by Endgrate Team 2023-07-13

Businesspeople often rush around their fast-paced worlds, constantly in pursuit of the latest news to stay ahead of the game. It's essential to have a news app that can keep up with their dynamic lives and deliver the information they need, the way they need it. Here, we've compiled the five best news apps of 2023, each offering unique features that make them perfect for any business professional.

  1. inkl

  2. Google News

  3. Flipboard

  4. Ground News

  5. NewsBreak

We pick these five after considering factors such as personal feed quality, content interaction possibilities, organizational structure, search and filter capabilities, and customization options.

Here are our thoughts on each pick:

  1. inkl: sets itself apart by focusing on what's newsworthy rather than what's trending. Priced at $9.99/month, inkl boasts a classy interface that mirrors a well-curated newspaper, focusing on high-quality journalism. Its stories are carefully chosen by human experts, offering reliable and relevant content. While it's the priciest on our list, the cost seems justified for the ad-free, pleasing, and focused news experience it provides.

  2. Google News: our choice for the best free app, offers a broad spectrum of news access. It comes with 'Full Coverage' panels for major stories, providing different perspectives, tweets, and related videos. The news platform leverages past search activity on Google and YouTube to recommend content, creating a seamless and personalized experience.

  3. Flipboard: stands out for its "design-your-own-news-experience" approach. It lets you curate your digital magazine, combining stories from various sources, blogs, and other sites. The innovative "flipping" interface mimics the feeling of reading a real magazine. Flipboard even allows you to share your curated magazines, making it ideal for team-based news sharing at work.

  4. Ground News: goes the extra mile in providing a variety of perspectives. Despite a rather basic interface, it offers unique features such as 'Across the Spectrum' and 'Factuality', which highlight news from left-aligned, right-aligned, and central sources. At $0.99/month (Pro) or $3.99/month (Premium), it provides an enlightening look at the biases in your news.

  5. NewsBreak: is a standout for its social media-like approach to news. Its tabbed interface hosts a variety of topics, and each article is visually appealing with an image and title. The app has a lively comment section and lets you block specific topics, ensuring a tailored news feed.

All of these apps were tested to offer the most comprehensive, user-friendly, and practical news experience for the busy business professional. With one of these apps in hand, navigating the avalanche of daily news becomes an easier and more productive task.
