Taptu has updated the Android version of their popular news reader to version 1.3, and now brings the customization to a whole 'nother level. The folks at Taptu call it being a "news DJ" and it fits. You can mix your own news feeds from scratch, using Taptu's pre-loaded site feeds (they have thousands of popular blogs, magazines and newspapers), Bing's RSS search and feeds from your Google reader account to build and curate your own news stream. You also can add your Facebook feed and Twitter timeline, and "like" or comment, and reply and retweet right from the Taptu app. You're not restricted to one news stream either -- you could build one for Android news, one for local news, and one for Charlie Sheen if you like. #tigerblood
Taptu has upped the bar with this one, and they kept it free for Android devices (Android 1.6 and up). It's pretty slick, and well worth checking it out. The download link, and Taptu's press release are after the break.
