    Is it just me, or is that this category in the App Store entirely unloved?

    I love Google News on the web - are there any suitable replacements for multi-source news readers on the iPhone? I can only find RSS Readers or Single Source apps.

    I've tried several...

    NPR
    USA Today
    AP Mobile
    etc...

    New Addict beats the all.

    News Addict ??

    Is this anything more than a Bookmark?

    News Fuse and News Addict appear to be just collections of bookmarks with some added graphics.

    Fluent News can be read entirely offline, comes from multiple sources, and collects stories in one place rather than repeating the same story from different sources. I like downloading the news in the morning or afternoon and then reading them offline later (it still connects to get new stories, and I've requested automatic sync as an option rather than the preset upon opening the app). But if you've already downloaded most of the stories, updating usually takes little time, only if net connection is spotty and slow does it take a while.

    It's like 45 bookmarks with a great interface.

    News Addict is also formatted for iPhone.

    You get the content of many different sites and sources that you can view on your iPhone.

    I like news addict because everything is seen in one interface. The book marking aspect doesn't bother me. What I don't like is going to several different apps for my news.
