Best Chicago News Apps

Jun 30, 2011

Chicago is called the windy city because of it’s history in newscasting – not because of the weather. Here are some great news apps out of Chicago.

Chicago Tribune

This is a great news app from the Chicago Tribune. It allows you multiple levels of viewing choices – if you are on the go you can see just headlines, or if you have more time you can see the whole articles. It’s got photos, news, weather, local, national, and international news – and a lot more. Set favorites and share articles. Very nice UI. Recommend.


WGN News

This WGN app is supposed to have live streaming from WGN – but it’s usually broken. Still good for local news, weather, and sports.


FOX Chicago News

This is the Fox News app for Chicago. Very simple with headlines and stories. Could use a lot more detail.


Chicago News Lite

The free version of Chicago News is ad-supported. Get all of the local news from all the best local news sources. Very comprehensive in its sources, and the app is well-designed.


Daily Herald LITE

This news app from the Daily Herald has local news, weather, national/international news, business news, sports news and scores, politics/opinion, entertainment news and more. It has sharing via email/SMS/social networks and an easy UI and customizable view.
