News360, the popular cross-platform news aggregator, is now available for Android tablets running Honeycomb. News360 takes a bit of a different approach, combining 1,500 global sources (yes, Android Central is in there, so no worries) and a beautiful visual style. If you're not familiar, the "360" view is a special treat, with article images floating in a spherical feeling cloud, hence the 360. The application makes great use of the new API's with the action bar and fragments, both in the search view as well as the article view. The developers have taken the time to really make a great example of a quality Android app, and we appreciate (and enjoy) that.
Besides the normal use of searching for tags, users can customize their own "feeds," and the developers say that future versions will analyze a your Facebook, Twitter, TripIt, and Evernote accounts to offer automatic personalization. That sounds like quite the feat, and I for one am very interested to see the result. In its current state, the application connects with your social accounts (Facebook, Twitter, ReadItLater, Instapaper, and TripIt) to share articles, and can filter results based on your location. Things are well on the way to a personal news channel.
And the best part of it all -- News360 is free. This makes it available for everyone with a Honeycomb tablet, and makes for a very easy way to download and evaluate the app for yourself. We've got the full press release, a series of pictures, and the download link after the break.
News360 is a next generation news delivery platform that is changing the way people discover, consume and interpret up-to-the-minute news from the world around them. News360 uses advanced semantic analysis technology and natural language processing to identify the day's top stories from more than 1,500 global sources, analyzed for relevancy and credibility, and delivered alongside personalized newsfeeds tailored to each user based on individual preferences, reading patterns and social data analysis. News360 is available for Android Honeycomb tablets, iPhone and iPad, BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, and Windows Phone 7 devices. News360 is privately held.
