About this app

Newsbriefs is a news aggregator app that curates top news stories from Germany, Spain, France and the rest of the world in English. We present news as easily navigable news cards of 70 words or less. Whether you are riding a bus or having a sandwich, just open NewsBriefs and update yourself with everything important before you are done.
We only collect information from credible news sources. For world news stories, we use sources like BBC news, New York Times, Al Jazeera, Reuters, etc. and European news from sources like El Pais, El Mundo, Le Figaro, Le Monde, Zeit, Vox, etc. All our news cards include links to the original news articles so you can read more if you are interested.
If Merkel announces a new economic policy or Boris Johnson has some Brexit news, we make sure that such political news is digested and presented as simple news cards. We also bring real time sports news, including Premiere League news, La Liga news, and Australian Open news among other tournaments. Our team also rigorously searches the web for latest tech news and business news to keep you updated. A dedicated team at the same time is looking for entertainment news so you can also keep up with the Kardashian’s without having to look for it.

Edit 2022: with the timeline feature I cannot find the sources/URL at all. Not good. Original review 2020: Nice app. I miss the ability to share the source of the article and not just the image. When I click on the source, it displays it without the ability to copy the URL or share using the sources social media sharing links. Its a very important and missing feature. I do sometimes prefer sharing sources and not just the image depending on the topic and the person I'm sharing it with.

Overall the app is well built. One can easily read the news in no time and stays informed about what is happening. Only issue I faced was the widget doesn't seem to work on my phone. When I try to open a news, it redirects to google and there is shuffle isn't working as well on my Android device. Hope it gets updated in the next update.

I've enjoyed using the the app on my Android device till it stopped working a couple of days ago and I got an 'oops, something went wrong. Try again' message. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and still receive this message. Can help sort this out. I enjoy the app and am a subscriber.
