News Discovery Apps
LinkedIn bought Pulse for $90 million last year. Facebook recently unveiled its newsreader app "Paper." Yahoo has a stake with its news digest app. Google has Newsstand. Net-net: News is mobile, the ads will follow.
One of our favorite news readers gets even better.
The new version of Appy Geek features larger images and is ideally formatted for large screen devices, specifically tablets. Windows 8, iPad and Android tablets are supported.
With 3.0, the reading experience is now optimized for all three tablet platforms -- iPad, Android, Windows 8. More than 10,000 full-length articles are made available each day from sources such as HuffPo, TechCrunch, AP, and, yes, Stark Insider too.
We recommend the iPad version (4.5 out of 5 stars) of Next Issue. Not only will you get a larger selection of magazines, you'll also get faster downloads and smoother overall performance.
With all of the hardware announcements this month -- Kindle HD, Nokia Lumia 920, HTC Windows Phone 8S and 8X, Apple iPhone 5 -- it's great to see some news on the content front.
