First thing to mention, Bundle News is not doing anything new here. There are plenty of apps to choose from when it comes to saving news feeds on various subjects. Flipboard being one of the most popular, though my personal favorite right now is Trove. Where Bundle gets it right, is it is very organized and clean. Nearly all the popular sites are represented in easy to find categories. Once you’ve added all of your interests, you can choose to layout the stories in several aesthetic ways and then peruse the local and worldwide headlines.
Each story includes a headline, a picture and snippet from the article. To see more just tap the Read Full Story to take you to the site which populates in the app in its own browser. Stories can be rated with a thumbs up or down, shared to social media and even saved to read later.
I was really impressed how well everything is organized and customizable in Bundle. I can stick to reading my own bundle of stories, peruse categories or even search keywords if I’m looking for something in particular. No matter how many stories are in my bundle, everything loads very quickly, one issue that I’ve had with Flipboard. I mostly follow app and tech news and the most popular sources seemed to be represented. One complaint I might have is the ability to add other sources. If I wanted to add our site thesmartphoneappreview.com for instance, it didn’t seem I could do so. Aside from that fact, I loved using the app, with its very user-friendly design and multiple sharing options.
Bundle News app is available in the App Store now for free and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
