Chrome/iOS/Android: If you like breaking stories, or you just want to make more room in your day for news, TL;DR makes it easy. They scour headlines to offer the latest stories and videos on topics of your choosing.
Available as either a phone app or Chrome extension, here's the basic idea:
We're racing around the Web, tracking down all the biggest stories and videos on the topics you care about most, then flinging the headlines at your iPhone screen as fast as we can….'
when you download it for Chrome, it gives you a bit of news every time you open a new tab.
I've been using it for Chrome, and it does pretty much what it says it will: simplifies breaking news. You open a new tab, and you're met with bunch of bite-sized, easy to scan headlines. It's essentially an aggregate news feed, but I like that it's simplified and easy to scan. But mostly, I like the fact that it gives me news when I'm not necessarily looking for it. I just open a new tab and happen to see what's going on in the world. It will also send desktop notification alerts anytime there's a new story, but you can turn that off in settings if you find it distracting. In general, it's an incredibly easy way to stay up to date.
