About NewsTab (available for Web, Android and iOS):

NewsTab is a single place to read and share the news you care about from the publishers you love (global & local). Simply find and follow international & local news sources in over 130 regions and languages worldwide. Follow popular news topics (Headlines, Sports, Technology, Entertainment etc.) or create your own with Google News topics and Google alerts. NewsTab supports any RSS feed and seamlessly integrates with Google News and Twitter, making it super-easy to follow any news topics, hashtag, blog, newspaper, magazine or website.

NewsTab is a beautiful newsreader, designed for enjoyable browsing among your favorite news sources (via RSS and Twitter feeds) with a visual, image reach, experience. It combines the flexibility of open RSS readers such as Feedly or (the late) Google Reader, with the intuitive and visual experience of modern (but more rigid and closed) news apps, such as Flipboard, News Republic and LinkedIn Pulse.

With NewsTab you can easily follow any news topic, publisher or RSS feed, and organize them into news sections based on your preferences. You can also add your Twitter account and follow your timeline, users or hashtags.

For those of you who are following international publishers, we’ve built a powerful feed catalog, indexing millions of feeds from top global and local newspapers and magazines in over 130 countries & languages around the world. Top regions in our catalog include US, Russia, Brazil, Japan, Germany, and many more. Top languages in our catalog include English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and many more.
