Works great and is practical I'm submitting a more updated review. I've used this app since it came out after google took theirs down. I love the widget and that I can make custom sections for news articles. Like local and state news. I paid so I have no ads but when I did have ads they only took up half the space one article preview would at the bottom of the screen. I also have a note 4 so I have lots of screen real estate anyway.
Great app. Great app, I've run it for over 2 yrs...
Inaccurate, incomplete and annoying. Slow loading. Shows inaccurate weather for towns and/or villages up to 50Km away from current location. When weather does show, resulting weather and temps are often opposite of that shown (ie. today is sunny and dry - N&W called for rain all week). Bright, distracting and irrelevant pop-up ads. Weather hourly chart does not move or reflect weather activity. Stories (news, entertainment, etc) filled with half-truths and mis-information with no follow-up. Previous version was better, weatherwise.
Half decent Seen same articles even after refresh for three straight days. Heavy concentration on the Canucks under sports. Unless you like repetition and live in BC, try to use another news app.
Xcellent App Best news app available.. Awesome. .... However a few updates later and 'exclude news source' us still not working. A strange thing has been happening in the last few days. Oops - My Bad, Nope, happening after reboot as well, klik on an article in the widget, it reloads articles then takes you to some other category. Very disconcerting
Best Text News App Available Love this app and install it on every device I set up. Easy on the eyes, quick to load and refresh, and provides amazing depth of coverage on even the most obscure topics.
