and the Widget is...

Still in beta, but launching soon. We got tones of feedback in our various beta channels. Most of them are very encouraging and supportive. People love what we do... and that feels great!

Obviously, we are still missing many features. The top request from our beta testers was to add an Android widget... well, here it is!

It took a bit longer than we thought and three or four iterations until it felt right... we looked at quite a bit news widgets and felt there is room for a different approach. We thought the most important thing about a news widget, other than its looks, is the ability to easily customise news sources and display preferences... and this is exactly what we did... hope you like it... please tell us what you think... 




  1. Very impressed with the news tab app. It's everything I've been looking for in a news reader. The only criticism I might have is the scrolling function of the widget. It would be more comfortable to be able to scroll through the articles be swiping up and down in the widget instead of using the small arrows. Maybe also allow the widget to list multiple scrollable articles as a configurable option? Other than that, well done on a great app.

  2. Hi, thanks for the feedback. We are glad that you like NewsTab. We are constantly working on the new improvments, and In the near future, We will improve our widget.
