Apps We Love: NewzSocial

Written by mcarberry. Posted in Apps We Love

There’s a new news app that we’re really freaking out about right now. Yes, we’ve been long-time fans of Flipboard, Prizmatic, and Google Currents. We’ve even reviewed Pocket before here on the blog, but last week NewzSocial was launched, and we REALLY like it.

So what’s the big deal? It’s just another news app, right? Well, sort of. It’s definitely a news app, and we could go on about how clean and beautiful it looks on the iPad, but it’s the structure that really separates this app from all the others. Typically with other news apps, you pick which news sources you’d like to get your news from like CNN, or Google, etc. However, NewzSocial is an app that allows its users to socially curate news based on type of news such as ‘Healthy Eating,’ ‘Tech,’ or ‘Election 2012.’ Additionally, you can share the articles you like with your friends or across a channel to add depth and texture to your followers’ experience.

NewzSocial is COMPLETELY customizable based on the news YOU want to read, and it’s all share-able. The collaborative features, and the core ability to curate your own news essentially makes you an editor of your own news channel. We said we would skip the aesthetics, but we simply can’t. Like we said before it looks great, and the channels show up in stacks that expand into an immersive viewing experience. There are several pre-bundled news channels for you to try out, but making your own is just way too fun. The NewzSocial app was released September 19, 2012 for the iPad. Go grab it today!
