What differentiates Tech Junkie from other tech news apps is that you only have to read the news once, instead of going through it again and again from different sites. For example if the same news appears at Engadget, Gizmodo, TechCrunch and The Verge, Tech Junkie displays prominently only the first site that was to report that news, groups the rest of the sites into a collection and hides it from the main view. Alternate sources of the same news are hidden within the main news item and can be accessed by clicking the "More" button. Similarly, tweets that are relevant to the news can be accessed with the "Tweets" button. And when one or more news items are related, they are properly grouped like on the Techmeme website. Author names (when available) are also properly mentioned just above the story title (like Ian Sherr / Wall Street Journal, John Roberts / New York Times, John Paczkowski / AllThingsD), so that you can easily identify your favorite author's works.
Download Tech Junkie today and have your daily dose of relevant technology news, without reading the same story....twice.
