Obviously is not as intuitive as most believe it to be. I like that we can 'dislike' certain topics, news agencies, etc - but it's an age where you can't trust nor believe the media so easily, therefore, it takes a lot of digging to filter out the news sources you dislike. And then they just keep coming. Can be interesting, but takes a while to get it where you need it to be when presenting you topics and stories.
The best news app of the many I've tried. The one disappointing part is the lack of viewing options, a simple list view that can be scrolled vertically is often preferred (as is the intuitive standard action on most devices). It would provide quick checking through numerous headlines rather than the unstructured current large headline plus images that take a while to process mentally. Same can be said about the cluttered horizontal tile layout. Often, simple is best, particularly when your apps purpose is aggregation.
I used to love this app. For some reason, they changed the format so that you can no longer scroll vertically through the headlines. I dislike the "one article at a time" horizontal format. I'm so used to the other format that I find myself trying to scroll vertically, only to open the article I was trying to scroll past. Why, why, why???? Seriously a step backwards, in my opinion. Time to find a new news app :(
Best source of preferred topic news. Have been using it for years. Would have received 5 stars if had a feature that allowed instant blocking of certain blatantly propaganda "fake news" sources.
This started out being a great service and still is EXCEPT they are using misleading photos for the story content and grouping stories undermisleading titles. Politics under weather reports, chemistry under history, etc with no obvious tie in.
I want to use this app but it eats battery ridiculously even when not open, over 1% per hour. Uninstalling. I'll come back if it's optimised.
