Flipboard

No Android news app can beat Flipboard. The news aggregator app analyzes the news one often reads and further offers similar stories.

Inshorts

InShorts is an Indian start-up that is gradually leveling with other top Android news apps because of its unique concept of delivering the news. Inshorts is an app based product that sends out news stories in 60 word bites for busy but interested readers.

It has a “MyFeed” tab which shows news based on your preferences. The app's layout is similar to “one flashcard at a time” showing 60 relevant words on a topic, while the entire article can be accessed by swiping left.

Feedly

The Feedly Android app is super-fast in updating content. It’s an RSS reader.  You can fine-tune the application based on your idea of the best news site. It  means you can pull from a variety of sites and sources.

It comes with integration with Facebook, IFTTT, Twitter, Evernote, OneNote, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and others. Additionally, you can access your feed on your mobile phone or on your computer with their website.

Dailyhunt

However, the news app in India has gradually become a mere tool for bombarding ads and sponsored content.
