Big News blends your newsletters and feeds together into one super-smart reading experience.

- Combine newsletters and RSS feeds together
- Get your very own email address
- Sort stories by the day's biggest news
- Enjoy a beautiful fullscreen, distraction-free reading experience
- Realtime push notifications from your favourite channels
- Add the news to your home screen with our Widgets
- Search hundreds of thousands of stories in a snap

One place for your newsletters and feeds:
Big News combines different sources from across the web – like newsletters and RSS feeds – into one unified reading experience. So it doesn't matter what you're reading, or where it's from, you can find it all in Big News.

An email address just for newsletters:
With your very own email address, newsletters skip your regular inbox and instead are sent directly to Big News. That means less stuff mixed in with your daily emails and more great reads for when you want them.

Not just another inbox:
We didn't want to create another list of things in an inbox to be managed. That's why Big News uses dozens of signals to intelligently prioritise the stories that matter to you today, all in one inviting layout. There's no endless pile of unread badges or month-old news. Just the Big News, today.

Sources you already know and trust:
Add your existing newsletters and feeds to Big News in just a few taps. Plus, the Big News directory contains hundreds of channels, so you're sure to find the sites and newsletters you already love – as well as discover something altogether new.

We built Big News upon the open standards of the web – like RSS and SMTP – so it already works with thousands of sources today, as well as thousands more in the future.

And now for the legal bits:
Payment will be charged on either a monthly or annual basis to your Apple ID account. Your monthly or annual subscription automatically renews unless you cancel before the end of the current billing period. You can manage and cancel your subscription at any time by going to your account settings on the App Store after purchase. For our full Terms of Service please visit: For our Privacy Policy visit

What’s New

Version 1.2

NEW: Open stories directly in Safari reader mode. Head over to App Settings to set your preference.
NEW: Notifications are now grouped by Channels, making it even easier to see the latest stories from your favourite sources
NEW: Discover new Channels to follow with the "For You" section in the Directory

We've also renamed "Sent to You" to simply "Newsletters" (don't worry, it works exactly the same as before).

And as usual we've fixed some bugs and polished up a few things here and there. 

We hope you enjoy this release of Big News!

Excellent News Curation App!

The design Is top notch and the feel is buttery smooth navigating between articles. The use of cards is a welcome change from lists and really lets you focus on a single headline at a time.

Highly recommend this app!

Just what I’ve been looking for!

This app gives a great summary of the news from the sites you choose to follow! It’s easy to use, has a great UI, and also doesn’t encourage doom scrolling. Highly recommend
