News Bento from Hubrious.com is a free news reader developed especially for Windows 8. Though there are some news readers already available for Windows 8, News Bento has many unique features such as support for feed tiles, Surface RT support, support for keyboard and touch and more.
Once the program has been installed you’ll see how clear and smooth the interface is, and it is fully optimized for Surface RT. The program, which is updated on a regular basis, can now aggregate several news feeds in a single tile, plus you have the option to roam feed tiles to other systems, a really nice feature. Not all news readers support this, so it’s good to see News Bento with it.
New Bento also has full support for snapping and portrait mode, and the magazine view really makes browsing through the headlines easy. What really makes News Bento effective though is its versatility. Unlike other news reader apps, News Bento supports the use of the keyboard, mouse and touchscreen so you can choose how you want to read the news.
Because the app is designed to support Windows 8 natively, there are no problems with the installation, and you’ll see how easily it helps personalize your news using different news sources. Other useful features on News Bento are its custom source and RSS search, plus the live and secondary tile support is really useful. If you read a lot of news and not satisfied with your current app, then you should try News Bento. It’s free, easy to use and definitely helps when managing the news.
