News Reader apps like Google Currents and Reader, Flipboard, Pulse News, and Taptu are the best ways to read news from the internet easily, quickly, and comfortably.
News reader apps work by downloading a website or blogs RSS News Feed to display on an app, or website like google.com/reader .
One of the main reasons that I use News Reader apps to read the news on my tablet is because they are easy to install, and set up my account and subscriptions. All I need to do is search Google Play for a news reader app like Flipboard, and install it. Next, I make an account to sync my subscriptions to other phones, and tablets which I own, so I don’t need to re-subscribe to everything again when I buy a new tablet.
Reading the news on a news reader app is quick because I just need to launch the news reader app, and it automatically checks for new posts, and downloads them, so I can read my subscriptions offline when I am not connected to the internet. It is also easy to change pages or articles by swiping my finger to the left or right to change the page or to a new article. Changing news subscriptions is easy. I just hit the back or menu button, and the App will bring me back to the main subscription page where I just tap on the subscription I want to read.
Most importantly, reading the news on apps like Flipboard, Pulse, and Google Reader or Currents is very comfortable on a smaller screen found on tablets and smartphones. The font size is larger, and you can easily adjust the size of the font with an onscreen button, or in the settings. Some news reader apps even let you change the font style from san serif and serif fonts. There are also dark themes for reading in low light conditions in some apps like Pulse, Taptu, Feedly, and more. With news reader apps, you just download the article title, article text, and images, and don’t download the websites sidebar, ads, flash animation, social networking share buttons like Facebook like, Twitter Tweet, and Stumbleupon buttons, so you can use almost the full screen space of your tablet or phone for reading instead of having website menu, the browser address bar, and other objects distract you from your reading.
A News Reader App is by far the best way to read a blog’s articles, and find current articles from a blog to read on a mobile phone or tablet compared to a mobile web browser which may not display the mobile version of the website, or the website is not mobile ready. Even mobile ready websites have poor support for offline content, and mobile navigation because very few mobile sites can switch to the next article with just a swipe of the finger to the left or right of the screen like apps like Google Reader for Android, Flipboard, or Pulse News.
News Reader Apps are here to stay because Flipboard and Pulse News both have over 10 million downloads on Google’s Play Marketplace, and Google Reader is one of the most popular services which is used by news hobbyist who enjoy reading news on a daily basis.
