my6sense is a social news feeds for Android
Unlike other similar apps, my6sense isn't displayed in rows (grid-like), but in a vertical scrolling time line. Actually you can even sort that timeline by last posted or by source. You can add as many streams as you want but take into account that first you need to sign up (from the app) my6sense. Then you will be able to add streams categorized in Topics (Android, Business, Celebs and Gossip, Economy and Finance...), Social (Twitter, Facebook, Buzz, so far), Import from gReader or enter adresses from the Website. In this regard, in some devices, greader import doesn't work properly, although we've noticed no problems with a SGS.
You can add as many streams as you want. They'll be placed as "Folders". You can also view, rename or delete the streams you don't want to see anymore. Make it your own. Youcan save specific posts in order to read it later. There's a specific folder for read articles.
my6sense is set in a kind green and white layout. However, it's poor compared to other similar apps. my6sense isn't as visual as other. It isn't displayed in a grid what makes more difficult to see at a glance lots of posts from different sources. This makes it less user-friendly.
Despite of that, my6sense is still one of the social news feed app that should be taken into account. Although isn't as good-looking as other, it's more simple. Perfect for those who're worried about battery leaks and data consumption.
