Top 5 iPhone News Apps

Best ways to keep up with the news on iPhone

If information is currency, then the digital age has made us all millionaires. We are now bombarded with information, both banal and vital, each and every time we glance at an LCD screen.

Much of this data takes the form of news updates. Thanks to dedicated info hubs and social networks, we've never been more aware of what is going on in the world.

To keep you from being swept away by this tidal wave of information, we have waded through the App Store archives and chosen our Top 5 iPhone news apps.

So, get your news goggles on and prepare for a glimpse of the Big Picture, 'cause it's about to get factual.

Boasting live news coverage, a customisable home screen, audio / video content, and social network integration, The Guardian's app is one of the most full-featured virtual newsrooms on the market. You'll have to pay a subscription for the complete package, but if you don't mind parting with a fiver, you'll get 12 months unrestricted access to this highly respected publication.
