Press Reviews:

BB10apps.com: “Taptu is one of the best Social news feed readers currently out there for the BlackBerry Playbook. This app allows your to add your social media such as Facebook Twitter, Linkedin and your other favourite Websites and blogs through RSS. Once you added them to Taptu it converts them visually appealing streams. This is a great free app that allows you to get your news all in one spot. Be sure to check it out.”

The Register: “A good news aggregator should be able to pull information from a broad range of sources, present it in a clear and easily navigable format, and make it as easy as pie to find, add, remove and edit feeds. For me the app that best ticks all those boxes is Taptu.”
