    I have heard good things about such apps as flipboard, pulse, news republic, rapture, and many more.

    Thanks!

    For me, it's Flipboard. I like how you can choose specific websites, or aggregate feeds based on topics. I also like the page flipping gimmick, though I think more sites need to support that. Oddly enough, I also pair it with Pocket, which I use for sites that I *really* want to read as I am assured that I won't miss anything by what goes into it. With Flipboard, I use that more for browsing vs Pocket which I use for subscribing.

    My favourite is Pulse. Tried Flipboard for a while, but Pulse just seems to work better for me. I add my favourite news feeds to it and it is my daily newspaper/magazine.

    Another vote here for Google Reader. Light on resources vs. some of the others.

    I was the opposite of this poster. I tried both Flipboard and Pulse and I like Flipboard better. Pulse was very good though. I just like the flipping pages feel better - it just seems natural on my phone (RAZR MAXX HD).

    Another Flipboard user here. Works nice and smooth on my phone and really like the options that come with it.

    The times of India app is good.... but I still prefer the pre- installed android news app called "News and weather". Gives me the news topic wise as per my choice and what I would like to read. It gives the headlines and clicking on the app will take you to the full news page.

    Pulse News is good but too much functionality in it, I want the application easier
