The proliferation of news apps has resulted in an unpleasant experience for many news seekers. Although Twitter has replaced the newspaper for many, it is difficult to find relevant articles for you, which often leads to endless app-hopping.

A new app called 'Birdy' lets you receive relevant news stories -- that are tailored and personalized by you -- in a simple interface. Birdy pulls from all the best Twitter, Reddit and relevant RRS feeds that are set up by each user, making staying informed easier.

Users can pick their favorite sites and the app will automatically track them for you. Although other similar news apps exist, Birdy provides a much more refined and minimalist look. It is easy to become overwhelmed with content, but Birdy makes it easy to pick and choose what's worthy of reading. Stats for Minimalist News Apps Trending: Today & Popular
