NewsLoop is a powerful news curation and sharing tool that allows you to create custom categories and displays that can then be shared, saved, and synced between devices. The result is one of the more powerful news-focused apps on the App Store for the iPhone, and a great way to access and interact with news stories from your device, especially with the demise of services like Google Reader.
The app starts slowly the first time as it loads the news sources. This only happens once, however, so it's not a major inconvenience. After the initial setup, you will get a very well-documented tutorial on how to use the app and can then start setting up your account. While creating an account is optional, it is recommended if you want to share your stories with other users, or sync between devices. The Loop, itself, is broken down into Cover Stories, Hot Topics, Local News, and a dozen or so other categories by default (you can add more, however, including custom-created categories). You can also choose which sources are used and the app will sort through and show you what it thinks you will be most interested in.
NewsLoop is a fast, easy-to-use app that is perfect for sorting through large volumes of articles and headlines from diverse international news sources. If you are interested in learning more about the world but don't have time to sift through online sources or local stories to find what interests you, this app may be a perfect fit for you.
