    Apple’s News app is only available in the US, UK and Australia. What news apps do you use and/or recommend as an alternative?

    It's a shame that News and TV app or limited to only those countries. Apple should invest more in getting teams that work on these apps to other countries as well.

    I kinda feel bad for having to resort to Microsoft News app on an iPhone but since Apple is lazy...

    I do like Google News, but it feels a bit sad that were unable to use Apple services, and instead have tor resort to Google/Android services.

    Don't like Google News. Flipboard, I find it too messy. Microsoft News is more similar to Apple News and is curated.

    Really, if Microsoft arranged to make deals with media outlets in so many different markets, big and small, what stops Apple from doing the same?

    At the moment I'm mainly using Facebook as a news feed (by subscribing to news outlets pages), but I'd like to ditch Facebook once and for all.

    News Flash on the AppStore . It's multi language and you get news from many different countries . I've been using it for years .
