Tablet Apps for the Newshound – Make the most of your screen space

Jul 11, 2011

Mobile sites? Who needs mobile sites? Get all the latest from your favorite news sources on your tablet now, and enjoy these apps optimized to make the most of your big screen. Customizable widgets put the headlines on your homescreen so you’ll never miss a beat.

LinkedIn Pulse

This is my favorite new aggregator app. It came pre-installed on my Galaxy Tab and has a zillion options for notifications of new headlines, what news sources to pull from, and a widget to use if you like.


CNN App for Android Tablet

Exactly what it says on the tin. CNN is one of my go-to news websites, but their mobile app for my smartphone always seemed a little clunky. This one is optimized for bigger screens – looks good on Gingerbread and I am going to guess even better on Honeycomb.


BBC News

BBC News, with its thumbnail layout and customization options, is a good bet for tablet users who follow international news. (Beware of the other 5 apps called BBC News, they aren’t the same!)


NYTimes app for tablet

A little bird told me this was the first news company that really made an effort toward developing an app for the tablet work. NYT doesn’t disappoint.
