Generally good, but suffers the same fate as most news aggregators - obtrusive ads. I don't mind watching ads, but don't take over my device to show me ads, and worse, don't play ads full volume when my phone is set to silent. One other baffling issue with the app is whenever I try to download articles, the app refuses saying 'no network found'. Last time I checked cell phone data constituted a valid network. I don't understand the requirement to only work on wifi. Baffling.........

This app eats my battery alive it's constantly running in the background as if it's an antivirus. It is made my phone get way too hot I'm uninstalling. Also, it'll put me in a pop-up loop it'll pop up and I will have no choice and it'll take me to the Play store and I try to back out of it and the only thing I can do? Is close all my apps press the thing that makes you see what's active in the background and kill it again. Battery hog redirects you to the Play store in a pop-up loop no thanks

I am on several news platforms and have accounts with each one. I enjoy the "Opera Newsbreak" in particular because of the way the information is laid out. It's very convenient and I don't get lost where I am going with the article. I've also noticed and had a major problem with the articles themselves concerning the content. Some stories have no common sense applied to them and that's very frustrating as a reader that is critical of truth, context and content. Not with Opera Newsbreak!
