News Pro allows you to extend the scope of your daily news updates by suggesting new topics to search based off your current interests and by helping you discover websites where you can read articles that are interesting to you. You can also search for news related to any topic right in the app so you can always be fully informed. This News Pro app is now available for Android devices.

News Pro 3.0 helps you search for hyper-relevant and in-depth news around your work and life every day.
