THE ONLY NEWS APP YOU NEED 
With News Suite, you no longer have to visit multiple sites and apps to stay in the know. It organises articles from 1000s of feeds into two tabs so it’s easy to find what’s relevant to you. The “News” tab keeps you up to date on a wide range of current affairs, while the “My Feeds” tab brings you articles customised to your personal interests. We’ve partnered with the world’s most popular publications so there’s always new, quality content to engage you.

YOUR NEWS, TWO WAYS
-With our unique two-tab design, you can switch between the news you want and the news you need with the tap of a finger.
-The “News” tab is where you can read up on a wide range of organised genres such as: General News, Entertainment, Sports, Food and more. 
-The “My Feeds” tab is where we bring you a personalised array of content based on your favourite topics.

CUSTOMISABLE 
Customising your “My Feeds” tab is simple. Just choose topics from the list or use our popular “Keyword Register” to enter the names of things like your favourite celebrities, companies, brands and where you live––we’ll give you all the latest news on them, in chronological order. 

KNOW NOW
-When you enable push notifications you’ll receive important news stories as soon as they develop. 
-With our ”Scheduled News” feature, you can customise push notifications for certain topics to appear periodically.

SAVE AND SHARE
You can save articles to your bookmarks list to read later. Plus, we make it easy to share your favourite stories with friends on Facebook and Twitter.

-Tips for Use- 
■ How to Read News from Your Own Country ■
By default, the region setting of your "News" tab is taken from the language and region settings of your device. For example, if your device’s language is set to “English (United States),” then news from the U.S. will be displayed. If you are unable to read news from the region you are staying in, you can use the method below to change the region setting.
* Please note this resets the app to its initial state, deleting all feeds and bookmarks which have been registered.
1. Choose "Menu">"Setting">"Other options">"Initialization"
* This will delete feeds and bookmarks which have been registered.
2. Restart News Suite
3. Select the link for "Terms of service" from the starting screen
4. Choose the region you stay in under "Select your language/region"
■ Setting Up Push Notifications ■
Users can receive periodic updates via push notifications with "Scheduled News," as well as push notifications for important news articles with "Additional feeds and other info of interest"
You can turn notifications on or off, and set timings, by selecting "Settings," followed by "Notifications," from the upper right menu.
■ For Xperia Users Wishing to Uninstall the App ■
If you wish to uninstall the app from your Xperia device, you may or may not be able to do so depending on your device's model. In such cases, you can go to "Settings," followed by "Apps," and then select "Disable."

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

install shortcuts
Allows an application to add Homescreen shortcuts without user intervention.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

  1. Jonathan King-avatar

    I personally do not like this App. Every article you click on is nothing but unnecessary click bait. To read any article you always have to click next and next etc again. Why can't these articles actually be read in their entirety. Come on get rid of the click bait next format. It is frustrating, annoying and makes my blood boil.

  2. Abhishek Singh-avatar

    2 star less because news opening animation transition hangs. In other words, animation which displays while opening news is delayed by 1 second. Please solve this issue Sony teams.

    This is pretty much the only news app I use to get the news I want and need. I'm happy with it. I really like the "read later" feature

  4. Gordon Powell-avatar

    It's a cool app, that can be customised to your taste in news, their are no shortage of options, making the app as versatile & interesting as the user wants it to be, picking from numourus, interests broadening the experience while still keeping the interest personised, it does come with adds but overall this didn't detract from the news or interest based environment, fair app if your into interest based news

  5. Bill-avatar

    It's comprehensive & very responsive, but there are some areas need improved: it seems to be littered with taboola ad links, certain news sections don't seem to update (or take several days for any new articles to come through), move the 'Read Later' link to within the opened article & replace it with a time when the news article was published (so we can see new recent stories coming in on refresh).

  6. Jarod M-avatar

    Informative & Updated News notifications are essential nowadays and this app does just that. If you need to be updated daily on the world around you and things that specifically interest you then , this app is meant for you. No CAP! Also , go follow @southside_only on Instagram for the culture 🙏. Peace & Blessings

  7. Ross Wimberley-avatar

    Being well informed with up to date news is an important part of my life, I discover a wide range of new interesting articles with this convenient App that I may have missed. Finding out stuff through E-News is a very quick and handy way to keep up to date with the latest news in our much happening World and 🌌 Universe. My rating for this App is at least 4. 5 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 ✨. Many thanks to Sony's ingenuity and all of those good fellow researchers out there... Adios from Ross W.

  8. Ben Spencer-avatar

    Useful view of different newspaper articles. As well as an interesting overview of what has happened over recent time.

    Works well, happy with this app, would recommend.. The only problem I have is that there is no search bar so you can't search for headlines..

  11. Hugo Mouden-avatar

    Not ergonomic at all, sensationalist news and not essential, not customizable, too many sponsored articles. I usually love Sony interface and software but this app really is one of the worst news app I ever used.

  12. David Arundel-avatar

    Hides email behind MMS, which costs real money to contact. No amused. Would have given more stars, were it not for the subterfuge.

  13. Max Tweedie-avatar

    Not great, I'm afraid. It's a bit like having a like farm news aggregator embedded in your phone. Sony stuff is usually slicker than this.

  14. Marnie R-avatar

    While I appreciate the convenience of this news feed I wish I had the option to remove or add certain news outlets. I want less Fox News and more BBC.

  16. Graeme F-avatar

    Another programme from Sony that interferes with other apps. It is constantly updating.

  17. Vigo Vigomand-avatar

    ok ide, ok design, but just too many ads everywhere. Really irritating, and no payed ad-free version offered.

    For a time now it has only been fox news stories. Fix this.

  30. A Google user-avatar

    UK user, a good app I just wish you would remove The Mirror from the feed because they thrive on spreading false rumour.

  40. José Salgado-avatar

    This App brings you an excellent way of learning about the things that are happening in the world, be it from a quick read in the push notifications on your phone or entering the App to read more about a specific newsletter. The ability of the App to have a personalized news tabs are great too, because you can keep in touch with the news that interests you the most.

  41. Peter Chapa-avatar

    App has lots of sneakily placed ads. A lot of celebrity type articles compared to other news apps, also seems to have short articles targeted towards shorter attention spans. Mostly US- centric articles without any local content for my region (Canada) but somehow is able to have ads for businesses in my region. On the plus side doesn't crash much

  42. Edina Monsoon-avatar

    The app is easy to use and provides a variety of news source information. The downside: Too many articles are not "current" and show up in the feed a day or so after the story was released.

  43. Ndawyn-avatar

    It only shows news from UK and im not interested with it!!!

  44. Tommie Nichols-avatar

    My favorite news app all information is here.

    Lastest version is full of Sponsors with Fake News and Fake Offers this has become a vile application it used to be the very best such a shame that the development decided to exploit the users I have now disabled it

  61. Ainal Saidin-avatar

    Used to be good. Now can't customize news sources and now News feed is full of Fox news propoganda, which only happened recently

  76. Pal Jatinder-avatar

    This is a good aap for international news. It's gives glimpse of news from every subject. I give my words of thanks to sony. But here is one thing that I want to say it doesn't cover indian subcontinent.

  90. Paul Anderson-avatar

    Love this app very infomative

  91. Cameron Benest-avatar

    It provides a lot of news articles to read, but doesn't appear to have the ability to remove specific news sources. So feeds may have stories from trash news writers which have become popular but have no bones to back it up. If you could block providers like you can on Google News then it'd be perfect.

  92. Ben Monson-avatar

    Entertainment, not news and riddled with ads

  93. Mark Whiteman-avatar

    Fantastic up-to-date news from around the world

  94. John Peat-avatar

    Far too many trivial items about so-called celebrities and relationships, likewise too many personal opinions lifted from a certain newspaper.

  99. Matthew-avatar

    This app use to be fantastic. Now it's so flooded with advertising that half the screen is covered or some ads don't load properly. It even overloads itself and ads make it stop working and the app closes. Poor form from developers here. Definitely needs to be fixed.
