Welcome to our biggest update to Circa News *by far*. We've been super hard at work on it for quite a while and are excited to release it to you! If you have any thoughts, suggestions, or questions feel free to get ahold of us at [email protected] ! Now, on to the good stuff!

Introducing Wire
• We're so stoked about this feature. Wire is a new area of the app that consists of two things: a personalized Daily Brief from our editorial staff, and updates to stories that you may already be following.
• Now we make your followed updates super easy to read quickly by putting everything you haven't seen yet into a single fast-reading page.

Dynamic Daily Brief
• The President of the United States doesn’t need to read the news, he’s briefed on only the things that demand his attention. We figured why shouldn't everyone have that? Our editors will carefully curate the most meaningful stories of the day so you can have a Daily Brief delivered at a time that you choose!

• By far the most requested feature since we launched nearly two years ago and it's finally here! Search for stories that matter to you and give them a follow.

Customize topics
• You can now customize your main screen and Wire to only see the things you care most about – turn on or off any topic you'd like!

Filter Breaking News Alerts
• Don't want to see a sports-related breaking news alert? Just turn it off! We've made it really easy for you to tell us what news you want alerts about.

Android Wear Support
• Get Breaking News notifications and story updates delivered directly to your Android Wear device!

New sounds!
• We've teamed up again with Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer BT (, to produce a high quality suite of sounds that would fit perfectly with our new experience.
The latest Tweets from BT (@BT). Grammy Nominated Composer & Technologist. I am a man that believes sound can change the world. I seek, I learn. Bookings: [email protected] On a shining blue dot

LG G3 Running Lollipop Love Circa News! The Dragnet of news app's (Just the facts ma'am! ) It's great to be able to get quick concise news stories on topics I want. Great widget! Plus more in depth if I choose so by following the stories I'm interested in. Thank you and keep up the good work! Runs great on my G3!

Circa Briefs I really like Circa for providing me with great variety of news. However, I have recently seen a problem with the briefs not appearing on the app even though there was a notice saying updates are ready to be read. Hope it gets fixed. The app also has not been at its best lately; it loads very slowly. The updates of a favorite news took too long; the articles were not ready to be read right away.

What Real News Looks Like!!! 13May2015: An update had broken things, but now fixed w new update... Like new again! ::::With the left, right, middle, and extreme opinions peddled in news networks these days, I found Circa to be the antidote. It literally says what was said/done, adding NOTHING else. Usually in 1-4 sentences without spin or opinion... You know... What we use to call objective NEWS!

Nick Blake

Only for u.s It looks great but can't find any regional settings so useless for u.k

Maura O'Neill

Great Works great now since the Wire is fixed.

Matt Hardin

Please fix bug Got this orginally on iphone. Glad you guys made this for android ? whenever I look at the updates it doesn't update that I look at them and when I reach the bottom it doesn't give me the check that I read them. I have to refresh page again to get it to work. Please fix this

Olivier Lamboray

Easy and effecient

Ian Elletson

Loved it, new update has major issues It often takes a minute or more to open circa to my daily wire on my nexus 5. Pictures don't display properly or at all in some cases. There is some ui overlap. The news is still good but it's hard to recommend in its current state. If the app is fixed the review will be updated.

Akeeb Hanif

Brilliant *Such a great app, breaks the news down perfectly. Maybe allow us to search for stories or at least sections like the UK, Middle East etc; would make it complete* - 18/03/14 They actually listened; I'm absolutely loving this app, such great depth. 5 STARS

Connor Pratt

Quality news, atrocious performance I'm disappointed in the amount of time it takes to load, specifically the Wire section which has taken up to 2 minutes to load. Articles consistently take 30 seconds to a minute to load even on a decent connection. Notifications for updates tend to show up, but when I go to the app, the updates are nowhere to be seen.

Nabil Lothae

Update cause issues with stories The app is amazing and the way the stories are presented to you is very clean and user friendly. This last update has cause problems with my daily stories however. It says I have some and then I open the app and it says I've read them all, and it shows no history of any stories I've just "read" This is one of the major features that really needs to be fixed. Besides that great news app.

Sumit Gouthaman

Wire no longer works Every morning I get a notification saying my Daily Wire is available for reading. When I open it takes forever to load and directly tells me I've finished reading the wire without giving any way to actually read it.

Jim Carter

Update After A Long Absence I'm returning to Circa after a lengthy absence. The strong points: (1.) The ability to get a quick read of the most important news stories (2.) The option to follow selected stories, which is unique. My negatives: (1.) Low quality images (2.) Inability to select text. I like to sometimes highlight words to share to my dictionary app.

Graham Pearce

Was a fantastic app, now broken I loved this until a recent update broke the daily "wire" functionality. Now, when I open it from the daily notification, it waits for a few seconds of loading and then says "congratulations, you've finished your wire!" without showing any stories.


I love Circa. Simple, efficient. But sad to see the last update ditched what was a nice, clean and better design just to fit into the new Android guidelines. The UI is now confusing and a tad ugly.

Nicholas Hansen

Great for snapshots of the news I often don't have time to check the news, but this app finally let's me. Plus they summarize the stories down to the key points and get rid of all the fluff. Would definitely recommend.

Meir Snyder

New Update hurts UI One of the reasons I read Circa everyday was the enjoyable UI. I really liked the stories in rows with the picture overlay. I'm really unhappy with the new design, it feels like you've stripped out what made circa worthwhile

Matt Hagner

Circa News is a great looking news app, that offers a unique experience. Instead of long dry articles, news is offered up in bite sized blurbs that are easy to understand and quick to read. The only thing that I think could improve this app is having a wider variety of content.

Dan Franzen

A Great Has Been In the past this app had a great clear and fast interface. But with each update it becomes harder to use, slower, and includes frequent crashes.

Jens Waage

Quick and to the point news updates Great news source for quickly getting up to date on recent important events. News stories are formatted in a clear and consistent manner, focusing on the facts, which makes it easy to quickly get up to speed on the development of the story. At the same time, it also offers more in depth analysis of ongoing stories if wanted. Very much recommended.

Sam D.

New update is terrible The newest update has slowed down the app to unreasonable levels and made it excessively clunky.

Adam Khan

Best news app ever Beautifully crafted and easy to use, Circa news app provides you with great news coverage of all events. Absolutely would recommend you download and give it a shot!

Randy Pargman

News content is still great, but the problems with this latest update (3.1.1) make circa almost unusable. It used to be fast, now every time I tap a story to read, the screen becomes unresponsive for a few seconds, then the whole screen goes black hit a few seconds and sometimes circa crashes after that. Terrible!

Oliver Ting

Well done Great app for getting the important news and none of the useless trivial stories on other newspaper websites. Like that updates continue for stories, when other sites would drop them as they're no longer headliners. The new interface is pretty slick, good job.

Christopher Arrington

User friendly & very informative I have now found what I have been looking for in a news app. I love how simple it is to follow or unfollow a story and love hearing that notification sound every morning when my daily brief is ready, keep up the good work developers!

Terrance DeCiel

love the app, hate the issues Pages break or turn black, content won't load and app freezes....fix please or I'll need to seek another app

Kian Duffy

Why? Previously gave it 5 stars but the latest update really defeats the purpose of having Circa. Now its just a stupid news app with a not - at - all unique interface. No more snap scroll?! The new wire is also very irritating and pointless. Please go back to old design!!

William Aung Leyraud

Got back one more star... 3 more to go. Huge improvement on UI design compared to previous version (reason of getting one star back), still, majority of articles are only about politics or world. It would be great to get more diversified articles in every topic. I'll be looking forward to see how this app goes, hopefully it will get back to be the great app it used to be.


Love app, not latest update. I have to wait for a long time to read my stories now. The lag gets to be so long I'm warned that the app appears to have stopped responding by my phone. It's not my connection because streaming and other intensive apps work well still. Would love a fix and will be five stars then.


Used to be 5 stars Love(d) this app, but the functionality declines with each interface change. Pages load slowly, if at all, it gets stuck and you can't navigate without fully closing out, frequent crashes, etc. Have to say, I'm becoming more and more disappointed with each "update". Maybe try not fixing what's not broken.

Brandon Price

Great app! News doesn't return to selected category after viewing an article, shows main page news but the selected category is still shows in the upper left

Raul Pereira

Circa is an amazing app that gives you just the essential to make you aware of what's happening on this Earth of ours. The last version (3.0.0) fixes pretty much everything that was not so good in past versions. I'd say that the new design is not perfect and needs some work in the future, but it's not terrible. I'll maintain the overall 5* nevertheless. UPDATE: As of v. 3.1.1 everything was fixed with the introduction of a completely new design based on Material guidelines.

Tony Spagnoli

Much Improved The last update worked poorly and was visually bland. The new version looks great and runs smoothly and quickly. Thanks for the great app!

Paul Chambers

By far, favorite news app I installed on 11/5/2014. I use this app everyday. The daily brief is my favorite feature. This is my go to news app. The curated news quality is excellent! Way to go Circa!

Dustin Wyatt

You can read news in it. It takes 30 seconds or more to load some screens like the Wire with nothing to look at but a white screen with a spinner.

Grey Kingsley

I like reading news like this Update fixed issues. Let's see if it still works tomorrow!

Frank Valerio

The Best News Source Around The new redesign looks incredible. Highly recommended and essential app for anyone that takes their news in an unbiased way. Part of my everyday life. Make it part of yours.

Joe Faso

All around ok! Bad first, loooong load times. Like seriously, sometimes I think is frozen. Good stuff, layout is ok. I like the content, it's relevant and up to date. Like how you can follow stories for future updates and it gives you notifications so you don't have to scroll through all your followed stories everyday looking for updates.

Юра Палайда

Brilliant app Great design, short articles and all important news in one. I like it

Илья Ильметов

New design of the front page looks amazing and feels snappy both on the phone and on the tablet. Great work, guys, thanks for the awesome app!

Jonathan Mahoney

Pretty cool app It's a unique way to follow the news. It's cool to find out the being news instantaneously! :-) It's amazing how fast it is.

Dmitry Golub

Good way to stay updated

Elvis Obanya

Sgs 3 Links from email top storylines don't work in app

Yaroslav Antonenko

Magnificent A top notch app that I was looking for for ages. I really hope that it will cover more topics and bring more news in general soon, otherwise its perfect
