Smack my ass and call me Judy! I just found out "circa" means "approximately"; I always thought it was a fancy way to say "in". Well. Live and learn. Irrelevance aside, Circa News is yet another pretty way to get your daily news fix, if you haven't found your favourite yet.

This news app could just have filled the void in me, which was left after the uninstallation of Flipboard.I could never find another visually satisfying news app,until now. I have to write it down as pros and cons.. Pros: - great design -the news aren't continuous articles,instead they follow a card layout which comprises of headlines, quotations or just a brief summary of the news. That's really fresh. -you can follow articles and if something new related stuff comes up,you will be notified. Cons: -lack of channels.and that's the reason why it can't replace Taptu for me now.There are just 5 default channels. -its mostly America centric.It has 2 channels viz. United states and US politics,which I really have minimum need for.The other 3 channels are World,Technology and Science and Health. Its a new app,but if it just updates with the ability to add channels, its really going to kill a lot of other apps.
