AH Awards 2015 _ Best Android Android News and Magazine App

AH Awards 2014 – Best Android News and Magazine App of the Year

December 8, 2014 - Written By Tom Dawson

If there’s one thing that’s changed as a result of smartphones and tablets, it’s how we read the news and the magazine industry has changed a lot as a result. We can now read news from thousands and thousands of sources from all over the web through one app, we’re just moments away from watching video reports of breaking stories and magazines have never been more accessible. So, which app is the best News and Magazine App on Android?

Winner: Flipboard

Flipboard continues to show us how it’s done when it comes to news apps. While there are other apps that might be more powerful, none of them have the sort of experience of Flipboard. If you’re looking for a news reading experience that has a lot to offer you, and evolves with you, while still offering an experience close to reading a newspaper or magazine, then Flipboard is the one for you. With Flipboard, you can tailor your experience to the sort of news and articles that you want to read, rather than having to read what’s given to you. It’s a great overall experience and it received a fresh coat of paint earlier this year as well. It might feature ads now, that not everybody is happy with, but if you want the best experience when reading news that matters to you, then this is the best option.

Runner Up: Zinio

If you’re more interested in singular issues of your favorite publication, but have waged war on paper, then Zinio is a great option. It features great deals on subscriptions and unlike the fairly basic editions offered by Google Play, Zinio editions are often better quality and have more features embedded into the titles. A definite must for those seriously into periodicals, Zinio shows Google how it’s really done – and it works on that iPad you don’t have, too.
