All-new Breaking News app for Android
We’re excited to announce a brand new version of our free Android app that lets you decide what’s breaking news to you.
Android users join iOS users in being able to control the news they see with a few quick taps of the screen.

When you open the app, you’ll see a real-time feed of everything by default.

ALERT - Tap the alarm bell above an item to get real-time push notifications whenever news breaks about that specific topic. With custom alerts, you don’t even need to open the app. Just glance at your phone and you’re up to date.

MUTE - Hide stories you don’t want to see updates on. You can mute topics that annoy you (Justin Bieber, anyone?) and also things you don’t want spoiled - just in time for the Olympics!

WHOA! - Not all news is like-worthy, so we’ve created something new. Tap the “Whoa!” button to register your surprise to a breaking update. You can also alert your friends on social media, email or SMS. As you “Whoa!” updates in real-time, you help power a list of the most surprising stories, photos and videos at the bottom of the feed.
We’ve reinvented Breaking News around you. If you have questions or feedback, we’d love to hear from you: send us a tweet to @breaking, email us at support@breakingnews.com or drop us a note via BreakingNews.com.
And please check out our launch video, starring Arthur Roberts.

For those of you sporting iPhone 5s, we’ve just rolled out an updated Breaking News app (iTunes) optimized for the larger screen.  The app runs even faster on the new iOS 6.
We’ve also added new ways to share or bookmark an update: Linkedin, Pocket, Readability and Diigo have been added to Twitter, Facebook, email and SMS.  Plus, push notifications now open the individual update, making it easier to jump to the original story (which was a popular user request.)
Let us know what you think, and more features are on the way!
