Main Interface

The Boston.com News app is a great way for Boston residents to stay abreast of their city’s breaking news and more. This app has a great interface that allows you to navigate through the various sections of the app with ease.

The best podcast apps for iPhone

The main menu has the various sections including Live Blog, News, Submit A Photo, and more along with a cute little weather widget for your reference.

There is a banner for ads across the bottom of the screen throughout the app, which can be a little distracting due to their colorful content but I’ve seen a lot worse on ad-supported apps!

The content of this app not only covers breaking news, but it also provides users with local, national, sports, politics, business, and entertainment news. Photos and videos accompany the news stories where available.
