Save time and stay informed. Circa is your personal news wire, delivering to you the most important stories the minute they happen, and enabling you to follow those that matter to you so you'll never miss what happens next!

Long news articles and small screens don't play well together. Circa's editors work hard to solve that problem by condensing the news and making it easier to read while on-the-go. Hunting for updates to a story you care about is also a thing of the past with Circa's new feature, Wire. Follow any story and any time Circa's editors have an update we'll notify you, showing you only what's new – no more repetitive reading!

In Circa News 3 we've added a brand-new feature we call Wire. Each day you'll get a Daily Brief that will have stories, carefully curated by our news team, but always up-to-date in the minute you read it. With Circa, you won't have to settle for stale news digests.

Don't work to get the news, let the news work for you! Our editors strive to make the news easier and faster to read, covering the day's Top Stories, and everything from World News to Technology to more Offbeat topics.

• Catch up quick – Never worry about intimidatingly long articles again! Circa's news team boils down stories to just the facts, keeping you informed and saving you time!
• Follow the news – Rather than constantly re-reading articles on the same subject, Circa News allows you to follow stories that you’d like to stay up with. We'll send you push notifications each time a story you follow has been updated!
• Never miss breaking news – Using Circa News is the easiest way to keep up with breaking news. We're very careful about what we consider breaking news, sending you a notification as events occur, then allowing you to follow stories as they develop.
• Get a Daily Brief with all of the most important stories, delivered to you at a time of your choosing.
• Share stories & points that you find interesting via Email, Messaging, or Facebook & Twitter.
• Circa’s news coverage is produced by our own editorial staff from the best sources, which we provide alongside each point if you're curious.
• Every pixel in the app, artfully crafted

P.S. We also love hearing from our readers! If you'd like to send in any feedback, just hit us up at and we'll be sure to respond.

Customer Reviews

Impressed by their restraint

Just letting you know I am happy with Circa so far. I read about the app in Wired and downloaded it. I appreciate the way that you sort through the clutter and only report when there is something worth saying. So far I have had two alerts and they both have been stories worth hearing about. I am impressed by your restraint.

Awesome way of keeping up to date

This us great if you quickly want to keep up to date about news that interests you. Small links to more information as well as links to sources at the bottom make this a very legitimate news service for me.

Quite simply the best news app

Circa allows you to catch-up quick, follow stories that are important to you and has smart alerts for news you need to know about now — Circa is quite simply the best news app.
