"Very Nice News Hub App"

Reviewed by / May 28, 2015

Brings news from loads of different sources to one app


SmartNews brings news from loads of different internet sources to one app, and does it well. It looks good, and is very user friendly. It's only down side is a lack of originality, although this is one of the better apps of this sort.


Smartnews looks great, and brings you news from loads of different sources. It can notify you of new news up to three times a day, and can fetch data in the background, to decrease loading times. It also has a 'smart view' mode, which optimizes the news page to load faster.


The only con is a lack of originality - there are a lot of apps of this sort. This app is better than most however.

    Does what it's intended in giving quick offline access to stories. Just wish I could find an aggregate "news" app that didn't auto choose crap sources for its feeds. Unfortunately, quality sources for news reports are a rare find these days.

    I love how easy to use this app is, and really appreciate the Smart View feature that allows for faster load times if I've got bad service. I also like that it gets news from all kinds of sources, which prevents me from getting a one sided view of whatever story I'm reading. Furthermore, I love being able to add specific sources to my tabs, so I can get my gaming news and articles from the Onion a
