Reviewed in Best Social Apps for Everyone
With Banjo one can be social even when reading news. Unlike other social readers, that just let you share articles, opinions etc. Banjo pulls actual photos of the people on-site of big stuff happening around the world. The app let's you choose - read the actual news article or simply follow the news by getting a feed from people taking pictures and commenting at the time of the news! Very nice, graphical, design. Not very customizable though, unlike its' counterparts.
Ranquin: Banjo is quite cool. It should take news and events from places where your friends live. Don't know if it works because I see news from where I think I have no contacts but it's cool to watch pictures from car shows and read news about disasters and shootings.
