"News Hub App"

Reviewed by / May 28, 2015

A news hub app that collects and presents news from multiple sources

THE VERDICT

NewsLoop collects and displays news from loads of different sources around the internet. Overall the app is nice enough, but it has some flaws, most of which are just strange.

THE PROS

NewsLoop is a nice app for keeping up with news, showing you news from loads of different internet sources. It has a built in viewer, and lets you switch between reader and web view, web view being a more standard web browser view.

THE CONS

Most of the issues are a little odd in that there seems to be no reason for them. Sometimes to read a whole article you will have to switch to web view, but switching back to reader, the whole article will now be available. The app also prompts you to choose a country when you first start it, telling you that you will not be able to change your country after it is selected, ever.
