App Review: Bullet News

Bullet News is a new app for Apple and Android devices. It gives you the latest news from around the world in under 10 seconds, pulling stories from trusted sources like Reuters and Sky News.

When I first started trying out Bullet News, the thing that appealed most to me is the fact that you can personalise it. All the stories on the app are categorised into different sections - world, sport, entertainment etc. This way you can easily flick through to find what you want to read when you want to read it. You can also edit your news feed, delete specific sources, or choose to only show stories from specific sources.

Because it's optimised for phones, this makes Bullet News perfect for those with a busy lifestyle. It's ideal for catching up with the latest news on the go.

The articles are also set out in a really easy-to-use layout, with a simple style that makes the app clutter-free and accessible. This also makes the stories easy and fast to read, meaning you don't waste time waiting for it to load like some other news apps. All the stories are reduced down to the basic facts and bare bones using bullet points (hence the name). Because the design and interface are so simple it also looks really appealing. The colours are minimalist and don't detract from the point of the app, which is to efficiently deliver personalised news stories to the reader. Everything is short, simple, and to the point - this is the news app of the future, optimised for the age of tl;dr.

Bullet News is informative, easy to use, and best of all it's free, so there's no excuse not to download the app!
