Stay on top of the latest current affairs from around the world with our news reader apps. This free news reader software is often referred to as a new aggregator, or RSS reader. RSS (which stands for Rich Site Summary, or Really Simple Syndication) is a type of web feed which keeps track of several different websites in a single news aggregator. The news aggregator will then automatically check the RSS feed for new content and pass it on, a process called web syndication. Websites usually use RSS feeds to publish frequently updated information, such as news headlines, blogs, or audio and video.
