5 iOS Apps to keep up with the Latest in Tech
Just a decade ago, most of us would not have imagined how technology was going to be today. It’s growing, fast. With more change than ever before in the world of technology, it can be difficult and at times, time-consuming to keep up with the latest.
For some, RSS reader are enough however if you want more from your phone, using purpose-built apps is the way to move forward. Below is a list of 5 iOS apps that you should download if you like to stay at the forefront of technology.
Tech News Tube
If you like to keep you’re iOS device neat and not download too many apps to make your home screen cluttered, Tech News Tube is the app for you! Tech News Tube aggregates news from over 30 media sources and places them all into one stream. Sites include:
- Business Insider
- PC World
- Tech Crunch
The app also includes the ability to share news stories via social channels and email at the tap of a button. Retina optimised and an experience to use.
A great app for the busy lifestyle and for those working in the professional field.
CNET, one of the web’s most popular and oldest tech portals. Run by parent company CBS Interactive, who have 229 million people visiting their sites every month, thus reaching ~19% of the planet’s online population.
The CNET app is beautiful. Looks great, up to the minute news, and retina optimised. For those who love to watch videos, the app allows you to run on-demand and live videos. You also have photo galleries and the ability to share via email and social channels
The aesthetics of the app is beautiful. It has many similarities to the Bing app for the iPhone. Like Tech News Tube, the app aggregates stories from 12 technology sites:
- ARS Technica
- Pocket Lint
- Boing Boing
- Read Write Web
If you like to live on the web, you’ll be aware Digg was the leading source for the finest articles on the web however through a few failed updates. Digg lost most of its users which led to its death. Another company recently came by and scooped up Digg for a mere $500,000 and are currently building the site up from scratch.
The quality of articles are great and you often stumble upon some interesting news across all fields, including tech.
Digg is a work in progress and so you can expect some great updates in the near future to both their site and iOS app.
Many of you might question why I have included LinkedIn on this list. Although primarily a social network for professionals, Linked in has grown to offer much more. One fairly recent update was the introduction to the LinkedIn share button that paved way for the awesome LinkedIn Today.
LinkedIn Today is a fantastic portal to keep up with the latest and best news in almost any category and industry. You can follow an industry and never miss a popular article again.
This brings me to the iOS app. A few months ago LinkedIn redesigned their iOS app from ground up and one major feature that was added was the LinkedIn Today portal. You can use this app to keep up-to-date will all the later news and best articles in a number of industries including, tech, marketing, the internet, IT, etc.
Above are the 5 apps I recommend for every iOS user. Do you have any to add to this?
