    Sorry, did not know moderator would move this from it's original forum.

    I am looking for one good (definition to follow) News App for my Apple Watch.
    Requirements:
    Glance (that actually updates as opposed to the CNN app)
    App that actually updates without having to force close the app and reopen it (again like CNN)
    Breaking News Alerts (as opposed to the NY Times that seems only to send an alert if the White House is blown up)
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks, Steve

    The Google News app just came out today and I really like it. You can basically see one headline and picture in the glance and 10 in the app. Force touch one in the app and you can add it to your Safari Reading list. There is also handoff, so if you are looking at a headline on the watch, you can quickly read it on your phone.

    My one wish is that the 10 articles were less random. I tried re-organziing the articles in the App, but when that didn't work I didn't dig any further.

    I like News360 and Circa the best. NYTimes is great too.
