Get your news in a few different ways

google-news-pixel-4-2020.jpg

The list of good news apps can go on and on for days, as there are many different ways to consume “news” nowadays. This is a good problem to have as you can find the best news app to consume information in a way that you enjoy.

Google News has been around for quite some time, but it was left untouched for far too long. Then, Google decided to give it a much-needed and much-deserved facelift, and it has become the de-facto news app for many. This is largely in part to the curation provided and the personalization options that are built right in.

On the other hand, Inoreader, is for the more “power users” who are looking for more from their news app. You can customize your newsfeed to show exactly what you want, and there are plenty of integrations to save content for later with the help of Evernote, Dropbox, and more.
