The news, the news, the news. If you are a news addict like me, then you might use something like Flipboard or another feed reader to get your news delivered to you on a regular basis. Those are great ways to get the latest updates, However, they are not as silly, entertaining or irreverent as NewsGif!NewsGif is a mobile app that delivers news headlines to your iOS or Android device. It adds a GIF to the headline. Users vote that GIF up or down, suggest new ones, or simply enjoy it. Swipe right to share the headline, swipe left to read the actual article.
