Have you ever been into a newsagent and just read the newspapers until they throw you out for not buying anything? Whaddya mean no? You haven't lived until you've been there. Anyway, headslinger let's you read all the most interesting articles from all the most interesting news sources and all from the comfort of your own home. And you'll never get kicked out for doing it.
headslinger is a news sharing and social application that allows you to create a custom news list by news source. Whats more, it allows you to categorize your news by folder.The way we access our news has changed radically just in the last few years. Whereas in the past most people got their news information from the daily paper or the nightly news on TV this century has seen more people working antisocial hours and turning to online sources to find out what is going on out there. Added to that is the frustration of only getting 'headline grabbing' news on most of the commercial news outlets. headslinger changes all that by giving the viewer unlimited access to hundreds of news channels and it's unique algorithm will also suggest alternate news sources based on your news consumption habits. You can also see just what everyone else is reading too.
For an avid news junkie like myself headslinger is whats known as a blinder. Every news channel from CNN and BBC to more localized channels from smaller publications and heaps of overseas sources. There are great blogs from the likes of Tosh 2.0, sports stuff from ESPN and suchlike, music sources like Spin and Rolling Stone...the list is endless. It's pure bliss and is all free. headslinger is good to look at and easy to navigate. Seriously folks, it's just one of those essential apps if you really want to find out what's really going on out there. You can even suggest publications you'd like to see added. Now, where's that Esquire I was reading...for the stories, of course.
