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.

Takes a while for it to learn your likes, but now keeps me up to date with what I care about quite effectively. The widget could do with a design overhaul though!
Love having the world's happenings all in one app. I ck in @ least once a day, @ least. Thanks!
Happy the app works so nicely. I get valuable info from sources I can trust. Nice to select areas I am interested in without being forced to read through garbage.
I've tried several other news apps, NONE come close to News 360. The reason for 4 starts, once in a while I will get a F/C. When those are completely gone, 5 stars.
Really like how I can click through every story in a easier manner. Great app to keep up to date in a few seconds.
