Apple has recently created a news application that comes already installed on the latest versions of Apple iPhones and iPads. Since the application is already installed on the device, set up is very easy.

The application allows users to customize their newsfeed with the sources of their choice. Once the sources are chosen, users have to option to receive notifications from these sites on their device or via email.

Top stories from these sources are then organized within the application for easy navigation through the most relevant stories. The news application is also connected to the newsfeed on the device itself. By swiping left on the home screen, the news application provides four stories it thinks the user would be interested in.

This application creates an easy, convenient way for people to access the news they want to read without having to search for it.
