If there's ever an app I'm always willing to try out, it's a new newsreader. And today we bring you Flud News (or FLUD News) for Android. It's a graphically intensive newsreader, with story thumbnails getting prominent play. Flud comes preloaded with a few feeds -- there's The Flud, which features stories aggregated from various sources as voted on by Flud's users, plus a few other design and tech-related sites. Or, you can include your Twitter timeline, add your own feeds, or connect to Google Reader and pick and choose from feeds you already follow.
Graphically, Flud is beautiful. The ability to easily bookmark and share stories makes it that much better. Other features include:
- Search for sites, blogs or other RSS feeds
- Customized categories and sortable feeds
- Sync with Google Reader
- Option for web view
- Full-screen mode
- Tweet and retweet from your social stream
- Share to Twitter, Facebook, Email
- Offline reading mode
This is one you definitely need to check out, especially seeing as how it's free. And check it out we have. Hit the break for our quick video hands-on and download links.
