Many know Flipboard, the app that was mostly pre-burn on many Samsung devices. Mostly known for its experience while flipping through the news articles, it has got a huge collection of Newspapers and RSS feeds. But is not that sufficient especially in the context of Indian readers, for they need content in local languages. May it’s time for the mobile manufactures to look at Indian Newspaper apps.
Of the news aggregating apps, I like Google Newsstand and NewsHunt. And to read from a newspaper perspective, NewsHunt is the best.
Best of the collections:
Overall the categories like Headlines has many top newspapers like Aajtak, The New Indian Express, Deccan Herald, Patrika, Headlines Today, Lokmat, Loksatta, Sandesh, News of Gujarat, GSTV, Daily Punjabi Times and more. I have just highlighted a few. There a lot more. Explore it on http://m.newshunt.com if you are on web. And on the apps on Android, iOS or Windows phones.
Covering a larger part of Indian readers, they support 12 languages: news in Hindi, Marathi, Urdu, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi, Bengali, Oriya, and 4 South Indian languages Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada news and English.
News has been classified under different categories like Headlines, Entertainment, Sports, Politics, Local News, Employment News, World News, Lifestyle etc. Almost all categories have about 10+ newspapers.
It’s good to see local news separately on NewsHunt. Of the 29 states in India, NewsuHunt has got local news from many north Indian states including Delhi, Punjab, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Haryana, Jharkhand etc.
Favorites and Recent Newspapers:
It is always a little confusing to get to the newspaper we wanted when there are hundreds of newspapers. NewsHunt resolved it by adding The Favorites feature. Mark any newspaper you would like as Favorite and it is added as a shortcut on your home screen.
Read it on a Newspaper:
We are all used to read news on the “One” newspaper we like. After all who would like to buy more than one newspaper at our homes? Click on any one newspaper and you can read all the categories like Breaking News, National, International, Sports, Business, and even the weekly supplementary.
All for Free:
All that stated above is available for FREE. What else you would need. Download it and enjoy it.
