NewsHunt aggregates stories from over 85 regional Indian newspapers written in English and in 10 Indian languages. It's neat, accessible, and informative.


Free and popular: Because NewsHunt has many users, the developers are more responsive to feature requests and the need for bug fixes. While the app is free, you have to put up with a persistent ad at the bottom of the screen.

Customizable background and font size: To suit your preferences, you can change the app's background color and text size. The changes are applied instantly.

Alerts and notifications: NewsHunt can flash news alerts even when you're not using it by running in the background.

Indian text rendering not dependent on the device: The app can still display Indian text even if your iPhone or iPad lacks the needed fonts.


Slightly annoying ads: The banner advertising is persistent, appearing in almost every frame of the interface. There is no option to upgrade to a "premium" package to get rid of the ads.

iPad version is a different download: You need to install another version if you want NewsHunt on your iPad. This version is optimized for iPhone 5. The app's iTunes page describes that it can work with both the iPad and iPod. There should have been a clarification regarding the more appropriate version for the iPad to provide a better installation experience.

Bottom Line

If you are interested in news and current affairs related to India or that are offering an Indian perspective, NewsHunt is a great app to have on your iOS device. The only downside is the aggressive advertising. Even so, the app remains worthwhile.
