Welcome to the seventh post in the September Is A Weird Month Blog Series. Are you enjoying this series? We hope you are because we are having a blast writing it for you!
This may not seem weird to some of you, but my new obsession is very weird to me. Are you ready for it?.....It's the NEWS....well.... news mobile apps to be more specific. You will never find me watching the news EVER because THE NEWS ONLY BRINGS THE BLUES, but mobile news apps are awesome, and i can't get enough of them. I use Apple, and Android devices so i had to do some research for my favorite news apps. In their 9.0 update Apple has added a news app.
The reason i am obsessed with news apps is because i can choose what i want to read about, and just keep scrolling. There are almost infinite news articles that i can scroll through on tons of different topics. I feel that watching the news there is way too many biased opinions, and i am just not interested in that. On a news app you can select what topics you want to read about, and from what sources you want to read from, and continuously scroll encountering new stories that you may not have seen if you were watching the news. Since Apple now has a built in news app i don't have to waste more room or GB on my iPad Mini which is awesome. However, i have an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S3 to be exact), and i needed to look for a mobile news Android app. The best app that i have come across for browsing news on Android (and Apple) is Flipboard.
Flipboard is my favorite Android app because it is news, and social media in one., and you can make it a widget! Flipboard is definitely more interactive than the Apple News App in that you can add friends, and connect your social media accounts to see recent social media posts. By hitting the + signs you can create your own magazines of articles to save, and share (think Pinterest of news!) You can also share individual articles that you find interesting. I also love Flipboard because it is literally like flipping through a magazine in that when you swipe up, it flips a page!!!
