If you’re a news junkie, you’re certainly spoilt for choice these days. Many heavyweight media houses and publication platforms worldwide have easily-accessible news on their apps. But your favorite news providers could bombard you with hundreds of push notifications, leaving you feeling a little overwhelmed from information overload and near-constant news updates.
We’ll set you up to stay sane while staying informed on local and global news by helping you choose the best app for breaking news alerts.
Access premium content without the subscription fees.
Looking for the top stories from a multitude of trusted sources has never been easier. Sure, you can download every news app out there and be notified of everything that happens under the sun, but a news aggregator curates the top stories that interest you from various trusted sources.
What you’ll get is an intelligent, personalized news feed at the intervals you select and implement. News aggregator apps typically use application programming interfaces (APIs) to pull in headlines, summaries and often, full articles, from different sources based on the particular interests of the news reader. It basically puts you in the driver’s seat for choosing the content you want to see, when you want to see it.
Daily news can be presented in various formats catering to all types of news readers
Do your eyes glaze over at the sight of endless walls of text? News aggregators now have various visually appealing and accommodating story formats. These include punchy lists, colorful grids and cards. This livens things up a bit, and keeps you engaged and curious for more.
No time, or wifi to read the news now? No problem. Features like bookmarking, offline reading, sharing and breaking news alerts, are often built into these apps.
If you have time though, live streaming of a breaking news story is also possible.
Yep, there are some cool ones out there. The most popular breaking news aggregator apps include Apple News, Feedly, SmartNews, Flipboard and Google News. These apps curate breaking local and global news from a variety of publishers, presenting them in a user-friendly format, allowing users to stay informed about what interests them.
Great question and the good news is that there are many ways to stay informed. We’ve touched on news aggregator platforms, but we like to share the love (and news) here at Invisibly. Here are some other options:
News publisher apps:
Most major news outlets have their own mobile apps that provide push notifications for breaking news stories. Install the apps of your preferred news sources, enable notifications, and voila!
Invisibly, for instance, lets you select and access your choice of premium news articles and content from our range of partners, which include the Wall Street Journal, Associated Press and the Miami Herald. Invisibly’s push notifications keep you on the pulse of breaking and emerging news, delivered directly to you based on your news preferences.
Fancy the opinion of a sports news buff? Why not follow them on social media platforms like Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram? If you enable notifications when your favorite thought leader or content creator posts, you will receive alerts.
A few mobile service providers offer news alerts as part of their services. Call your service provider to send breaking news alerts to your phone on your preferred messaging service.
When you visit your favorite local news or world news website, a little pop-up may appear asking you if you’d like to turn on notifications for relevant news.
Catching breaking news is just so simple now, thanks to the wide range of free news apps available for iOS and Android. You can customize your settings and select your preferred topics and news categories. You may not want to be woken at 3am though (or perhaps you do, no judgment), so make sure you set your breaking news alerts to your preferred schedule.
Always be on the cautious side. While news aggregators are in pursuit of the truth, there may be a few fake news gremlins popping up every now and then. You may want to read a few articles on a subject. If you’re still unsure, we’ve created a helpful guide on how to spot fake news.
