Flash News for Android Review
by on March 13, 2010
With its search engine aggregating millions of pieces of information every single day it is no wonder that Google has become a vital resource for news-gathering.
Flash News tries to tap into this, by offering a number of the feeds in one handy app. While it sounds enticing, the reality leaves a lot to be desired.
The app gives you four main news categories: Top News, Business, World and Entertainment. Flicking through each of these categories is lightening quick and so is the loading time for the actual articles. Because of the page furniture, though, the articles are presented in tiny text, making them a touch difficult to read.
You do get an image and embedded links which is a bonus and there is even the option to share the article with the world, via the likes of Twitter.
Your phone’s battery will strain under this app. Even though it will automatically shutdown the feed refreshing when the battery gets too low, the juice draining will you may think twice about having this app on all the time.
Flash News for Android is a great idea. It’s just a shame that it’s one which isn’t quite fully realised.
