VentureBeat: “…A deeper news reading experience than most competitors, in particular because I was able to easily combine news sources…the app also does a great job of recommending stories.”
Brothersoft: “Again, Taptu has taken advantage of the fact that it is a veteran in the field of mobile search. It is in the search aspects that it is able to dominate rival Flipboard”

Excellent app. Allows me to keep up with the daily Tech News. Love how I can merge streams. Gave up Pulse, HTC EVO 4G.

This app is mean. Truly a one stop shop. Everything in one place. Rip Pulse.

Fantastic app to get everything in one serving. I use it several times a day to keep up to date with multiple news, tech and social sites. This rocks!

Very good, only thing is that I get an error if I want to sign in Facebook via VPN.

I only installed it hours ago and its already my favorite app. Only problem is now I have to uninstall all the now useless news apps I have.

Excellent (news) reader. Just what i needed! Don't disable ads in order to show your support for the devs. ;)

It's taking forever to load news and sources on Galaxy S2 with wi-fi. I can't use it. Looks good though. Switching back to Pulse.

Very convenient and addiction inducing. Use it for timepass rage comics, serious deal hunting and of course, news reading.

Nice presentation and wealth of sources. But some news stories appear in many feeds and some feeds are not refreshed so often.

Taptu allowed me to uninstall twitter and Google reader. Better battery life, and seriously best news interface ever. Dev responds to emails too!
