The 10 Most Disruptive News Apps of 2012 | PBS MediaShift | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

According to research produced by Nielsen, as of 2012 the majority of phone owners in the U.S. now operate smartphones. Accordingly, the growth in app markets for Apple and Android continues unabated, and 2012 brought users a strong list of powerful news and content browsing options.

 

Publishers, in particular broadcasters and newspapers, were quick in releasing apps for the first-generation iPhone and Android handsets, but 2012 was remarkable for the number of great mobile apps that were developed to disrupt news consumption.

 

On the footsteps of startups such as Flipboard, Pulse and Stitcher, we've put together a list of some of the most innovative and refined mobile apps to come along within the past year, along with a couple of existing apps that went through a "rebirth" with a comprehensive redesign. These apps represent improvements in bulk aggregation, the evolution of the app ecosystem that has produced "companion" apps, as well as some potentially disruptive concepts....

13 Alternative Ways to Consume Your News

13 Alternative Ways to Consume Your News | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

How we consume the news has changed dramatically over the years. With the rise of social and information networks like Twitter and Facebook, we now have access to our own crowdsourced news wires.

 

Add to that an army of applications reinterpreting the magazine and newspaper for mobile and tablet forms, and what we have is a news media renaissance that puts the reader's interests above all else. Should you prefer to discover news through social connections, you can turn to Flipboard, Smartr or XYDO. If you want to consume news from just the publishers you trust, then you'll likely develop an affinity for Pulse or FLUD. But if you'd rather your application tell you what to read, Zite may be right for you. And, we're just getting started.

 

What follows is a collection of 13 different apps and services that provide you with alternative ways to consume news....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Great list! You're sure to find one that works for you.
