It makes browsing faster and more fun: the content of your rss feeds, news sites and blogs are transformed into pocket-sized cards which load very fast and are easy to browse.

I found in these apps, the news / topics are mostly pre-selected, you can’t search of your own. Besides, in most apps, you can’t increase the text size or maybe just to a certain size, which is still small and very difficult for me to read on my phone. And sometimes, in like Feedly, when I clicked on a news, there was just a summary of the news, not the full story or even no content.


List is useless without the best of the best! Below are the best:
