The fantastic iOS 8 Notification Center widget Breaking has just made a big move with an update to version 1.4.
Instead of improving the widget, the latest version vastly improves the app itself with the new Stories view. From the tab inside the app, you can view all of the stories from the different news feeds that you’ve added. Users can also open a story, dismiss it, share it, or save it for later reading.
That’s a handy addition, and it makes the app a great place to look when you’re interested in more than just scanning recent headlines in the widget.
Along with the Stories tab, the Recent view now will also show images from stories.
And Apple Watch users can even use the app on the new wearable device. Here’s an interactive preview of the app courtesy of our sister site WatchAware.
So far in 2015, Breaking has been one of my most-used apps. I’m really pleased to see it get better with each new update. It’s a must-have for any news junkie.
