#5 Google Play Newsstand
Firstly, we would like to clarify that ‘Google Play Newsstand’ is different from ‘Google News & Weather’ application. Both of these apps serve the different purpose.
‘Google News & Weather’ application provide you only weather information and news from various sources and you can only choose the topics which you want to read. While, Newsstand allows you to subscribe free as well as paid specific publishers/ websites/ blogs and magazines. Also, ‘Google News & Weather’ provide only headlines and opens the full story in the browser while Newsstand shows the full stories with a tap on the headline within the app without browser support.
So, Newsstand is fast and have better user experience than ‘Google News & Weather’. Why Google is running ‘Google News & Weather’ along with Newsstand, that only Google Team can answer.
Well, our recommendation is to go with Google Play Newsstand. Also, feel free to give a try to ‘Google News & Weather’.
Price: Free (Payment required for Premium magazines subscription)
#6 Yahoo Newsroom
Yahoo Newsroom too aggregates news from a lots of news publishers. Newsroom lets you stay on the top of the trend with a series of trending topics in its ‘Explore’ section dubbed as ‘Vibes’.
In case you are not able to find your vibe, you can create one! You can post articles from around the web in a particular vibe and can start your own discussions. We think that’s a negative point as it will increase the chances of fake and low-quality news. But considering all other things, Yahoo Newsroom is a good option to get your news delivered.
Similar to other apps, Newsroom allows you to select the topics and get customized feed. Among all other features and apart from news content, what we liked the most about Yahoo Newsroom is its interface and user experience which is quite great in comparison to other apps. You should give it a try after downloading the app and let us know what you think about it?
#7 MSN News
MSN is the Microsoft news aggregator application. Articles in MSN are curated by Microsoft News expert. So, quality of articles is assured in MSN which is a positive point. MSN allows you to customize your feed by following topics you care about. MSN has global edition and you can choose your country to get the country specific edition of MSN news.
