Video games are getting bigger and bigger by the year; not only on Android but also on countless other platforms. The best video game news apps for Android will help you keep up with the changes, the latest releases, and, of course, the controversies of the gaming world without having to navigate dozens of different websites and YouTube channels. And, if you’re a fan of a certain platform, they will help that you follow that particular platform with ease as well.
I follow video games religiously, especially during the E3 week to find out about any new games announced at the Expo. Of course I love to play them, but they are also one of my major sources of income, so following them is part of my job as well. However, with multiple games being announced and different expansions coming out all the time, it is quite hectic to follow everything.
Thanks to a couple of great and easy to access videogame news apps for Android, I not only get updated with everything that’s happening around the gaming world but also the details right at the front. I’m sure that you’ll find these apps fast, easy to access, and fun to use than browsing different websites on your Android smartphone.
Note: the best videogame news apps for Android were tested on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Sony Xperia Z smartphones, the apps worked perfectly fine and no problems were faced during the testing. All of the apps will need an active Internet connection in order to display updated content.
Appy Gamer – Games news
Appy Gamer is without a doubt the number one videogame news app for Android, and there is good reason for it. The app started back when there were no other videogame news apps available on the Google Play Store and I’ve been using it since 2012. One great thing about this app is that it allows you to personalize hundreds of new sources in a sleek, simple, and optimized interface. It makes it easy to read about video games on the go, whether you are browsing reviews for latest games or simply checking out release dates, and everything is highly accessible.
I really like the idea of personal news that keep track of your activities and what you like to read, then tailors your experience automatically. For example, if you are an Xbox One fan, the app will recognize that and show you more Xbox related articles over time.
Appy Gamer also allows you to read full text, aw well as view photos and videos from trusted websites around the globe. So, if you’re looking for the definitive videogame news app for Android, look no further than this one.Show Downloads
I completely understand that a lot of gamers don’t trust IGN reviews. They are kind of notorious. However, they are the fastest and the widest gaming news network in the world. So, if you want information or game guides about some obscure title, there is a high chance that IGN has covered it in extensive detail.
At this point there are around 50 articles for one major game released on this app. If you want to learn more about Destiny 2 then the app will shower you with multiple different articles about that one game. The content is so detailed that it wouldn’t be a surprise to find articles dedicated to one particular gun in one particular videogame. So, if you crave content about your favorite videogame, then IGN is the place to go.
As for the interface, I found that playing videos on the app is cumbersome and takes a long while to load, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend watching videos. The app is great for reading, though.Show Downloads
Gaming News, Videos & Reviews
Just as the name of the app is precise and to the point, the app itself is extremely fast and targeted towards your personal tastes.
The first thing the app will ask you to do is to make it your own. You’ll be presented with a checklist of different genres and platforms, and all you need to do is simply select the ones that interest you most. For example, if you are a PC gamer and don’t want to see anything exclusively about the PS4 , you can simply uncheck the PlayStation tab and you won’t see anything about the console.
The readability itself is quite easy on the eyes and the app uses a very familiar, Google endorsed tutorial style template that makes it very intuitive and instantly usable.Show Downloads
I Love Gaming – Games news
This is a very new app on the scene, and I’m a big fan of its interface. First of all, the background itself is black so the reading experience is pleasant at bedtime. Second, the app uses material design interface that makes it feel familiar.
There are 3 different sections on the app, the latest section gives the most recent news, and the highlight section allows you to pursue major news on the gaming world. One of the best things that I like about this app is the ability to customize the sources. For example, I don’t really dig reviews from certain outlets and don’t want to read them at all, so I can easily uncheck that website and move on.Show Downloads
GameFans – News for Gamers
GameFans is another great videogame news app for Android, and it delivers on the promise of making game news easier to access. The defining characteristic of this app is the community powered sorting system. If you like an article and it becomes trending, and more people can view it. But if the article is not great, you can leave it as it is and it will go into obscurity.
This means that you’ll always get high quality and popular gaming news on the trending tab, but it also means that articles on less popular games might slip through the cracks. If you want to help out the community, you can check the recent tab and see if you like any articles. This is a great way to ensure that the most relevant and popular content is displayed in the main tab. As for interface and readability they are both quite standard and serviceable.Show Downloads
These were a few great video game news apps for Android and I’m pretty sure that you will be happy with the selection I have collected here. As I said, Appy Gamer is a longtime favorite of mine, but all of these apps are great, so choose the apps (or apps) that best suit your personal tastes and you’re sure to be pleased.
