SQUID App - the news octopus

The symbol of the featured news app is an octopus, in English "Squid". To explain it, the editors say (translated into German):

The squid is an intelligent, dynamic, and versatile animal. In the SQUID app world, the squid captures the messages for the user with its tentacles and delivers the “best ink” according to the user's preferences.

The “best ink” naturally means the best articles, news and magazine articles in the form of (digital) printer ink. So it's all the nicer to see that too sir appleot was included in this dance.

The SQUID app starts with the selection of the subject areas for which you want to receive messages. Later you can adjust and refine the selection.

You will then be forwarded to your news feed and can swipe back and forth between the selected categories. I immediately noticed a negative point of criticism: in the area of ​​"film" it is clearly too much about irrelevant topics such as "Bachelor" and "jungle camp", which can only be counted as part of the film sector with a lot of goodwill and two closed eyes . 

With the little plus (+) in the upper right corner you can choose further categories - for example "Comics". SQUID App Test 2

With the little plus (+) in the upper right corner you can choose further categories - for example "Comics".

With the small, circled "+" in the top right, you can add or deselect categories and subject areas as well as regions (Germany, World, Top News in English, etc.) at any time. Here you will also find significantly more or more specific topics than with the first app setup - for example, education, comics, marketing & media, LGBTQ, video news, YouTubers, etc.

Here you can choose from many other categories and topics for your individual news feed. SQUID App Test 3

To read individual articles, which are usually displayed with a preview image and the headline, you just have to tap on them. Then you can switch between the web display and the reading mode. When testing a Sir Apfelot article, some content was lost in reading mode. Not only the Amazon boxes in which the presented products are shown, but above all the subheadings necessary for understanding.

In WWW mode, the original formatting is displayed, in reading mode, however, individual display options are standardized or content is completely removed. SQUID app experiences

Conclusion on the news offer

The app with the full name SQUID - News & Magazines offers an extensive selection of news articles, blog posts, advice, reports and meetings. With the different categories, language choices and other customization options, there is something for everyone. If you want to share individual content and adapt it beforehand with markings and stickers, you can do this as well. Here and there perhaps a little more attention could be paid to the relevance of individual reports (keyword “jungle camp” in the film area), but otherwise the app is a pretty good piece of information.

What do you all mean? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic!
