Perhaps the main reason why we all own smartphones nowadays is that we all wish to feel connected. This usually takes the form of staying connected with friends, family, coworkers, and so on–but we also often need to remain connected to the world as well. Many of us consequently use our devices to keep up to date with the latest goings-on in the world, with sports, and more. And because of this, there are dozens of apps available that help us find and consume interesting news, as quickly as possible.
Although there are tons of news apps out there, not all of them are terribly convenient. Google’s own News and Weather app offers basic functionality, but those looking to customize are left in the cold. Not all aftermarket options offer widgets or tie into Google News as a source, so that’s not ideal either. Luckily, XDA Senior Member luciferabby decided to create Feed.Me, which brings Google News to your home screen in an intelligent and efficient manner.
Feed.Me is a simple and cleanly designed news widget that uses your browser history to collect and store Google Search topics. It then accumulates Google News items related to these topics. This functionality works both with Google Searches and Chrome. To use the app, all you need to do is add the widget to your home screen, and it’ll do the rest. You can also manually specify topics if you are so inclined.
If you’ve been looking for a great looking and highly functional news widget offering, head over to the Feed,Me application thread and give this a whirl._________
