Almost all of us use our Android smartphones and tablets to consume content. Be it photos, videos or articles, and today, the most popular websites offer their own apps for a better reading experience. However, not all the apps are good, plus if you love reading a lot of different sources, installing all the different apps can eat up a lot of your device’s storage. Well, that’s where the One – Reading Anything in One app (free) comes into play. As the name suggests, the app brings you content from all the different sources in a unified interface. So, if that interests you, here’s our review of the One – Read Anything in One App:
Before we get into the details of the user interface and the experience that the One app offers, let’s talk about its features:
Over 40+ sources to subscribe to for free
One includes more than 40+ sources from different niches that you can subscribe to. News apps bring a lot of info but not everyone is interested in all the niches. Thankfully, the One app brings news from different niche sources like Editor’s Pick, Economy, News, Hindi News, Youth, Entertainment and Lifestyle. Moreover, you can write to the developers to add more sources.
No need to install the sources
Basically, after you start using One, you will no longer need to install a plethora of apps or visit all the websites one by one to check out your favorite sources. This should especially be handy for people who have phones with low storage space.
Along with news, One includes a “Pics” section, which includes “Funny” and “WTF?!” photos from the web. The app includes pictures that are trending on the internet, be it funny, weird, or even NSFW. The good thing is, both the news and pictures section is updated hourly, so the app never goes out of new content.
Features Coming Soon
The One app is still in its infancy and thus, there are many features that the app developers are currently working on, like built-in VPN support, offline reading, download content and more. You can check out their Facebook page to keep a tab on the new features they are working on.
User Interface and Ease of Use
When it comes to the UI and UX of the One app, it offers what it promised and that is, a simplified reading experience. When you first open One, the app asks you to select the sources you’d like to add in your feed. Once done, you will be taken to the home page of the app, where you will find two tabs: News and Pics (beta). The News feed brings you all the latest content from the sources you chose and the Pics tab brings you funny pictures trending on the web. You can also hit the plus button on the top right to add or remove sources.
Well, that pretty much sums up the same. There is no settings page or any other customization option. Yes, it lacks a lot of features and might feel underwhelming to some but if you just want to read articles from your favorite tech websites or sports, the app can bring you a decent reading experience.
