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.
Welcome to our biggest update to Circa News *by far*. We've been super hard at work on it for quite a while and are excited to release it to you! If you have any thoughts, suggestions, or questions feel free to get ahold of us at email@example.com ! Now, on to the good stuff! Introducing Wire
• We're so stoked about this feature. Wire is a new area of the app that consists of two things: a personalized Daily Brief from our editorial staff, and updates to stories that you may already be following.
• Now we make your followed updates super easy to read quickly by putting everything you haven't seen yet into a single fast-reading page.
Dynamic Daily Brief
• The President of the United States doesn’t need to read the news, he’s briefed on only the things that demand his attention. We figured why shouldn't everyone have that? Our editors will carefully curate the most meaningful stories of the day so you can have a Daily Brief delivered at a time that you choose!
• By far the most requested feature since we launched nearly two years ago and it's finally here! Search for stories that matter to you and give them a follow.
• You can now customize your main screen and Wire to only see the things you care most about – turn on or off any topic you'd like!
Filter Breaking News Alerts
• Don't want to see a sports-related breaking news alert? Just turn it off! We've made it really easy for you to tell us what news you want alerts about.
Android Wear Support
• Get Breaking News notifications and story updates delivered directly to your Android Wear device!
• We've teamed up again with Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer BT (https://twitter.com/bt), to produce a high quality suite of sounds that would fit perfectly with our new experience.
The latest Tweets from BT (@BT). Grammy Nominated Composer & Technologist. I am a man that believes sound can change the world. I seek, I learn. Bookings: firstname.lastname@example.org. On a shining blue dot
