What can you use the app for?

Tech Fuga is a tech news aggregator that was launched towards the end of 2008. It scours the internet for tech related news and is updated in just 5 minutes. There is a lot of tech news out there, and the trouble is that the same site doesn’t normally tell you everything you want to know. Tech Fuga is very convenient because it collects all of the different tech news stories in one convenient location so that you can read them at your leisure. Tech Fuga makes reading tech related news stories much easier than it would otherwise be; it gets news from mainstream news sites including CNET, Google news, tech crunch, yahoo news and technorati. It puts popular news stories higher up the list which makes it very easy to find out about stories that are popular or have received a lot of comments.
