Best News Apps For Indian Users
This is the official app of Times Of India Newspaper from Times Group. Apart from news articles, the app also provides access to a live streaming of the network’s TV news channels namely- Times Now, ET Now and Zoom. The app is neat and all the news is shown in a well categorized structure as Top News, Brief, Latest and Trending. You can set your preferences in terms of topics or cities and see the relevant news pieces.
You may complain about non responsiveness of web pages from some of the publications but otherwise the experience is pretty smooth.
This news app has catered using one single touch point and that is users are not always interested in watching the detailed news and headlines is often insufficient. They say news in less than 60 words.
There are small pieces about news. The detailed news is credited to the original publication but it shortened by in-house editors. Another interesting thing about this app is that unlike other news app, this doesn’t have a stream like layout.
It has news as flash cards where user can dismiss a card by scrolling up and next news piece will be displayed. It is clutter free and this is difficult to achieve in an app which caters to something very elaborate like News.
These Android apps are the ones we think are best suited to information needs of an Indian reader. Do let us know which one is your favorite.
