How I Use It
I use it as a teacher to keep updated on news, especially for technology, education and apps. This could be used as a classroom app for current events. One of my favorite parts is the Technology section and the Apps section. The Apps section keeps me updated on apps news and use and the best part-the free apps for the day. I have got some great apps for free! Colleagues and I often share articles and help keep each other updated. Students could use this to follow particular topics for the latest news. I don't know if there is a filter to avoid inappropriate material for students. I love the technology and education sections and find myself so much more informed. Definitely my favorite news app.
My Take
It is a great app for getting news. I love that I can customize it to get the stories I am interested in and mark the items I want to read later. I can also send the article to others quickly. Just like it's name, just flip through pages and stories quickly. I love the choices and I can easily get updated on the information important to me. I don't always have time to watch the news or read articles, but this app is my go-to when I need a quick flip to the latest news and allows me to get caught up on the important information. This could be a good and quick way for students to follow particular fields or topics of information. I use this app mostly for myself in the filed of education.
