Read all about it! If there’s one genre of app that continues to be massively popular in the Google Play Store, it is the humble news app. If you want to stay up to date with the latest news- whether it be national, international, technology, topical, sports or even celebrity gossip(!) there are dozens of apps out there to help you do so on your mobile Android device.

We thought it would be a rather cracking idea to round some of the better news apps for your perusal. This has been split up into 5 sections: Titles, this includes newspapers, TV stations and specialist news sources. Then there’s a section on dedicated Technology and Science news apps. Sports news is very important to a wide range of people so there’s a small section for apps that specialise in top sports news apps. There is also a section especially for news aggregators; hugely popular in the Google Play Store these are usually highly customisable apps that collate your favourite sources into one handy and readable format. Finally, if you have a sense of humour, I’m sure you’ll appreciate our small section on humour and news parody apps.

Read on then for a bumper collection of brilliant news apps, ready for you to download…

I recently wrote a glowing review of Zinio, an app that allows you to buy, subscribe to, and read magazines. I think that the fine folks at Zinio did a really, really great job on the app, but I’m not quite sold on the notion of digital magazines.

While I’m fully behind e-books (my Kindle is awesome), don’t buy CDs any more, and pick up DVD/Blu-Ray discs sparingly, there is something different about owning an actual magazine.
