Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

I've been using the USA Today app ever since in was it released on the Palm Pre years ago. It's quick, intuitive and has a refreshingly fun user interface. The USA Today app is available for Android, iPhone, Windows, and Blackberry. The app is free which is another bonus.

The USA Today app is broken down into sections; News, Sports, Life, Money, Tech, Travel & Opinion like most traditional newspapers. Each section has a sub category. For Example, under "News" you will find "Day in Pictures", "Weather", "Snapshot Polls", "Nation", "World" and "Politics". My favorite sub categories are the "Picture" sections. Here you will find beautiful photos of news from around the world, celebrities and awesome places to travel.

The app rarely crashes and swipes nicely with the use of your finger. The app refreshes itself with new content throughout the day. You have the option of allowing push notifications for breakings news, although this will eat some battery life.


  • Get up-to-date news in seconds
  • Easy to use
  • Updates automatically without refreshing the pages


  • Could have less ads
  • Notifications use up some battery life

Final Verdict

USA Today is a great time killer and I recommend for anyone who likes their news on the go.
