How many of us remember the Newsstand App that Apple introduced a few years back? Not a lot of us I am sure and justifiably so, it was half-baked App that never felt right. Also as someone who keeps myself abreast of all Apple news (and news in general), I have almost fifty sources in my RSS reader (Feedly) and I use Pocket to read the articles I save for later. But both of these, while perfectly work the way promised, don't deliver the one stop Applesque solution to my news reading habits. You might wonder why I haven't mentioned Flipboard yet. That is because Flipboard is an App that I would love to use but have always found it hard to manage it both as a RSS feed manager and as just an article reader. The App is gorgeous (almost as if Apple designed it!) but not complete for my needs. So today I was excited when Apple announced its take on News or its Newsstand (hopefully) done right, called "News".
The App looks and feels almost exactly like Flipboard and has some apparently intelligent way of aggregating news articles tuned to the readers' news habits. It will be available along with iOS 9 release and content providers can work with Apple to add their news sites to the lineup.
