Read online or save stories and read them later offline

The New York Times

The New York Times

The New York Times Company

For news hounds that want the real story.

The New York Times is widely considered one of the most prestigious names in news, which makes its iPhone app a must-have. Non-subscribers are limited to viewing “top news,” but that covers a wide range and the rest of the app’s functionality, including push notifications, is intact. Articles are well-formatted and load quickly, but the use of an animated banner ad in the bottom of the screen (even for subscribers and occasionally in full screen mode) detracts from the reading experience.

Why we love it

In a world full of fake news, it's good to know some places still value journalistic ethics. Not every story is correct, but they've all been vetted by trained journalists and top-tier editorial teams. If you want the real story, the NYT is one of the best.

Feed Hawk

Feed Hawk

Golden Hill Software

Feed Hawk makes it easy to subscribe to the RSS feed of the website you are visiting. From within Safari, simply open a share sheet and tap Feed Hawk. Feed Hawk will find the feed for the site and subscribe to it. If the site has multiple feeds, Feed Hawk will allow you to specify the feeds to which you wish to subscribe.

The Feed Hawk extension works inside most browsers including Safari, Safari View Controllers, Google Chrome, and Marcato.

“Sometimes a simple, single-purpose utility makes all the difference. Feed Hawk by John Brayton of Golden Hill Software is exactly that type of app.”
–John Voorhees, MacStories

“I like iOS apps that patch a hole in my workflow, and Feed Hawk fits that bill.”
–Stephen Hackett, 512 Pixels

“Are you still using RSS? If you are (and you should be, as we’ll see in a moment), then you should use the Feed Hawk app on your iPhone and iPad.”
–Charlie Sorrel, Cult of Mac

Feed Hawk works with the following feed services:
* BazQux Reader
* Feed Wrangler
* Feedbin
* FeedHQ
* Fever (self-hosted): Requires an HTTPS server with a valid certificate and Fever-Feed Hawk Adapter. Fever-Feed Hawk Adapter is available at: https://www.goldenhillsoftware.com/feed-hawk/fever-feed-hawk-adapter/

Aggregators - All You Need in One Place

Need to stay informed but don't have a lot of time to look at all your news apps? Aggregators bring the news to you in a single app.

Flipboard: News for our time

Your news interests done your way

Flipboard: News for our time

Flip through your news

For those who like a customized news feed.

Flipboard deserves its spot as one of the best known news and content aggregation apps on the iOS platform. The app is beautifully designed, optimized for iPhone use, can be connected to most social media accounts, and now even supports podcasts and music via an in-app player. Flipboard’s true power lies in its content catalog, which includes many of the biggest names in blogs and news, any website with an RSS feed or Twitter account, and, most importantly, content chosen by Flipboard staff and other interesting personalities. These curated topics are similar to sections in a newspaper, but they combine information from many different sources— it is essentially a folder in an RSS reader, only you don’t have to create it. More, Flipboard continually updates its catalog and creates new curated topics for timely events; for example, in March, I used Flipboard’s NCAA March Madness section to help fill out my bracket. The app is very responsive, but lacks a list or headline-only view, which is likely to disappoint those who want a quick overview of current news. Although there is room for improvement (e.g., the ability to add more sources to your flipboard), Flipboard is still a top option for news reading on the iPhone.

Why we love it

Flipboard offers a super nice, customizable interface. View categories in a tiled layout, search by keyword, follow friends, and receive shared stories from other users. Flipboard is perfect when you want to get serious about tailoring your news interests.

Quartz

Get news in a whole new way with Quartz where it feels more like a conversation.

Quartz

Jump right in

Quartz is truly a unique way to get your news. With fun GIFs and attractive photos, it really does feel like a text conversation with your friend. When it is time to get serious, you can read the full story with a simple tap. The customized notifications are great, the Apple Watch support is a definite plus, and overall it is just a light and pleasant way to check out the news each day.

Why we love it

Quartz makes consuming news a fun conversation. Instead of being tasked to read an entire story you get the headlines. Want more info and you'll get it. Want less info you can just move on to the next story.

Technology News

Keeping track of the technology world is much easier with these great apps.

AppAdvice

AppAdvice

AppAdvice.com

Is this shameless? Yes. Is it true? Also yes. The AppAdvice app is by far the best place to go to find app news and advice. Although it is heavy on the application side, the site does still post more then its fair share of Apple-related headline news. In terms of app usability, its UI really shines through. They didn't just shove out a glorified reader for the iPhone (note some of the apps here), it really is another experience consuming AppAdvice on your mobile device rather then your desktop. Especially with its price drops, app movers and app updates links. Hey, I work for them and could get it for free, but I even paid for it. It's that good. Ok, now onto the non-affiliated apps!

CNET's Tech Today

CNET's Tech Today

CBS Interactive

Tech Today delivers the most important tech news, stories and opinions, all in one easy daily dose. Whenever you have a couple minutes, the app has CNET's 10 biggest stories of the day waiting for you.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the news apps out there — we get it. That’s why we built Tech Today, the simplest and fastest, free-est way to get a quick look at what's big right now in tech news, without any complications or stories about the Kardashians (well, usually). Tech Today gives you a look at the "big picture" in tech by delivering a selection of best stories based on the most popular topics right now.

Tech Today is perfect for your commute (but please, not while driving!) or while in line at your favorite coffee shop.
