    There are a lot of ways to get news from both the Internet and print sources on your Android. But if you're tired of keeping track of web pages, and dedicated apps, and third-party aggregators that think a little too much for you, Google Play Newsstand might be what you're looking for.

    You'll find most of the big names you're looking for are just an easy download away in Google Play, and just a tap adds them right to your Newsstand. Once added, you can browse at your leisure, and enjoy a rich media experience with just enough bells and whistles to keep things orderly and flowing well, but not so many that things feel cluttered. Not to mention the Android design language in the user interface, which will make you feel right at home while you're reading.

    Google Play Newsstand is free in Google Play, and you'll find single issues and subscriptions for both news sites — like Android Central — or magazines in Google Play right from the app.

    I like subscribing to graphic novel news. Can find some crazy cool stuff on that subject.

    Dude. What if the word "NEWS" on the AC widget actually linked to the home page? #mindblown.
