Flud News

Yesterday's app of the day was Flud News.

Flud News is a great new reader for android devices (though it is only currently customised for phones, not tablets). In a similar way to other Apps such as Feedly or Pulse, Flud news makes keeping up with new content quicker, easier and far more graphically pleasing than a standard RSS feed or website.





In the words of the developers:


Introducing a new kind of social news reader. Flud is a place where everyone has a news personality. For the first time ever, the things you read about give you topical credibility among your friends and followers. Beautiful design, simple user interface, and integrated social features make Flud the best place to read your news.
