Looks like Flipboard and Zite's days are numbered with News.
Just like Keychain killed 1Password.
Flipboard would deserve it after dropping their wonderful fullscreen design.
If only it was available in more than a few countries...
No, Keychain didn't even put a dent in 1Password. Its too automatic and invisible to be useful .
Flipboard was dead a while ago because of Facebook and Twitter. I think Apple News does it so much better though
I'll be deleting Flipboard and Yahoo News come iOS 9.
I will keep Flipboard...but we shall see!
Flipboard deserves it for not giving us a single feed with all subscriptions or the option to sort articles by oldest. Good riddance.
I deleted Flipboard few months ago. Can't pin point why I did though but I noticed I was on it lot less. I use to LOVE it.
So will we be able to choose whatever publications and websites we like to read to show up in our feed, or will we be stuck with whatever outlets Apple has already entered into a deal with?
Any idea if News will work with a US iTunes account for someone like me who doesn't live there ?
You mean that app that only works in the US, UK and Autralia? No.
They have to apply and get approved by Apple. Publishers can already start singing up.
I love Flipboard because I don't have Facebook, Twitter nor Instagram so that's my news' hub. News has potential but c'mon, three damn countries? Guess we'll have to wait for iOS 11 to have it worldwide.
I haven't used Flipboard in months. Used to love it though. It'll be interesting to try out News.
I honestly use Twitter for news...used to like Flipboard though.
I don't plan to switch from Flipboard, I like homogeneous apps; but I'd certainly give Apple News a try at least.
I don't see apple updating this much after release, at least for a year. Still thinking third parties have the edge with features etc. We'll see once it gets released.
All the bundled apple apps seem to just be forgotten about for long periods of time. How long has Podcasts or iBooks gone without an update? I know podcasts is getting one now at least. But I don't think they've touched it since it got bundled last year...
Too bad , I was really hoping it would work for me like Radio does :-(((
Slightly sidetracking, but is the News app not available yet on iOS 9 Beta 1?
Just installed iOS 9 beta 1 but it's not there. I live in the UK if that matters.
Same here and it would be rude not to try it at least.
I think that comment was meant to be sarcastic.
I don't see why the News app (and platform) is better than Flipboard. Yes, it looks nice and I am sure it will be really sleek and work very well, but so does Flipboard. Another plus for Flipboard is that it's available on much more countries than the News app will probably ever be. It is not that difficult Apple to make a News app available worldwide. #fail
Much smaller companies have already done stuff like that. Look at HTC for example.
They offer Blinkfeed and it works really great. It's my News aggregator of choice and it will remain. It's actually one of the main reasons I use my HTC One M9 instead of an iPhone..
