How does it work?
The main screen allows you to choose from the Latest News (news from multiple sites) or allows you to focus in on your favorite tech sites. If you tap LATEST NEWS you see a brief paragraph about each article and you only need to tap on one to read more. If you choose one of the sources you see a slightly different format. There is one main article and then additional articles to scan through at the bottom.
It is really not any more complicated than choosing your source and reading. It is well designed and easy to use. You’ll find yourself surfing this app for hours reading new and interesting articles.
