I recently wrote about how I’ve slimmed down to just three apps for my news consumption. However Quartz News came out with a new app yesterday and it is fascinating. It’s news delivered via a chat like interface.

Basically it gives you a headline (you can click to read) or prompt for more information or to move to the next story. I found the entire interface (which is next to nothing) to be simple and well done. I really enjoyed it.

Of course the key here is going to be the alert notifications. Can they get them right? I don’t know. Time will tell there.

For now, if you are a news junkie, this is an app you really need to check out.
