    Calling out all the news Ninjas out there!

    If there is any example of technological advancement, this is it. It gathers the news from all the possible sources. I can go through the news in a super-fast way, and when I am tired, which I am more than what you would think, it can read the news to me. I mean this is awesome, it does everything for me as for as news are concerned. I am just waiting for the day when it will also do grocery for me. So that I don't have to do it for my wife.
    But jokes aside this is a fine app I have it on my android captivate mobile phone, galaxy phone and nook. Look and feel of this app is great. It runs smoothly on all the devices. Ability to share the news, read the news, let it read the news to me, save the news for later read in one place a real bonus.

    Great Job developer, one more reason for me to make Nook a part of my everyday life.

    At least it's free

    Best newsreader for Nook so far, but needs work. Refresh button doesn't refresh all tabs, it waits to refresh when you select the tab. It doesn't refresh immediately, but refreshes when you are reading headlines and looses your place. Kills my battery even when refresh is set to 12 hours. Can't link to your Google news topics.

    Awesomeness!

    Newshog is a cute little app that lets you stay up to date on a lot of events you'd have no idea otherwise that were going on. It allows you to personalise your news feed, so you only get topics you find interesting, though its only shortcoming is that it really covers nation-wide news, so anything close to home, unfortunately, you actually have to look for in a newspaper. Gross. 5/5!
