This news app, IN ENGLISH, is the best one there is on the list. Its not just German news either. What I really like about it is the text only mode. Here there are no ads and no pictures to distract you from reading the news. I don't think there is a better news app anywhere. Thank you for such a brilliant app.

Really disappointed with the new update. I use your app to learn German, and selecting the words (or any part of the text) in the previous version of the app opened a small 'on hover' menu with the 'translate' button that allowed me to instantly translate the unknown words and parts of text that I didn't understand. However, the new update does not allow me to do that and I have to exit the app and copy the text to translator app which is really frustrating and time consuming.

I have been watching DW for about three years. They give a different view of the news that is more open without the biases of most American News networks.
