These convenient news apps range from succinct political platforms to customizable news networks that put viewers in control of the information they are receiving. In today's digital age, more and more traditional media outlets are enhancing convenience in an effort to appeal to younger audiences.

Standouts include niche examples like sports and gaming-focused news apps along with wildlife news platforms that are designed to inform subscribers about animal conservation efforts along the globe.

Digital natives who are interested in more traditional news sources will respond to examples like citizen journalism news apps -- platforms that let regular individuals share breaking news in their location -- along with action-enabling platforms that connect users to advocacy groups or charitable organizations that relate to content they find interesting and important.
