Taptu – DJ your News

Taptu - DJ your News (1)

 

Description

After Google Reader shuts down on 1 July 2013, you will still be able to read all of your feeds on Taptu. Taptu does not rely on Google Reader to allow you to access your favorite feeds.Taptu is a social news reader that puts all your favorite stuff in one app.Add your favorite web sites, blogs, and social networks like Facebook or
Twitter, and see them transformed into gorgeous visual streams.

Create highly personalised streams in the StreamStudio: Merge several news feeds into one stream, and rename and color-code
that stream. Turn on Taptu Magic to let Taptu learn what you like and tailor your
streams to your interests. Create customized keyword searches to keep you up to date on a
specific topic.

Read and reply to what your friends write on Facebook and Twitter.

Save articles to read them later using Instapaper, Pocket or Taptu’s bookmarks.

Sync your streams across devices, platforms, and your browser at taptu.com.

Reviews

TechCrunch: “The design itself is sleek and clean, allowing you to separate each stream…If you are a power reader or a news junkie, Taptu’s app is the way to go. Not only does it allow you to access a large number of news sources (thousands), in an easy to read interface, but it allows you to personalize and customize your feeds”

Wired.com: “Taptu’s secret sauce lets you mash up mixed streams…I didn’t give up on it after some initial enthusiasm. I kept going back not only to read up on things but also to try things out that occurred to me randomly and to tinker with feeds”

Widgets

A number of highly customizable widgets including scrollable Lists and Stacks, with custom update times and multiple backgrounds.
