Essentially a good news aggregator, except I despise the auto update and reset functions, which are not user controllable in settings. You back out of an article, you find yourself at the top again. You scroll and see an article of interest only to see it disappear before you get a chance to select it. Frustrating and will be hiding from view.
Cannot get rid of rubbish like CNN thus it is probably stuffed with fake news. Might explain why Trump is the president.
I decided to try this app again after Flipboard updated their app and made it almost useless. This is much easier to add sources and organize them. The layout is simple and fast to get the information I want when I open the app. If I could add a few more sources that I don't see on there right now I would give it a 5 star rating.
Constantly hangs trying to load Offline content. I ride the subway to work and like to read offline news on my commute. I download my news sources in the morning before I head out. Since subway wifi/LTE signal is weak/non-existent at times the app constantly tries to download and update offline news articles each time I open them. If my cell signal is weak (which it is for 99% of the subway ride) the app won't load the article and just spins waiting for a signal that will never come for an article I DOWNLOADED OFFLINE. So annoying and defeats the entire purpose of Offline news. Workaround is to disable mobile signal but that get annoying fast. Looking for alternatives since the offline function is useless. just download the article and leave it alone, no need to constantly try and update it.
It would great if they provide podcasts.
Although it's changed a couple of times, it's still pretty good! News stories are based on what you have previously been interested in and your history - thankfully it has the option to hide or show fewer stories if an article appears from a source you're not interested in.
