Download This: “GameFans” is a curated news feed for gamers


Gaming websites are some of the oldest “news blogs” on the internet, and new ones are popping up every day. A trailer for an upcoming game can be released and 50 different sites will have a story about it within minutes. If you read a lot of gaming sites, you’re bombarded with duplicate content all day. The original stories can get buried. What if there was an app that cut through all the noise for you?

GameFans – News for Gamers is similar to our EarlyBird app. A team of experts is sifting through the news and hand-picking only the best stories. You’ll never see duplicate stories and you will always get the original source. Titles are stripped of any sensationalism and buzzwords so you can cut straight to the point. Each story has a brief description and a comment section. Topics covered by GameFans include:

  • Nintendo
  • Playstation
  • Xbox
  • Virtual Reality
  • PC Gaming
  • Mobile gaming (Android, iOS, etc…)

GameFans also relies on users like you to rank the news stories. When you open the app, a Breaking News ticker will show up in the top right corner. Breaking News stories are displayed in cards that can be voted on in a Tinder-like manner. You can swipe up/right to “like” a story, or swipe down/left to skip it. Tap on a card to read more about it, leave a comment, and find the appropriate links. To vote on articles you only need a Google account.

If you’re a gamer, the GameFans app is perfect for keeping up with the news. Real people are doing all the work for you, which means you can just sit back and swipe through the news. It’s very well designed, intuitive, and sort of addictive. The app is free to download and requires a free account to use. Give GameFans a try and ditch the old RSS feed reader.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.
