☀☀☀☀☀ Timeline, available on iOS and mobile web, is a news app with a twist: it connects past and present. Unlike most news sources, which merely provide the latest headline, this app lets users “travel through time” as they read the historical context of current events. Its uniqueness makes it almost incomparable. Other positive reviews say only Flipboard is as customizable. This could be useful to journalists who want more than a surface level understanding of a story or are doing their own research. With Timeline, they have a way of quickly and visually getting the story beyond the headlines.  Nisa Ayral
