Not a news junkie but want to sound like one? Yahoo News Digest is now available for Android devices
The app offers twice a day summaries of the top 8 to 12 stories, designed to give you the information you need to understand what is going on. Today, the Android version of Yahoo News Digest was launched on the Google Play Store, and now Android users can receive summaries of the day's top events at 8am and 6pm every day. Over time, the app remembers the stories you're more interested in, and focuses on the news coming from those categories.
If you're the type of person who needs to have CNN on the television while perusing the AP, Reuters and CNN apps on the phone, give a wide berth to Yahoo News Digest. On the other hand, if you want to know just enough of the news to be able to contribute to conversations without sounding ignorant, Yahoo News Digest might be your best bet. And now, both iOS and Android users can download and install it on their devices. In addition, Yahoo is adding an International version of the app, along with one for Canadian users.

Except being a data and resource hog and no widget. Its a not-so-well-implemented google service.

ummmmm......I have the newstand widget on my homescreen right now.
Also, it works flawlessly with my Moto G without consuming much resources, unless by resource u mean data ?

Umm... wait sorry! my bad, apparently the nova launcher on my nexus 7 was not showing the widget. Restarted it now. But you see its not as cool as flipboard. Also i'm not wrong about the resources part. Flipboard takes a lot less ram and internet data based on my observations. Its faster too. Anyway.

It meets my needs perfectly. It sorts news that I care about into categories I define... It actually does consume the most data out of all other apps on my phone, but it's still only 40MB a week, and I'm unable to get anywhere near 2GBs in a month, even if I tried. Yahoo on the other hand, even though I’m logged in on their site, I still get all sorts of “crap” celebrity gossip articles in my feed even though I couldn’t care less about who’s wearing what or sleeping with who. I’m definitely not reading any of those articles and I’m the exclusive user on my computer so it’s not like it’s tracking other people’s activity.
