Choose what’s interesting in the newsreader

By clicking on the newspaper icon in the left panel on your homepage, you will open a dialogue field. It will ask you which news sources you would like to get news from. Select the ones that interest you or get more options.

Add more sources to the personalized newsreader

When opening the newsreader, click on Add sources and choose more news from 14 different fields such as entertainment, technology, travel, news and more. You can also adjust your previous choices of news and delete sources you chose before.

What we really like about the personalized newsreader is that you can also add news sources from different countries. This way you can get information from the places that you are most interested in. πŸ™‚

Top 50 news all in one spot

Click β€œTop 50” in the newsreader side panel to get access to top news picks for a selected country. The β€œTop 50” is separate from your personal feed, but you can easily add sources you like from it to your feed. πŸ™‚

    I really like it. Is there a way we can try and submit more sources for the future? I’m ok with the offer but I like to include others, so a submit system would be nice. Or just simply letting us add what we want (I know that is difficult).

    • Rosi Opera

      Hi Javier:) We are open to all suggestions so if you have any I’m more then happy to pass them on to the team πŸ™‚ Loving the idea of adding your own sources as well. I will pass it on as a feature request. /Rosi

    Are you planning on adding Arabic sources?

  • lorefnon

    Is there a way to subscribe to an RSS feed through the news reader ?

    • Mohamed Bekhit

      Yes you can, click on add source and in the Search catalog field paste in the rss link

  • Douglas Brown

    I understand how to choose any of the fourteen different fields I want, however, I cannot find how to choose sources for news feeds, for example. So, rather than having news feeds from liberal websites like huffingtonpost, it sounds like I should be able to choose RSS feeds from whatever I wish in order to remove the liberal bias you currently have with the sources chosen by default. In the video it shows a page that has a heading of ‘My Sources’. One of the choices is ‘Add source’. however, I cannot get to that page. Can you help?
