This bureau is a fan of RSS feeds. They are exactly what you want and nothing more for your news needs.
Popular RSS feeds app, Reeder has recently released version 5.
The feature that appeals most is integration with iCloud Read Later. Those articles that were marked to read later and have been forgotten about? They can be found in Reeder.
This app also has good integration across platforms although it can be a bit slow in syncing while others prefer the look and feel of Unread.
Useful for getting things read, it can be worthwhile to turn a new page and try Reeder.
