    I just wanted to see what news apps you all like the best. I have been trying to narrow these down to two or so, but I have having a difficult time selecting which two. I wish I could take bits and pieces from each one. I am currently leaning towards keeping USA Today and The Daily Beast.

    I currently have:

    USA Today
    Pulse
    Weave
    WSJ Live
    The Daily Beast
    Time Mobile

    I also have WP7 News, Engadget, and WP Central, but I want to keep those as separate apps.

    Any input, thoughs what and whys are welcome.

    I'm waiting for an official BBC News app but currently I just use their metro styled mobile site. I'm not sure of the layout (or content) of the international one is (its certainly unbiased) but the UK is typically the best source for news.

    The best way that I have found to get news on WP is to follow several news sources that you're interested in on Twitter. You'll get headlines fed to you all day long via "What's new" in the People Hub.

    I don't use any of those. I get my news by subscribing to feeds from Google Reader, and I have the Reader2Go app on my L900.

    Thanks for the idea, but I don't use twitter or facebook. I have read a few twitter posts from news stories or online before and sometimes they are difficult to understand what they are saying. :)

    Yeah, I dont think I like aggeragators either. It's nice to see different stories from numerous sources, but I don't like that the entire article/story does not load. I have to click on the "read more" or similar button to get the rest of the article.

    Thanks scottcraft...I didn't realize News 360 was on WP, and I was not aware of AP Mobile, now you have added two more I have to try out.

    Use the 'unofficial' BBC News Mobile app. Live tile, notifications and shows all the feeds I need.

    Exactly what I do. I keep a few of them pinned to the start screen, as well.

    BBC News, WP Central, Engadget, and Weave, although Weave is usually left in the dark (not pinned) due to the absent live tile...
