United Nations News is a free app by developer Justin Angel (see "Neurons" video) that pulls down all the top news right from the United Nations, including articles, video, radio and pictures.
Although many people don't follow the U.N. directly, this app makes a strong case to get you to do just that due to its excellent user experience and UI layout. In short, it's just darn nice to look at (even if the news is a bit sullen).
The app is of course free, open source and now award-winning (opens in new tab). Those are three reasons why you should give it a spin, plus, it might make you a better global citizen if you know what's going on in the world. Just sayin'. Grab it here in the Marketplace.
