News360 for TVs
5,000 - 10,000 downloads
- Social integration (FB, TW, G+, Evernote, Greader)
- Read It Later integration too
- +10K sources
- Good-looking layout
- It would be great to add personal non-English sources
News360 is a news reader which integrates more than 10K sources in a concise and useful stream
Keeping informed is becoming easier thanks to apps like News360. It provides both a mobile device and web platform to set out your own news channels. You can add categories and sources that match with your interest. There are over 10K sources, all of them English-speaking though.
Actually the amount of sources is one of its strongest point and one of its catches: it would be good if we could integrate our RSS subscription from Google Reader. Although there's a Google Reader sync option, it just looks for your interests, that's it, the topics (categories) in which your subscriptions are. It would be great if it allows both: built-in sources and personal sources integration.
And that's a pity because regarding the rest of features, this is one of the most complete and good-looking reader we've reviewed so far. It allows you to connect to your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, G+, Instapaper, Evernote, GReader) to track your interests. What's more, you can add your Read It Later account in order to add articles to your reading list easily. There are lots of settings like use GPS locations to find nearby news, enable HQ images over 3G or preload web view on WiFi only. Although it's not compulsory, it's recommendable to create a news360.com account, otherwise you won't be able to enjoy all these features.
Add, remove or edit categories and resources to your categories. Use the search bar to find an specific topic or check out your "saved" articles that you can even read offline.
In a nutshell, a complete new reader, with a stunning social integration that only needs to integrate one thing: personal sources/subscriptions on non-English speaking. Despite of that, highly recommendable.

My Favorite News App
I used this app on my iPhone now use it on my android phone, tablet, and now TV! Thanks News360 Team keep up the great work. Oh and I love the Web site also! Ps the widget for the TV does not work!
So far enjoyable
just took their suggestion to connect more accounts. I'll add more later if my continuing use changes my review.
I see NO flaws. Awesome App!! Will download to my EVO, very impressive!
clever ... no documentation, requires 3rd party accounts, with different ones on different platforms (no google on google tv!). No controls or user fine tuning.
NEWS on Google TV
We will give it more stars (4+) when the wiget works on the home pg.
