    Reviewed in Anything awesome

    The best and most widespread news app for the UK. Easy and clear I terrace displaying the top stories for the categories that you can customise. Some stories have video as well which can be view using the BBC media player app. Displays mainly political and real-world news instead of Android or tech news specifically but really good for keeping up with things.
