Welcome to inkl, the world's best news app. See how we’ve changed the news in 210 countries.

The world of so-called 'free' news, especially on social media, is devolving into clickbait, fraud and celebrity drivel. It's a competition to see who can capture the greatest share of your time everyday. In fact social media companies measure themselves on this statistic.

And the stories you see on inkl aren't there to trick you into seeing more ads. We show you breaking news stories that the world’s top editors deem newsworthy!

We know you have unread emails in your inbox and unfinished jobs on your to-do list. This is a fast, fragmented, and bewildering world. inkl is here to save you time and help you make sense of it all.

Here’s some of what makes inkl the world's best news app, and the last news app you’ll ever download.

Great news app!


This was the news app I’ve been wanting! It’s straight forward and easy to use without all the clickbait and random ads littering the page. You can customize what sources you want to receive news from and make your own tags to follow stories that are more topic specific. I’m still in my free trial, but the content and the app are good enough to make me seriously consider buying a subscription. I was a bit deterred by the subscription price per month being $10, in comparison with apps like Reuters and even Apple News, which are free for the most part. But for some new sources like The Washington Post and The Economist you need to have a subscription to their specific periodical to gain access to certain content. I can see how the $10 inkl price could be worth it in that regard. One flat fee per month for access to all those periodicals except WSJ and Barron’s (which i don’t read anyway).

The news app for objective readers


Never thought I would write a review for a paid news app, but INKL is exceptional! Well curated news from sources with a history of strong objective reporting. Just read a superior
article from Foreign Policy journal that I would have missed without this app. This app also helps you to dig down in a subject. The good news feature is great also. My only “complaint” is I wish there was an option to switch to black on white type

Developer Response

Hi Eastoneddie,
Our team loved reading this review! Thanks for the shining five stars.
You can change to black type over white by switching to Day Mode in the inkl app. Just tap Settings > Reading Mode > Day. (You can always email us at if you have any trouble).
We'd love to give you an inkl gift to share with a friend (ahem, 100 free articles). If you'd like to redeem this, shoot us an email at and we'll take care of the rest. Happy reading!

Great News App.


Good news reading app. Kind of like the Netflix of newspapers. I would highly recommend this app to anyone who wants to read a wide variety of news to get a better more rounded view of the world we live in. The interface is clean and the curated content is relevant. You could also go to the source and read the entire newspaper. To the developers.. well done
