Don’t be Left Out! 5 Apps to Keep you Updated on Current Events

 Keeping up to speed with what’s happening all over the world and even in Uganda itself is becoming quite hectic and overwhelming lately because a lot is happening at the same time.

However, that could change today – Apple devices have apps to keep you updated. These apps provide users with the latest news, information, and updates on various topics such as news, weather, sports, and more. These apps basically help users stay informed and up-to-date on current events and trends.

Let’s dive right into getting to know which apps are a must have on your iOS device;

How Feedly looks like


This is one of the best news curation apps out there and it’s a must have on your iOS device because the mobile app offers a selection of broad segments such as tech, politics and science, among others, each populated by trusted outlets that you can quickly add to your news sourcing feed.

Although Feedly is an RSS reader, you can create multiple feeds, each tailored to your taste and utility. Then there are customization options, which let you pick between page and banner styles for scrolling past news lists, complete with an auto-mark function for opened stories. 

That’s gotta be cool!
