If you want to know the latest gossip, news, and factoids about your favorite artist, supermodel, celebrity, athlete, or even TV show host, then UK Guilty Pleasures is a must-have on your iPhone or iPad.
What we have here is an amalgamation of the information available across the top gossip websites as well as blogs available to mankind, put together in a beautiful way so as to help the user consolidate information quickly in one place.
This app can be downloaded completely free of charge from the News section of the App Store, and it'll only take up 15.1 MB of space on your iOS device. Let's take a look at the features of this app.
UK Guilty Pleasures features a very intuitive interface which requires little learning. Upon launching, you'll be taken to the main screen where you can check out the latest gossip sorted by chronological order.
Each of the stories has the date of publishing and an excerpt of about 30 to 40 words that allows the user to understand what the story is all about. I love that there is so much information on the main page so the users know which stories they wish to or don't wish to read.
There are five icons at the bottom of the main page which facilitate navigation between the various sections including Home, Categories, Radio, Favorites, and More. You can also use the Search button on the top right to look for news items by keyword, or use the Other icon to get Weather, Exchange Rate, and other options.
This app is updated three times a day from the various news sources available on the web. When you go to any news article that interests you, you will have plenty of options to choose from. The user experience is powered by Readability and font sizes can easily be changed to suit your preferences.
There is an action button which can be used to share the article on social media networks including Facebook, Twitter, and email. Users can tap on the “read later” icon on each of the articles for offline viewing, or even use the action button to retrieve the URL of the article if they wish to share it via other means.
Other features include quote of the day, horoscope, various UK radio stations, and the ability to check out the sources from which the information within the app has been compiled.
