The Sony News Suite allows users to select the news media they're interested in and customize how it's acquired, just as before, but the app also boasts the new feature of genre-based news pages.
The User Interface has also been rebooted with a new two-tab system -- the "News" tab features general news from around the world organized by genre, and the "My Feeds" tab gathers together news and blog posts that users are interested in -- allowing general and personalized news to be viewed separately.
Users can efficiently and quickly get to grips with news on a wide scale, and the personalized news they want to read up on in more depth is just a tab away.
The two-tab system allows for the clear and separate organization of general and personalized news
Users can view news articles organized by such genres as Entertainment, Sports, Business, Food, and Technology to get an instant grasp on what's happening in the world, as it happens. Catch up on fresh and recent news with high-speed vertical scrolling. Flick to the left or right to easily switch genres with just one hand.
The "My Feeds" tab lets you gather and enjoy all the news you care about. To customize, select from the news catalog (RSS list) or simply input keywords such as the names of your favorite teams or movie stars. A variety of articles will be retrieved and accumulated for a single keyword, allowing you to see developments for that keyword over time.
The Sony News Suite app also allows you to check the weather in your city.
News Suite (formerly Socialife News) is presently installed on a total of 40 million devices across 70 countries, and is well used by 6 million users a month.
Sony News Suite app is compatible with smartphones running Android 4.1 or above.
