Last year at a small business event, the public relations speaker, asked the room how many people read the newspaper?
My hand was the only one that went up. Although I generally don’t buy the paper – I’ll just read it if I buy a coffee in the morning at the cafe.
So where can we get trustworthy news online? From news stories about the latest scientific studies to what technology has just been released, here’s where you can go.
The BBC News app brings you news from the BBC and their global network of journalists. The app also offers the BBC World Service Radio streamed live, social features and personalisation so you can re-order the news categories to suit your interests. I like to watch the videos of the day on my commute home. You might like to change your settings to the compact layout.
The ABC promises to deliver Australia’s most trusted source of local, national and world news. Think comprehensive, independent, in-depth analysis, the latest business, sport, weather and more. You can add your location for local news and selection your topics for better customisation. You can also turn on breaking news and political notifications.
The Flipboard app aggregates content from social media, news feeds, photo sharing sites and other websites. It presents the articles in a magazine format and allows you to ‘flip’ through the articles, images and videos being shared. Readers can also save stories into Flipboard magazines.
