Newscri.be is a tool to discover and collaborate news stories that you consider significant and have a bearing on your everyday life. The main objective of the website is to gather all the unbiased and good quality news stories from the different news streams available in the Web. These stories can be viewed easily and members of Newscri.be can even write reviews about these stories and connect with other reviews from other users of the website.

Stories are categorized according to the most popular and the most recent news. To see which ones received the highest recommendations from other readers, go to the most popular category. Recent news stories are further sub-categorized into world, technology, business, science, sports and entertainment groupings.

When viewing the stories, you can choose to ″keep” the stories you want to read later on. When you click on the stories' links, you will be transferred to the actual webpage where the story came out. And even when you have been redirected to the original webpage, the ″keep” and ″comments” buttons of Sewsri.be still appears on the top right section of the page, which gives you still an opportunity to add the site to your personal News page.

The great thing about Newscri.be is that you only need to rester once. When you access the news stories, registration is no longer required. The website's creators wanted the site to cater to the people's thirst for news and not just ordinary news but stories that are credible and are free. This is really something great for users, without being bothered by lengthly registration process, readers can easily read updated and credible news stories.

The user interface is easy enough but I'm finding it hard to read the articles because of the text highlights. I know the site got a face lift during the start of the year, but personally, I would prefer reading the news links without the yellow highlight.
