Best Free Android News Aggregators

Best Free Android News Aggregators

A news aggregator is software which collates news, weblog posts, and other information from the web so that they can be read in a central place for fast, convenient viewing. Given the plethora of news sources that are available on the net, news aggregators play a vital role in enabling surfers to find breaking news and articles of particular interest.

Mobile devices are particularly useful to keep up with the latest news whilst on the move. However, given the patchy WiFi and 3G connections when out and about, visiting individual websites can be far too time-consuming (and also expensive if you are paying per MB). Fortunately, there is a wide range of Android news aggregator software which helps to make reading news and articles on the move a truly pleasurable experience.

In this article, we identify the best free news aggregators that are available on the Android platform. It is important to appreciate that some news aggregator apps can be very demanding on battery life, so we have chosen quality apps that are also mindful of the need to keep background network activity to a minimum.

There are a number of different file formats which information publishers use. The most frequent ones are RSS and Atom. RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. It is a defined standard based on XML with the specific purpose of delivering updates to web-based content.

Using this standard, webmasters provide headlines and fresh content in a succinct manner. Meanwhile, consumers use RSS readers and news aggregators to collect and monitor their favorite feeds in one centralized program or location.

So, let's explore the 10 news aggregators at hand. For each application we have compiled its own portal page, providing screenshots of the software in action, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, together with links to relevant resources and reviews. We give our highest recommendation to gReader, Pulse and my6sense, but all of the news aggregators below are worth investigating.

Pulse News in a grid with side-scrolling panels, headlines and thumbnails
