This app is pretty nice. You get 2 news digests a day. You don’t have the ability to tell it what stories to serve you but it is a nice way to stay on top of big stories. You can quickly skim headlines then tapping on a story takes you to a summary and links to relevant tweets and videos and other reference.
Recommended for news junkies.
