But one source that is readily more active and exceptionally popular among baby-boomers and millennials alike is none other but the ever-growing world of Android and iOS.

Microsoft News

It may have become outdated and old, but it has never lost its charm, not to this day. If you are searching for a platform that can provide you some of the best trending content in the technology world? Well, look no further than the Microsoft News. Formerly known as the MSN news, Microsoft is a massive news platform that offers a smooth reading experience to its users. The content published on Microsoft news is well-structured. It provides easy navigation to its users. And, without a doubt, if you’re a technology enthusiast, you can always find something that will entice you to carry on reading.

Google News

Formerly called the Play NewsStand, Google News has earned its keep for delivering relevant content using the powerful A.I algorithms belligerently working at the back-end. For example, just the other day, I was searching for topics related to behavioral sciences, and I came across an interesting piece on Reciprocal Determinism. Before that, I didn’t even know about the existence of such things. The smart android app highlights all the different perspectives on similar news by various publishers. It follows an intuitive approach and brings the full cover story to its users which makes the app useful.

Smart News

It hasn’t been long since Smart News has seen the light of day as one of the best news apps in the market. It is carefully designed as it scans over a million topics every second and organizes them under correct categories. What’s interesting about Smart News? Well, to begin with, you can customize your delivery time and get the latest news in your notifications. It also features a smart mode that shows important news with minimal graphics. It offers a seamless experience even when the Internet is slow. However, the stories published on Smart News isn’t their own. Hence, it shows the publishing source.

If you want a platform that can assemble the latest information, Smart News is an excellent app for you.


Another great platform to learn about the latest trends for any topic is none other but Feed.ly. It is an intelligent system that pulls up some of the most engaging content from the Internet based on your interests. For example, if you choose Digital Marketing, and select a few blogs covering digital marketing topics, you will eventually see all the content getting organized under the same belt.

It is a great app as it helps you to categorize your choices accordingly and learn the most recent.

If you like to be more personalized with your learning choices, Feed.ly can be a great way to learn.


If you want a platform that can offer you both relevant news and entertainment at the same time, then no need to look anything further than the Reddit News android app. The app is simply marvelous as it is a blend of news aggregators, message boards, and social media, giving a never-forgetting experience. Just like the website, it offers readers tons of content. You can subscribe to a platform or create your specific subreddits. The app has become pretty famous over the years and has one of the highly engaged communities. It holds a structure and functionality, you just can’t expect from a newspaper app.

If you want to search for technology trends which are popular and controversial, Reddit is the right place.


How about if I tell you that there is an app that can sum up every news for you in just 60 words? Sounds crazy, doesn’t it! But, if you want to learn fast and abundantly look no further than the Inshorts. It is an excellent app for fast-paced learners as it educates you and the rest by delivering unique content. Just like the content, the mobile app also features a unique app layout offering “flashcard flip” learning. You can read the entire article and shift to the next with just a swipe without any scrolling. Sadly, the only downside is the app contains too many unwanted ads.

If ads don’t trouble you, then, In Short, it is a great addition to your news learning arsenal.

So there you go, here are some of the best Android apps, I believe, offers a highly interactive experience. They can provide you with the latest and the trendiest in the technology arena.
