This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Newsdesk provides a quick and elegant look at the world's headlines, from a selection of major news outlets.
While ordinary RSS readers give you hundreds of links to wade through, Newsdesk cuts it down to just the single story on top of each site's frontpage at any given moment.
Since it only takes a few seconds to see what the major stories are, you can make sure you stay updated throughout the day - no matter how busy you are.
Additionally, you can dive into any story simply by tapping on it and opening the original website where it's published.
* Bonus feature: Newsdesk contains an optional set of headlines from major Norwegian online newssites.
NOTE: Newsdesk is not meant to be a substitution for in-depth surfing through your favorite sites, blogs and niche publications. Rather, Newsdesk's selection of newssources is tailored simply to make sure you don't miss any major breaking stories throughout the day.

What's New in Version 3.1
- Landscape mode now enabled when viewing stories (and videos!)
- Added option to open stories in Safari
- Minor tweaks and enhancements
I panned the previous update. This new update fixes most of my complaints, and hey landscape is nice bonus. The devs got it right on this go around, and I'm happy to give a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ because of it. Awesome update to an awesome app that's been on my homescreen since 2008 (the only third-party app to do so).
