    I tend to look at New York Times the most because it loads quick, it's easy to read, and it gives you the top headlines.

    I like the AP one a lot because you can add all your subcategories, but that thing takes forever to load.

    I don't use it often, I just open it up while waiting at a restaurant or something to see what's happening in the world.

    Anyone recommend anything better than the NYT?

    Personally I use 'BBC News' by Jim Blackler. It's very fast, looks nice and gives breaking news alerts.

    I'm using Google News and Weather. All it says is version 1.1.7.

    I don't remember exactly where I got it from, but it's a great app.

    Google FastFlip in the browser is really good, and Express News is pretty good too.

    However, I've resorted to using a second Twitter account just for news and follow all my local and major news sources on it. I use HTC's PEEP Twitter client for my personal Twitter account, but I use Seesmic in 'large font mode' to follow the News.

    National News I follow:
    ABC
    NBCNews
    CNETNews
    CBSNews
    CNN
    cnntech
    CNNLive
    foxnewsbrk
    cnnbrk
    fxnscitech
    foxnews
    Was following foxheadlines, but that one had too much coming in so I unfollowed.

    Local News I follow:
    ABC and NBC news affiliates
    The local Bee newspaper

    A second twitter account for it is a really good idea. The only reason I signed up for twitter is so I can sit there on draft day and trade deadline day in the NHL and stare at it while watching the live coverage on tv.

    I use Express News. It has a widge that displays the top ten stories, that can be set up to be whatever you want (AP top stories, sports, etc.) Updates well for me.

    I love the 'Sky News' for Android app (for version 1.6 and over). Up to date and the video is really smooth.
