News360 just updated its web and tablet apps for Honeycomb tablets and the iPad yesterday to dig deeper into your social networks to deliver news that you might actually like to read. That doesn’t mean the app doesn’t let you control what you read: you can always browse news categories and read anything you like, connect or disconnect networks you don’t want associated with the app, or just look through the top stories without logging in at all.
If you do log in, you can also add your own interests to help it sort the news for you, or your location so the app will pick up local news and weather as well. The app is one of the most highly customisable and personalised news services we’ve seen. Best of all, News360 is free on all platforms.
