    I use the BBC News App which is free as well as The Guardian (UK Newspaper) it's a free App too but after an introductory period the daily newspaper costs a small sum. Most newspapers have good Apps that enable you to read the printed issue online.

    I guess, I should have been a bit more clear in my question--I was thinking more along the lines of news aggregators versus apps for specific news sources. I'm trying to understand what types of news apps interest individuals, generally.

    As a full disclosure, I do work for News360.

    Pulse, Zite and Flipboard are some popular news-aggregating apps.

    I prefer to use specific websites over aggregators, but I check out the aggregators, too. For tech news, I like all sorts of sites, including ones that link or cross post from other sites. On the whole, I prefer news websites to apps, which often aren't as robust when it comes to content.

    The 3 you mentioned tend to be popular ones that are usually the response. News360 is planning on doing some beta testing that I was going to start a thread for later. Kaykaykay and others interested, I would love to have you guys join the beta testing group.
