I submitted the following to iTunes tonight as a review of the free Fluent News iPhone app. Fluent News is also available as a mobile-optimized website.
I like Fluent News a lot as a news app. I wish it was integreated with Google Reader so I could share articles I read in Fluent News via Google Reader, but I am not sure if that integration is possible. In addition to Google Reader I now use Fluent News, the NPR iPhone app, and the CNN iPhone app to read news. Of the non-Google Reader based news apps I have tried on the iPhone, I like Fluent News the best. I like the fact that it pulls articles from multiple sources, and it has a very clean presentation. Great especially for a free app.

I agree 100%. Your Applist wiki caused Fluent to make it to my home screen.
Good post, I’m trying it now. Have you tried the USA Today app for iPhone? Good for quick news reads through the day. BTW, I have compared the NPR app to the NPR Addict app and even though it’s a close race, I think the NPR Addict app is a little smoother and easier to work with.
