About this app

VISUAL REVAMP
App is redesigned to make it easier for you to find articles by image and title. You can quickly access topical news and your favorite genres.

THE ONLY NEWS APP YOU NEED
With News Suite, you no longer have to visit multiple sites and apps to stay in the know. It organizes articles from 1000s of feeds into two tabs so it’s easy to find what’s relevant to you. The “News” tab keeps you up to date on a wide range of current affairs, while the “My Feeds” tab brings you articles customized to your personal interests. We’ve partnered with the world’s most popular publications so there’s always new, quality content to engage you.

YOUR NEWS, TWO WAYS
- With our unique two-tab design, you can switch between the news you want and the news you need with the tap of a finger.
-The “News” tab is where you can read up on a wide range of organized genres such as: General News, Entertainment, Sports, Food and more.
-The “My Feeds” tab is where we bring you a personalized array of content based on your favorite topics.


KNOW NOW
-When you enable push notifications you’ll receive important news stories as soon as they develop.
-With our ”Scheduled News” feature, you can customize push notifications for certain topics to appear periodically.

SAVE AND SHARE
You can save articles to your bookmarks list to read later. Plus, we make it easy to share your favorite stories with friends on Facebook and Twitter.

-Tips for Use-
■ How to Read News from Your Own Country/Region■
By default, the region setting of your "News" tab is taken from the language and region settings of your device. For example, if your device’s language is set to “English (United States),” then news from the U.S. will be displayed. If you are unable to read news from the region you are staying in, you can use the method below to change the region setting.
* Please note this resets the app to its initial state, deleting all feeds and bookmarks which have been registered.
1. Go to "Apps & notifications > News Suite > Storage & Cache" in your phone settings and select "Clear Storage".
* This will delete feeds and bookmarks which have been registered.
2. Restart News Suite
3. Select the link for "Terms of service" from the starting screen
4. Choose the region you stay in under "Select your language/region"
■ Setting Up Push Notifications ■
Users can receive periodic updates via push notifications with "Scheduled News," as well as push notifications for important news articles with "Additional feeds and other info of interest"
You can turn notifications on or off, and set timings, by selecting "Settings," followed by "Notifications," from the upper right menu.
■ For Xperia Users Wishing to Uninstall the App ■
If you wish to uninstall the app from your Xperia device, you may or may not be able to do so depending on your device's model. In such cases, you can go to "Settings," followed by "Apps," and then select "Disable."

Exactly what the name states. Just a news feed collected from multiple sources. No frills. It works great, although I would love a search feature (I cannot find one, although I suppose there could be one somewhere...). I wish the categories were a little more refined. For example, I see many articles on movies in the "Tech" section. I guess this makes a little sense, but I would rather the section focused solely on technology and gadgets. Otherwise, a perfectly fine app!

I have been using it for a number of years, and I guess I would say I really like it. love the interface, the navigation between feeds through tabs. It also requires no registration, and supports Keyword filters (Doesn't work very well on some search topics, works very well on others.). As cons: No sync (but no account, so it's understandable), no way to get rid of ads (unless you have an adblocker on your network), and censorship (couple feeds of mine don't work anymore. They do on other apps)

The user interface is hard to navigate and looks like a webpage from the 90's. My biggest complaint with the UI is that when you click on an article it only loads the first few sentences and then the rest of the screen is ads. To actually read the article you have to click read more. That's just stupid design. On top of the bad UI they decided to put ads everywhere. They should change the name to Ad Suite because the news is secondary in this app.
