Finding the latest news has never been easier thanks to smartphones. Whether you just want curated content or need to follow your favorite RSS feeds, there are hundreds of apps out there that make these things possible. Google's own Play Newsstand app has been around for some time, and while it's always been perfectly fine, it's never been exceptionally good. However, in the recent 4.0 update that Google released for it, that could be changing for the better.
Upon first opening the app in the new update, you'll be welcomed with your very own greeting screen that will showcase the current weather in your geographical area and a section that is titled "Briefing." The weather can be expanded to view the weather for the next 5-days in your area, and Briefing will show you the top 5 stories for the day and additional news highlights as per your personal interests.
