What's your best USA news app for Android phone

It's probably easier for me to Google this, and faster, but I would like to know from real people, not journalist, what's the most comprehensive and stable news app for Android Cellphone.

I've tried a couple and had some issues. So would like to double check and validate others opinion.

By the way, I know there a few nice apps for European news but I'm interested on the USA ones.

"News freak here" :-)

BBC News.



To be a bit more serious I set Google News to my home page on my computer, phone, Xoom.

It can be customized etc. http://news.google.com

There is Pulse, which is a great news aggregator, that allows to choose which websites, news site or RSS you want to subscribe to and display a thumbnail of each article. I use it every day on my Thrive. Very good app!

Thanks Joseph.

Yes, I tried that one. Really nice on my iPad but kind of small and busy interface for my Android cellphone.

Testing right now: USA Today, AP mobile and World News.

My favorite is News360. There's a version for phones and tablets. Free too! It displays the headline and story and also lists other news outlets (with links) to read their accounts of the same headline. Very nice app.

I use News Republic, they have Categories like USA, Technology, World or you can choose to view all of them by Votes (You can vote an article up or down) or Date. I don't really like the fox news app because it just takes you to their website.

Another vote for Pulse. I use it all the time on my Nook Color and iPod touch. Would love to see it for the HP TouchPad, but doubt that'll ever happen.

I use pulse, not really a news app, but a great rss reader.
