The News: UK Newspaper Edition (Free) is the ultimate App for getting the latest UK (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales) news from all the UK’s top newspapers, from broadsheets to tabloids. With our EasyRead technology you can decide to view the full articles in perfect newspaper format right from the App!

We’re confident that you will love our carefully developed UK Newspaper App, as many others are just links to the newspaper’s website making them essentially useless (why not just go to the website) and often difficult to read!

The News is different. We use a perfectly clean and standard Android interface to bring you all the top UK Newspapers and online publications, including:

- The Sun
- The Daily Mail
- The Daily Mirror
- The Telegraph
- The Daily Star
- The Express
- The Guardian
- BBC News
- Sky News
- The Independent
- The Morning Star
- The Times*
- The Financial Times (FT)*

Our EasyRead technology means that after you have decided which publication(s) you’re interested in, you can read the articles much the same as using an eReader. Its clearly laid out with many options, including search capability, font sizes, text streaming and many others.

There is also full social media integration, with all articles able to be published via Facebook, Twitter, G+ or good old email. Readability functionality also allows you to send the article to your Kindle if you would like to read it at a later date.

You can also change the order that the newspapers appear, so that they are in displayed in order of your choosing. Just drag and drop them around to get the layout exactly as you like it. The same applies for the sections within each paper. The sections that the App covers include the following (amongst others):

- Top Stories
- Sport
- TV & Showbiz
- Health
- Science & Technology
- Money
- Travel
- Finance
- Football
- Formula One
- Politics
- Culture
- Celebrities
- Gossip
- Film
- Radio
- Motoring
- Food & Drink
- Recipes
- Rugby Union
- Rugby League
- Cycling
- Golf

We really hope that you enjoy our application and encourage you to send us any feedback (positive or negative) that you feel will make the application better in the future. Click on the feedback button if you would like to give us any feedback.

* Note that readers will have to have their own account to read these papers, but you can still get the full headlines.

    Not easy on the eye, sorry. Deleted before even using it.

    But... The Daily Star link doesn't work (just says the app has stopped working). Haven't tried all the links but something obviously needs fixing before I can give a 5.

    After making the break from iOS the only thing i really missed was a decent newspaper summary app. The majority of apps just point you directly at the website of the corresponding paper without giving a summary, this is where The News excels by giving you that summary feed. Really like this and it has become a must have on all my devices, Nexus 7, S2 and S3
