Free Android app “S.alt” aggregates the best in Singapore alternative media for current affairs, food, tech, and more.

STRAITS Times has an app. So does Today newspaper. Why can’t blogs have them too? First of all, you need money and know-how to make one. And besides, why would anyone want to download an app just to read Mr Brown or Xiaxue, save for their most ardent fans?

But we at New Nation have a solution: Why not just bring the best blogs into one app so that readers can find out what’s happening at one glance? That’s why S.alt was born.

Currently available for Android phones only, you can download the app at this URL: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.appmakr.app150914&feature=search_result

Or, you can download it directly from your phone. Depending on feedback, we might just launch the app on the iPhone or Windows Phone platforms. For a full list of blogs included in the app, scroll down to the bottom of the page.

So, how might the app benefit you? Read on to find out:
