Our daily life is filled with a variety of tasks, getting up from bed, getting ready for work, traveling, reaching office, doing work, coming back home, relaxing, having dinner and going back to bed. In between all these minute tasks where are "filler" periods of time gap where we take a break and do nothing or something to take our mind off. This can be your time during travel in a public transport, during tea or just before going to sleep. Each one of us fills this time in different ways. In for one, love reading news especially financial news. I have a few favorite websites for such news which I like to read and to read them on the go I have their apps installed on my mobile phone. However, sometimes it becomes a little inconvenient to keep shifting from one app to another to read the articles. And even then in the end I end up using my browser to search for more interesting news if I am not too busy during the day. A quick solution to satisfy this need of mine to read interesting articles directly from one interface is satisfied by using a news aggregator app - Dr.News.

User Interface

To say the least, Dr. News is a least cluttered app. Most of the screen space is dedicated to the news. You can switch from one category to another with a simple switch. If you are on a low speed internet connection you have the option to disable download of images and get just text. While the top area is for the Categories, the bottom has a shortcut for the Home button, Subscribe section to news channels you have subscribed to, Images, Videos and Me section where you can configure few settings including the Text Mode which will disable image downloads. Here you can also select the Country you want news from. Other than that you have a Settings Menu where you can clear the Cache of the app, check About Us section and see other apps from the developer Dorado.

Wrap up

All in all, Dr.News is a great app for catching up of the latest news without much of a distraction. The app is boring in a good way in that it does not have have irritating pop up ads or even banner ads on bottom where you might click by mistake and be disturbed while reading an interesting piece of news. The news loaded up fast on my smartphone but then it totally depends on the speed of your internet connection. Though as mentioned before you can also speed that up by disabling download of images. One thing I felt lacking in the app as of now is that it is sourcing its articles from very few sources which can be increased to very good publications presently that are available online. In end, I would totally like to recommend this app to all you love to read news like me and want one app to take care of daily dose of the same.
