Really satisfied with how the news is presented. With the new feature, videos in the news play automatically, pausing any background music apps like spotify etc. However, once I swipe up for next news my media volume becomes zero and my paused music doesn't resume automatically (which is unusual for any app). Sometimes it really gets annoying. You should fix this issue. I will update my review and give better rating once the issue is fixed.

Simple Widget's Required. Amazing feed and user interface. One of the best in platform. However, as a long-term user would require much versatile Widget's since the notifications are much frequent i prefer the notifications to be turned off(personal setting) and best reach is over Widget's. The existing Widget is limited to one option only. Which is quite disappointing. Please consider the review and look forward for more widgets. Amazing work team Inshorts.

It was a great app untill now but lately it's became just dump yard of the nonsense news. Priority settings doesn't work and you get all the irrelevant news. Continues notifications make it worse. Now from few days, old news started repeating in the feed that just don't get better. I think inshorts can do much better job then what they are doing
