Are you a fan of the news and finding out the lastest and greatest information before anyone else? Well Taptu might be for you then.
Upon launching the app you are presented with a clean, elegant looking menu this will be your news feeds. The menu is presented in rows that you scroll through horizontally. This is a great way to browse any content and it provides the app with ease of use and allows the reader to enjoy themselves.
To the top right of the app there are 4 buttons/links these allow you to recommend the app via a number of ways, twitter, Facebook etc and recomend a feature to the developer for a future update. The next button allows you to “merge” streams. This function as you can guess allows you to merge two or.more sources say, engadgt and techcrunch togeher to save space and time, this is a great feature of Taptu and one which I use regually. The next button allows the addition of more streams, which you can pick from topics, featured or import “feeds” from your gmail account. The last button being the refresh all streams button.
Upon touching a piece of news the user is presented with a partition of the content with a button in the bottom corner to view the original passage. There is also a link to post the news content to mutiple social sites and email.
I use this app mutiple times a day to get my “fix” on tech,Android and other news in general. Not only does the app provide a quick and elegant way to view the news it also features a vast amount of streams and the get ability to share content with my twiiter followers via a quick button. I would reccomend this app to anybody who likes to be in the know.
