It took less than 2 days to go from loving this app to uninstalling it. As others said, the UI is decent, but it often causes Android's text to speech to fail. The big issue was how the feed went from balanced to mostly extreme left and extreme right articles with more and more BS articles being added, even after trying to correct the feed by hiding clickbait articles that meaninglessly blather. Sigh. Had hopes.

Hello Shaun, I Sorry to hear you received that content. At our core, we believe in being a neutral presenter of info from ALL sides so you are informed and can make the decision on what to read and trust. I will forward this to our Quality Assurance team, but I also wanted to let you know you can block sources so they won't show up again. BR, Tony

Block function does not work. When you block someone, you still get notifications of their replies. What's the use in having a block function? This app sucks. When people reply, you can see it in your notifications but when you click on it, there's never anything there. Then the app shows that people haven't posted for weeks when they replied to uou a day ago. Tech support is useless. They say email them and they'll fix problems. You never hear from them. Deleting this app immediately

It is an excellent app. It does a great job of presenting national and local news topics. However, there are two issues. 1 .There are endless and agressive Tik Tok ads. 2. I can see that i have a few messages. However when i click messages, it always says "empty".
