News from Reuters sounds like a winner but does this news app deliver the right news to your handset in the way you’d want it?
Thomson Reuters Review
by on March 13, 2010
If you’ve not heard of Reuters its one of the major world suppliers of news, its bulletins are used worldwide as a primary source of information, alongside this it’s also a major supplier of financial market information. In many way the two go hand-in-hand as major news events affects markets in big ways. This free app from the company pours these information sources directly into your phone and does so in an obvious and readable manner.
Two sets of tabs offer world, business and market news with a second set of tabs breaking these down even further. Most stories have a thumbnail image and headline, clicking either takes you into a preview of the story with options to read the full thing, email it, fire it off to Twitter or save it for later.
The first obvious point is it’s very US centric despite Reuters being a UK company, and sadly there’s no obvious way to change the home region. You can however add your own RSS feeds so you can drop in the BBC News or T3 news, which does make up for this.
