For those of you wanting to keep in touch with what's going on in the world of Technology, you may want to give Tech News Tube a try. The apps a news aggregator that lists out a summary of the latest stories taken from a variety of tech sites. Including:

  • Ars Technica
  • Engadget
  • GigaOm
  • Mashable
  • Digg
  • CNET
  • Tech Crunch
  • Business Insider
  • NYTimes
  • PC World
  • Slashdot
  • Techmeme
  • Wired

The app lists out the latest news stories and has a detailed intro page allowing you to read more by opening the full webpage within the app.

The usual share options are included so you can quickly get it on your social site or email your friends. What I found useful was the app saves your most used social options so you can quickly access these when sharing articles. It's great to see developers understanding people want to share media quickly, with the least amount of effort. So remembering your last used option is a nice inclusion. Although I did have a problem sharing through the quick link for my twitter account. I'm sure this will be fixed in a future update.

It's great to see developers understanding people want to share media quickly, with the least amount of effort.

Jumping between stories is effortless, either swipe left or right or use the next and previous buttons. It would have been useful to have articles marked when you've looked at them, so on quick glance you can see what you've already looked at.

The main article listing page could maybe display more of the article intro. Not much, maybe just an extra line, but I often found myself having to click into the details page to find out what the article was about. Not a major problem but more of an intro would increase browsing speed, essential when you're dealing with so many stories.

If you enjoy your technology and like to keep up to date with whats happening, Tech News Tube is an excellent app to add to your collection.
