AWESUMMLY is a short news app based in India. It features machine intelligence (AI) generated news summaries that are 60 words or less. With multiple national (India) and international sources, Awesummly broadcasts content from major newspaper RSS feeds with the added option to view these summaries in multiple languages.
Awesummly features a sleek design and a polished UI. The color scheme is not jarring and all short news are printed out in a card format which is visually pleasing as well as easy to read. Packed with nifty features such as saving for offline reading, night mode as well as enabling and disable post notification of important daily news.
All things in the world are based on a tell that ‘a coin has two sides’. The same applies to all apps that claim to be free. Usually free apps are laden with pop ups and banner ads.

The BBC News is a household recognized brand. It is very unlikely for BBC to not have a news app. I have been a user of the BBC News app for a very long time. Recently the app has been reimagined and redesigned and I love the new changes.
The choice of BBC News indexes are the same: Business, Technology, Entertainment and Health; with the added option of searching for your own choice of subject, be it people, place, things or themes. With added categories such as ‘most read’ and ‘most watched’, you get access to the hottest trending news articles and videos.
One of the best feature of BBC News app is its Live BBC World Service Radio, where top journalists share their insights and experience. This is available 24/7 and can be played in the background as you browse the app.

I personally believe that the habit of reading news is very crucial to understanding the current situation of the world. Even though there are millions of people who use the traditional newspaper to stay updated on the current situation of the world, this number is dwindling. With the digitization of newspaper, using news app is easier and more convenient than the traditional newspaper. My personal favourite is Awesummly, with its short news summaries that keep me informed about the ongoing events around the world in 60 words.
