For news readers, it is mandatory to read fresh news in the morning. Instead of browsing multiple media websites, they look for a single-window platform to consume news stories. In its recent March event, Apple announced its News+ services. However, after one-month usage of Apple’s News Plus, I find it cluttered and chaotic. A better option is News360, which helps you personalize your news.
With its neat and clean interface, News360 is one of the best news apps for modern news readers. You can follow your choice of news every day. This news app allows you to choose your categories and the app will deliver news stories according to your selection.
News360: One-Stop App for Reading and Saving News Stories on iOS Devices
The very first thing that impresses me is the selection of interests. There are tons of topics categorized by the app, and you will get tired of exploring them all. You name it, and News360 will cater to your requirement immediately. Apart from its impressive selection, the app has other exciting features for users.
Select Your Favorite Category
One of the glaring features of this app is it allows users to select different categories without signing up. You can sign up later or you can continue using this app without providing your email or phone number.
For personalization, you can select topics, sources, companies, and people you wish to follow. Leave the rest on News360 as the app will chase your interests as you begin to read news stories every day.
You can start by adding a few of your interests; later, you can add more interests to this app to personalize news feed.
Welcome screen of this intuitive app quickly reminds me of the Spotify music app, which also lets me select my music interests in the very beginning.
For your reading, News360 sources news stories from more than 100,000 national and international websites and blogs. The app ensures you get your choice of news from every nook and corner of the world.
Listen to News Stories
Yes, you hear that right! You can listen to your favorite stories on your iOS device. For this, you need to subscribe to News360 as this feature is available only for paid users. The Audio Briefing facility gives you access to audible news items while you are driving or in the middle of something. Once you go for the premium version of this app, it will remove ads from your news feed as you are now a subscriber of News360 Premium.
Want to read the news in flight or like to save them to read later? You can save news items in the app by tapping on the Bookmark icon at the bottom right corner.
If you want to access your saved stories later, tap on the menu button and select Saved option. Now, you will see all of your favorite articles that you had decided to catch up later at your own pace.
iPhone and iPad users have been waiting for a dedicated dark mode for iOS, but not sure when they’ll get it. But New360 team have heard the voice and introduced Dark Mode for their app. A simple toggle switch will activate the dark mode that makes reading news and stories at night less painful to your eyes.
Not just at night, I personally find dark mode comforting at any time of the day compared to the bright or light mode. This may not be a decisive feature for few, but for many people who love to read while lying in their bed, it is surely attractive.
Text only Mode
The feed of the News360 app by default load news along with feature images of that post. For a news-hungry soul, it is just the text and content that matters. News360 respects avid readers and thus, the app has an option to have just text on the feed. This helps in a couple of ways. First, you get more content on the screen to search, and secondly, saves a lot of data because no images are loaded.
IMPORTANT: This feature may or may not work if you are a non-premium subscriber of this app. I had noticed that my saved stories disappeared when I killed all the apps on my iPhone. When I went back to the Saved folder, my saved stories were not there. A better way is to keep your favorite news stories in your Notes app on the iPhone or iPad.
That’s all folks!
An advantage or a disadvantage of this app is selecting an edition. Even if you choose the international version of this app, you are supposed to make payment in your currency. This is an advantage, but you never get to know the price of this app in other countries. All in all, this is a go-to app for every news-hungry person on this earth.
