What is the best app for getting recommended news on specific topics?

I'm looking for an Android app that brings me news it thinks I'll like. I want to move on from RSS, because I think it's too hard to keep up with. I want to be able to select topics I want to receive news from and I'd love for the app to have a great looking interface!

      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've been using it for a couple of weeks and so far it has replaced all my news sources.

      KilkonieI make thing that don't suck.

      I used it to keep track of company acquisitions as well as topics like game cheats, mushroom farming and product recalls. Then I expanded my interest lists include things like "charcuterie" and "michelin star restaurants in sf". Everything works really well.

      The team has a crawler or indexer that doing realtime search and seems to be tracking social media as well. My interests are persistent and I can follow anything. I think was one of the top products Twitter was musing about building in 2017, but didn't.

    • The app has very promising potential, looking forward to watching it develop and find some stability with a solid use-case that makes me want to open it daily

    You can create specific filters by keyword as well as filter the news by different genres. I'd imagine it also "knows" what news would interest you based on the amount of data Google has on you ;)

    An RSS news reader that prioritises topics you care about 💻

    It's still an RSS reader, but it makes it easier to keep up with the news by prioritizing topics you like. You can also tell it to always show you everything that's published on favorite blogs. It's not an Android app, but rather it's a web app that works ok in a mobile browser.

    New Snapchat

    The new Snapchat, redesigned to separate social from media

    The Media part of New Snapchat is increasingly becoming my go-to destination for curated news that is specific and focused. The channel that I have been watching the most is SportsCenter. They post everyday at 5 AM and 5 PM, and give me the best updates on everything sports. I am still exploring other channels, but I think the quality of these channels will only increase over time.

      This just another pivot and pitch to investors and to keep the evaluation higher. Don't forget if there's a free product in the market meaning that the users are the product themselves. Get more insight into people lives, no privacy whatsoever and selling back the data to the giants (Google)
