6 Top Free Android News Library Apps

6 Top Free Android News Library Apps

News library apps offer the benefit of making reading the latest news, magazines, and blogs in a simple and intuitive way. Browsing the web on an Android device can be a frustrating experience. Stripped down mobile websites offer an incomplete solution. Standard websites often require constant zooming in and out to read the content especially on devices with low screen resolutions. This can make keeping on top of the latest world and social news more difficult than it needs to be.

A good solution is to use dedicated readers which present the news in a friendlier way. The purpose of this article is to identify quality news library apps for the Android platform. They offer a different and often elegant way to digest news both with and without an internet connection.

One of the particular strengths of the best news library apps is to integrate social news and world news in a single app.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 6 news library apps. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for anyone interested in keeping up with world and social news.

Now, let's explore the 6 news library apps at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots of the software in action, together with links to relevant resources and reviews. Each tool has been allocated a rating out of 10.

We are particularly fond of Flipboard and Google Currents, but all of the software featured in this article is worth downloading.

News Library Apps
Flipboard Social-network aggregation, magazine-format application
Google Currents Favourite publications, tuned for your tablet and smartphone
Pulse News in a grid with side-scrolling panels, headlines and thumbnails
