Stay Up-To-Date With Your Interests Whilst Out and About

It’s safe to assume that, if you are reading this article, then you probably already own a smartphone. You may even be reading these words from its brightly lit OLED screen. Over 6 billion people in the world currently have access to a smartphone, and it is the most popular way to get online nowadays. These clever little pocket computers can be used in many different ways, from making a phone call and telling the time, to accessing a bank account, buying a new car, and ordering an evening meal. Many people live their lives through their phones and the phrase “there’s an app for that” has never been truer.

So, what’s the best way to stay informed about your favorite hobbies, interests, and obsessions whilst on the move? We’ve got some ideas which we think might interest you.


Comic Books

Of course, here at First Comics News, our overarching concern is with everything comic book-related. When it comes to accessing comics from a smartphone, there are plenty of different options available. With an e-reader app such as ComiXology, Marvel Unlimited, or DC Universe, it’s easy to read the latest issue during the morning commute or whilst waiting at the doctor’s office. There’s also the opportunity to go back and revisit past issues, catch up with the latest comics news, and even stream TV and movies (more on that later). Whilst you might wish to splash out on a hard copy of a comic that’s close to your heart, you can get a lot more reading done if you use a comics app too. It’s also quick and simple to look at pages in a web browser, post on forums, and check out the latest comics-related social media, right from your mobile phone. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and DeviantArt all have strong comic book communities, so you can stay informed and even make a few new friends along the way. Big brands such as Marvel and DC are great at making sure that fans feel included by updating their social media regularly, and running competitions, giveaways, and promotions.



Beyond the world of comics, many of us also enjoy following our favorite sports teams and athletes. Here at FCN, for example, we are big fans of wrestling and like to keep up-to-date with all the latest news from both the WWE and AEW. There are several major wrestling news apps on the market, as well as platforms where you can watch all the latest matches. YouTube is a fantastic resource for all the action, commentary, and predictions that you want whilst on the go, whereas websites like SBO can provide you with all the sports betting info you could possibly need. If you fancy a flutter, then you’ll find all the best mobile betting sites here, along with solid advice on the biggest bonuses, free bets, and VIP programs. The best news is that you can rest assured that every site recommended on SBO has been fully checked out regarding security, customer service, and competitive odds. With all that taken care of, you can get on with the fun part and hopefully, it’ll pay off!


Movies & TV

As we touched on previously, it is now possible to watch your favorite TV shows and movies whilst out and about. The rollout of 5G technology across the globe continues to improve streaming speeds on mobile, and there are now plenty of streaming platforms to choose from. Old favorites like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and YouTube will send push notifications when a new episode or series of your favorite show is released, and their streaming quality is now second to none. However, it’s also worth investigating exciting new streaming choices, such as Disney+, Movies Anywhere, Twitch, and the updated Crunchyroll. Twitch, in particular, is breaking away from the herd, offering so much more than just footage of pro gamers playing Fortnite in their bedrooms. Much like YouTube, the platform hopes to host video content from everyone, including artists, vloggers, musicians, and official esports teams. You’ll find plenty of comics-based content, alongside the very pleasant and popular ‘Just Chatting’ channels, and the unbelievable talent on show in the music section.
