The Times of India app adds nifty features in the latest update

The Times of India is India's leading English daily published by the Times Group, one of India's biggest media houses.

After the first update in three years in January this year, The Times of India app received a major design refresh and new features as it was bumped to v3.0. The latest v3.1 adds a few new nifty features.

The Times of India app offers everything that an avid news reader is looking for – breaking news, latest headlines, trending stories and in-depth coverage of sports, entertainment, business and technology. The app also packs in exhaustive local coverage of more than 45 Indian cities. The company claims that the app is accessed from more than 225 countries of the world, and is the first choice of NRIs for news about India.

The latest update brings improved memory handling and fixes random crashes that some of the users reported. There's also Live Tile support, as well as the ability to bookmark your favorite articles, movie reviews, and photos.

The app now offers a dark theme that looks very nice. Also, you can now change the font size for stories. The change log suggests that there are some minor design changes and several miscellaneous improvements and bug fixes,

The Times of India app, after the last refresh, is a pretty good and comprehensive news app. I'm a fan of Microsoft's News app that assorts from several news sources online, but if I need to check out a publication, it's the TOI app. What's your favorite news app for India?
