Save time. Stay informed. Circa is the best way to read and follow news on the go.

Long news articles and small screens just don't play well together. Circa solves that problem by condensing the news and making it much easier to read while on-the-go. Tediously reading long articles just to stay up to date is a thing of the past with Circa’s factual and comprehensive, but to-the-point news coverage.

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, US, World, U.S. Politics, and Technology News!

App Features:

• Catch up quick – Don't worry about intimidatingly long articles. Circa's editorial staff boils down stories to just the facts, keeping you informed and saving you time!
• Keep up with breaking news – Using Circa News is the easiest way to keep up with breaking news by sending you a notification as events occur, and allowing you to follow stories as they develop
• 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.
• 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.
• Offline reading – Riding the subway? Don't have an internet connection? You can still read all of the news within Circa News while offline.
• Every pixel in the app, artfully crafted

Circa is simple, factual, comprehensive. Circa is news, re-imagined for your mobile lifestyle.

Customer Reviews

Excellent app without a significant US bias

I wanted an app that would let me quickly catch up on the news, primarily technology and world news. This app gives you a range of stories each day, and I haven't been bothered by any biases yet, especially the prevalent US or UK centric natures of other apps. I like the breakdown of stories into little chunks, with the right quality and quantity of photos to illustrate the news.

Poor customisation

The concept is just great! However there is no option to customize the topics or add one of your personal. The number of default ones are just to little to choose from.

If they improve this, it can be an outsanding app!!

Finance and business topocs would be highly appreciated. Also the covery of news should not be limites to US only.

I've started reading the news again

This app does what it set out to do which is enable those with little time to read the news.
Almost perfect this app would have been given 5 stars if it had a UK section (which I'm sure will come with time), most of the news posted is quite USA centric.
Keep up the good work
