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

What's New in Version 3.1.4
This update fixes some critical bugs. Most notably, If you've experienced empty pages when loading the app, this is your update!
Great News App, But...
I love Circa. The interface is clean and easy to navigate, the news feeds are up to date and accurate, and the story information is to the point, while still providing adequate detail...but the app is only designed for the iPhone. It works on the iPad, but the detracting zoom feature all too painfully telegraphs "this app wasn't built for the iPad." I prefer to read on my iPad Mini, so the lack of a dedicated Circa app for the iPad often causes me to look at news app competitors while on my Mini. Add to this the lack of a landscape functionality, which at this stage of iOS development is simply unforgivable, and you end up with a great attempt at an innovative news app, but one that leaves Apple users left wanting.
Finally a news app I can use daily without constant freezing, ridiculous ads, or constant nagging for in app purchases. They notify me of my own personal feed every morning and I have it set for the notification to come through right when my alarm goes off. Highly recommended for anyone who likes to check the news daily!
Best news app for smartphones
Nothing else comes close, news made for mobile. Slick, gorgeous presentation. Just the right amount of information for reading on iPhones. Wire custom newsfeed and "Follow" puts them in a category all by themselves. No other news app is even in the same league as Circa. Delete the rest, this is all you will need.
