- Best app for news/journalism in my opinion. The interface is a lot cleaner and quicker if you just want curated news, and Google can pull from every media source known to man when you're looking for the latest news on a specific topic. So it covers every use case/scenario.Love the "View All Coverage" button so you can see coverage from several news outlets. Lately it's been my go-to over Apple News.
Curious if this is another example of group think... If it's looking at what my friends do and what I typically do then it'll reinforce that behaviour and I won't learn anything new or have a chance to thin outside of my own sphere of influence. So that's what I question about these types of things - even though I like them (because I'm designed to)
The UX is just a joy to use. I've been using this for a week now, and it's gotten me back into reading the news every day. My news consumption went from 0 to checking 2-5x/day.
As I'm already hitting the reading limit for my favorite sources in 1 week, I can see myself actually paying for NYT.
A few features that I adore:
• Headlines shows you the top current headlines
• You can swipe between different sources and see quotes from them
• A US-based news app that let's you view World news easily?! 👏🏼
• For You shows you stories that the algorithm thinks you'll like
• Supports the publisher's reading cap rules (ex. NYT's 5 free articles)
I have been part of the beta and I love Sip! The short news stories just take a few minutes to read and I'm up to speed. I love how the app works and Sip is an app I'll keep on my iPhone.
I have been using Sip for a while now, but never received any notifications - that's probably because it's being officially launched only today. Let's see how this goes!
- I use the Quartz app for Android (alongside Google News, Sip by Product Hunt and Refind for Facebook Messenger). The Quartz app is a more contemporary way to receive news that I am interested in. I really like that Quartz is designed for mobile devices and love the modern conversation style approach and that it allows me to choose if I want to find out more about a particular article or skip to the next item. https://play.google.com/store/ap...
- My newspaper :) You don't need (aggregators)/journalism apps if you have Inshorts. Highly recommended to try this if you are in India.
I've used Boost for Reddit for a long time wishing for an Official Reddit app. I was excited when it was first released and used it for a little bit and started to notice some thumbnails didn't load properly and very limited.
- Love their short explanations and the links in case you want to know more about a certain topic. It's not curated, but they provide a good spread of the top stories.
- Every important news headline, media content (gif / blog post / YouTube video) trending at that moment can be accessed in a single page format. It is biased towards American publications but has decent coverage of news / trending content from all over the world. Its just $3.50 / month to access business section (which is very useful if you're into business / finance and investing). If you're someone like me you accesses news with top-down approach (skim all headlines and then filter out ones to read in depth) you will definitely love it. Hvper is also independently developed and stewarded by just one person - Thomas Marban (I am biased towards indie web products). It is the only media product / publication that I have subscribed.
- this newsletter brought me back the joy of reading newsletters lol. now i have subscribed to many newsletters that they started being annoying again... anyways, it gives you a distilled version of what's going on (or went on the previous day). it is quite US-centric. someone please recommends/makes a newsletter that covers more of the world.
