News360: Personalized News
500,000 - 1,000,000 downloads
- Social integration (FB, TW, G+, Evernote, Greader)
- Read It Later integration too
- +10000 sources
- Profile on both web and mobile platform
- 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.
You can review them and remove any that you don't really want to read about (and remember - you'll always be able to edit them later on). Press done when you're ready to enjoy your personalized news experience.

Change may be great, but not this time; bring back the prior version with the "List View" option! Not as user friendly; uninstalling!
Goods news aggregator
I have used News 360 for years. However, the recent interface changes have made it totally worthless. Headlines have been replaced with giant, vague pictures. The information density is so low that I spend more time struggling to find out what the stories are than it's worth to me. It's pretty, but non-functional as a news source.
This is great, nice interface I love it! On a Nexus 10 and Nexus 5
Once again another great app ruined for no reason. Very ugly UI with no list view or customization like the older version. It's also very slow. Not everyone wants a shiny, amateurish interface so at least include an option for list view. For those of you who also dislike his new update I suggest you look at News Republic. Much better app.
