Twitter is free for Android and iOS.
Tell Flipboard about the topics you want to stay up to date with, and it will create a gorgeous personalized digital magazine for you.
Plus, when it pulls articles from the web, they appear without all of the usual advertising and extra material attached.
The aforementioned share icon also lets you share both your curated news magazine and individual stories with your friends.
Flipboard is free for Android and iOS. You can follow news sources, check out trending stories, and configure push alerts straight to your phone.
Adjust these settings by going to the Notifications tab and then tapping the cog icon on the top right of your screen.
To see alerts when a major story is breaking, turn on Push notifications by toggling the switch next to it, scroll down, and—under the From Twitter subhead—check the box next to News.
