5. NYT Now is a brilliant and free news app.
The New York Times has made one of the best news apps with NYT Now. There’s an entire team at The New York Times that is responsible for making sure it is constantly updated with not just breaking news — and features — from the Times, but also with highlights from other news outlets. And the icing on the cake is its easily digestible breakdowns of the day’s news highlights.
Oh yes, and it’s free for anyone.
