Best apps for delivering the news

Facebook Paper, Flipboard, and more

Facebook Paper, released last week, heats up the competition among content providers who are aiming to create “the smartphone equivalent of a newspaper.” Paper turns out to be a great way to interact with Facebook, but it’s better at offering “a broad view of what’s popular” among the day’s news stories than providing “an authoritative take” on what matters. (iPhone only)

Flipboard remains a better news reader. Updated last month, it’s a “highly malleable” content filter that lets users prioritize topics and sources. But the app’s editors choose stories well, “turning a cacophony of news into a symphony.” (Free, Android or iOS)

Yahoo News Digest, which is only a month old, presents summaries and links for a handful of the day’s most important stories. (iOS)

Inside “presents up to 1,000 stories each day, in tight 300-character briefs.” (iPhone)
