My thanks to Dave Pell for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote NextDraft. NextDraft is a quick, entertaining look at the day’s best stories, from the top of the news, to the very bottom. Written by Dave Pell, a news junkie’s news junkie, NextDraft is smart and funny.

It’s a once-per-weekday newsletter, delivered either by email or a very nice iOS app. The once-a-day pace keeps you up to date on the news, but keeps you from feeling pestered by frequent emails or notifications. NextDraft is not about breaking news — it’s just a carefully curated and cleverly written daily update. You like email? Sign up for the newsletter. Hate email? Get the app.

Here’s the kicker: NextDraft is free of charge. There is no catch. I’ve been a subscriber ever since it launched, and NextDraft is one of those rare things that makes me want to look at my email inbox.
