[FREE][APP][4.0+] Paper Route: A news reader alternative
What is Paper Route: A simplistic, fast, elegant news reader alternative for US news[UK and Indian Version available as well].
Why an alternative: I found myself having several official apps for news sources and my feeds list in apps like Flipboard was starting to get clogged with news feeds that I don't use on a regular frequency but yet would like to have around for the times I would want to check them. I wanted Paper Route to serve two main purposes: Be lightweight and nimble enough to act as a substitute and be comprehensive enough that I can not only replace feeds in my favorite apps but also official apps for news sources.
How does it do it: Paper Route differs from most other apps by having several subsections of news sources along with their main feed. So you could for example, check NY Times but also its World, Business, Sports, etc. sections. It includes many(all news websites in top 100 websites in the US) news sources, all bringing in their own array of subsections. It could(and did for me) result in leaner feeds list in your favorite news reader apps and elimination of news apps which you just use for content and not deep integration features(commenting, polls, etc.)
What else: I've just added offline reading feature. You could choose among a wide variety of flexible scheduling options to download news for later viewing. You could also add your own feeds to the collection that comes with the app and customize the list of news sources to match your preferences.
Thanks for your kind attention, and I hope you give it a try. If you have any questions or comments, just let me know in the comments. Cheers
