As an accountant you have to stay on top of the news all the time. You should, for example, stay updated with President Donald Trump’s statements on tax reforms in the United States. You should be aware of the latest changes in tax regulations.
That’ why we have put together a list of free news apps, so that you don’t need to watch CNN or BBC to stay in touch with what’s going on with the world.
The best part is, none of the apps discussed here have any paywalls and are absolutely free. They pull together the most important and relevant stories, and even some bizarre ones, so that you don’t miss out on anything. So, here are the 3 must have free news apps for your smartphone!
Yahoo News Digest
You can always trust Yahoo to come up with the most important news articles of the day. The Yahoo News Digest app takes the most important articles and summarizes them in easy-to-read bites. Each news summary is color coded, so that you know what to expect and which category the news belongs to. There are icons that indicate whether the summaries include photos, tweets, videos and charts. You can easily swipe between the articles till you get exactly what you’re looking for. You can select news stories from a particular day by using the calendar option. As a news app, Yahoo News Digest is as comprehensive as it gets.
Digg is perhaps one of the most popular news aggregator apps out there. What it does is to compile all articles from various online newspapers and magazines into one easily accessible spot. Digg captures a snapshot of the most important news events of the day so that you know exactly what happened in the world during the last 24 hours without having to look elsewhere for the information. You can read sports stories from ESPN, political analysis from Fox News or product reviews from Gizmodo on Digg itself, without having to go anywhere. You can set your interests so that you get only your favorite publications.
Newsify is a one-stop shop for news and that’s what it is. You can set Newsify to get stories, blog posts and articles from your favorite newspapers, magazines, blogs and websites. Newsify compiles the latest stories from your favorite sites, which are then displayed in blocks, so that you can see the headlines and the photos. You can click on any of the articles and “favorite” it to be read later or to be shared with your friends. Newsify alerts you every time a new article is posted through a note that appears at the bottom of the page. It allows you to easily customize your newsfeed just the way you want it. The only drawback we could find with Newsify is that it is only available for iPhone. The company is still working on the Android version, and it should be released later this year.
