10. RSS Savvy
RSS Savvy is the easiest way to follow anything that matters to you in just a few seconds. Automatic updates means things you care about will come straight to your attention when they’re published or mentioned. It doesn’t matter if it’s your favorite sports team, or even your hometown.

Feeds are automatically drawn from websites which align with your personal interests: so creating your own feed requires nothing more than defining a topic and clicking Ã¢ÂÂFollowÃ¢ÂÂ or by adding your own custom feeds.
What makes a good news aggregation app is not just the features it has, but also how you customize it to your liking. If you’re heavily into a specific interest or news, having multiple sources instead of just one will give you a more in-depth understanding of the updates or news. It’s always important to check multiple news sources!
