Prismatic - Best news app - Free
Prismatic (free, App Store) is my favorite news app for iOS. If you like reading news on your iPhone, you'll dig Prismatic. It learns about your interests from your Facebook, Twitter and Google+ accounts and presents you with a clean news feed with a stream of interesting stories. The layout is speedy and concise and you can easily share a story by long pressing anywhere on it. When I've only got a couple of minutes to catch up on news Prismatic is my first stop.
Circa - Curated news you can use - Free
Unlike other news apps which rely on you to input your favorite topics or social networks (so that they grok them for topics) Circa (free, App Store) takes a completely different approach to news. It delivers human curated news in four categories: Top Stories, United States, Politics and World. There's nothing to set up, it just displays the top news of the moment in a given category as collected by human editors. What makes Circa unique is that it distills the relevant parts of the story from several sources and aggregates the information into one metastory. But it's the Follow Story feature is what sets Circa apart. When you follow a story the app sends you a push notification when a new data point is available. Good stuff.
