it? It's true that the core features of Socialife aren't groundbreaking. Nonetheless, the added-value feature of Sony's news app is its design and intuitiveness.

Socialife's interface is neat and polished. Navigation is smooth even with flip page effects, and the way headlines for each source are displayed is simple and clear. Likewise, the amount of sources is impressive. It's a pity though that you cannot add your own sources or import your RSS subscriptions. However, as I said, your news need can be fully covered with the preset sources in the app.

In a nutshell, a beautiful, smooth and intuitive news app with social integration that any Android user can now enjoy to the fullest. Recommended.
