SmartNews is a free news reader that lets you browse headlines across a wide variety of news topics.
A big benefit for commuters is that you can set up delivery times.
All the news is downloaded to the app, so even if you have no connection, you can still read the news offline.
If you want more videos and photos with your news, check out Wildcard.
The app curates major breaking news and taps into your Twitter account to customize your feed.
You can save stories for reading offline.
Plus notifications keep you updated about ongoing news, like a sporting event or a global conflict.
And finally, News Republic tries to learn from your reading habits to build a personalized news feed.
Choose from a grid of topics on the home screen, or search for popular websites and news outlets.
The app keeps track of what you read and uses that data to deliver custom news in the future.
