    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.

    Breaking News is my new favourite. Updates all the time. Wish the others could do that.

    Flipboard has the best interface by far. If I remember correctly from my Android tablet days News360 could give it a run for its money.

    Flipboard. The best, hands down.

    My favourite is the Pulse app. I like to be able to browse through multiple sites from one app.
