You can now avoid trawling through articles that hold no personal interest, by personalising your news feed on your mobile device.
There are many apps available for Apple, Android and Windows devices that can help you do this; for example Feedly, Flipboard, Zite, YouMag and Google Currents, to name but a few
Let’s take Feedly as an example
Feedly is an application designed to “deliver all your favorite content in one place” by making contecnt from news sites, magazines, feeds, tumblr blogs, YouTube, Vimeo etc available all in one place.
First, download it from the app store for free
When setting up your content, you can select by subject area, and by language by sliding the search menu out from the right hand side of the screen
You can equally search for a specific publication, or content from the web
To add content to your feed, select the publication, and then touch the ‘ + ‘ to the right of the publication
You can organise your content as you add it, into subject area categories
Equally, you can flag articles to read later, or further explore the publication by following the corresponding sections in the menu available from the left hand side of the screen.
When you launch the app, your home page news feed will now contain articles from publications you have subscribed to.
Tap an article to read it in full, or sort your news feed by sector using the left hand menu.
