"I love this app so much, since you know, I designed it." -Anna C.
The News App is not just another reader app. It's a news *browser*, with a simple philosophy: open, read.
By being a browser and native app, The News blends the best of both worlds. Enjoy native app speed and styled reader views, while also enjoying the mobile web in all its HTML5 glory.
The News is also great tablet app! So fire up those tablets and enjoy one of the most polished Android news browsers (perhaps, the only?) around.
* Scrollable home screen widget!
* Android beam support! That's right folks- don't just show your friends the news: beam it to them baby!
* Reader mode! That site you're on doesn't have a mobile-friendly version? Well 2004 called, and they want their lack of mobile support back. But have no fear, we've got you covered! Just press the Reader button, and you'll get a beautifully styled reading friendly view.
* Actual, real, honest tablet support. We didn't just stretch this bad boy and call it "tablet friendly". Who in their right mind would do that? everyonelese ... We designed this from the ground up for a specific tablet reading experience. With good ol' fragments and all. Portrait and landscape. Boom.
* Bezel Swipe! DID YOU HEAR THAT??? I mean, aside from Chrome for Android, who else has that? Oh, I dunno, WE DO. Yes, the rumours are true. The News for Android supports bezel swiping. Please, no autographs now.
* Social Reading! What does that mean? It means that if you so choose, you may share what you are reading with your friends, and in return, see what they are reading as well. Who knew your best bud Sam is an origami aficionado? Well, now you know.
