Fluent News vs ZenNews

Posted by KL Tech Muse at 9:55 PM on November 8, 2009

Finding a good news application was one of the first things I looked for on the Iphone. Fluent News and ZenNews are the two that I have tried, the following chart compares the two

As the chart shows, there are a couple of differences between the two. First Fluent News allows you to share easily with Twitter, Facebook and by Email, while Zennews only shares with Twitter and by Email. Zennews does have time stamps on the post, while Fluent News does not, in the era of real time time stamps are important in my opinion. The Zennew’s hot topic bubbles are a good way to see what is hot, with Fluent News you have to go under categories then at the bottom of the page are the most popular news post. The last thing is Zennews lets you control the sources that the news is coming from, Fluent news doesn’t even list their sources. Whether you like one or the other is a matter of personal preference. Both applications are free, so I would download both of them and try them out, there is nothing to loose
