A few times each month I highlight web or mobile apps that are useful to lawyers. Sometimes the apps are developed specifically for lawyers and other times they are non-legal apps but are nevertheless useful for lawyers.
Today’s app is FluentNews. This is one of my favorite, free apps for keeping up to date on the latest news. The most appealing aspect of this app is that it aggregates complete articles from an assortment of major news outlets, including The Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC news, Forbes, CNET, Bloomberg, CNN Money, BBC and more.
FluentNews provides access to the most recent news via a simple, intuitive interface. The app serves up “top news” on the first page and then allows you to explore different sections based on your interests, including Business, Technology & Science, Lifestyle, Travel, Health, Analysis, and Sports.
One of the best features of the app is that it organizes and prioritizes the content based on your preferences as gleaned from your interactions with the app. It also has sharing capabilities, making it easy for you to disseminate stories to your network via Facebook, Twitter and email.
