AN­NOUNCED at Google’s IO de­vel­oper con­fer­ence, the re­vamped Google News app is now avail­able.

It’s a de­cent stab at an all-in-one news ag­gre­ga­tor, bring­ing you four tabs. The first fea­tures the For You area, which lines up the top five sto­ries the app thinks you’ll be in­ter­ested in (it takes into ac­count where you are to tai­lor this sec­tion). There are also other picks rel­e­vant to you which might not be so cur­rent.

The next tab of­fers Head­lines – the top sto­ries of the mo­ment across a num­ber of cat­e­gories (world, busi­ness, tech, sports

– the usual sus­pects).

Then there’s a favourites tab, for

your favoured sources of news, and top­ics, and saved searches and sto­ries. The fi­nal tab is the news­stand, in which you can sub­scribe to top in­ter­na­tional sources. It’s all pretty sim­ple and works well. As news ag­gre­ga­tors go, it’s one of the most fully-fea­tured and eas­i­est to use.
