iOS/Android: Taptu is a news reader for your mobile device that blends your favourite feeds, your social networks, and a curated news experience powered by real people behind the scenes that help you discover, read and share news that actually interests you.
Taptu is in a pretty crowded field; apps like Feedly, Pulse and News360 already do much of what Taptu does. Taptu stands out because of its deep integration with the social networks you already use. Instead of just pulling content from your Facebook or Twitter streams, it serves as a Facebook and Twitter client and lets you read your streams as well as the news and interact with both.
The app combines your favourite feeds with custom stories Taptu provides based on your Facebook stream, articles and videos your friends are linking on Twitter, and other top stories and trending news topics. Taptu also hooks completely into your Facebook and Twitter streams, and lets you share, like, tweet, and retweet stories directly from the app. You can also update your social networks through the app if you find something you want to share with others. If you’re looking for a news reader that integrates well with Twitter and Facebook, Taptu is worth a look. It’s not alone though: for more suggestions, check out our top five best news aggregators.
