Apple News App

With Apple News, you can get all the stories you want to read in one app from various sources. It's a good way to reduce the number of apps on your smartphone. The app itself acts as a news aggregator. Unfortunately, the beautifully designed news app is only available on iOS devices.

Google News App

Likewise, Android's equivalent to Apple News is Google News. The application offers up-to-date news coverage, aggregated from sources all over the world by Google News.

Smart News App

Yes. There's an application called Smart News App. It is a news reader that pulls information from various sources and arranges them in categories such as sports, entertainment, and politics. You can swipe through each category to find the latest stories of your favorite topic.

Flipboard News Aggregator

Flipboard is another of the more popular news apps. You can create a custom news feed with your favorite news sources and sites. The Flipboard app includes animations, large images, and a modern user interface.

Yahoo Newsroom

Yahoo's Newsroom App offers news stories from around the world in almost every category imaginable. It is a trusted source of news and can also pull articles from other sources into their RSS reader.

CNN News App

While the above two apps are good choices for news aggregation from various news sources, you can always opt to use the app from your favorite news channel. For example, the CNN News App provides up to date information from CNN. Although, a certain individual will tell you that most of the news on the app is Fake News...
