About this app

OUR AI MODELS FILTER JUNK OUT
20 cutting-edge models, with source code and datasets open to the public. Full transparency and no hidden biases. Effective detection (and filtering) of misinformation, disinformation, propaganda, and clickbait.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR EXPERIENCE AND CONTROL YOUR FEED
You have complete control over sources, categories and the amount of articles in each category. You can enable and disable publications as you see fit. You can see how we customized the feed to your preferences, and manually adjust every single thing we did. There are no black boxes - you are in control.

A SLICK USER INTERFACE
If you like the topic of an article, swipe right (and you’ll see more articles on this topic over time). If you find the topic boring, swipe left (and you’ll see less). If you want to listen rather than read, click a button (or say “listen”) and we’ll play the summary for you. If you want to comment or share, it’s one button-click (or voice command) away.

A BULLET-POINT SUMMARY FOR EACH NEWS ITEM
Save your time and effort by reading a few short bullet points instead of giant walls of text. Most articles don’t need to be 8000 words. We summarize them for you in a few sentences (and then link to the source).

A NUTRITION LABEL FOR EACH NEWS ITEM
Our food comes with nutrition labels. Shouldn’t our news have them too? Well, now it does. Every article comes with a detailed nutrition label that helps you decide whether something is worth consuming -- before you consume it.

HANDS-FREE NEWS READING
Use voice commands to control our apps, and ask to listen to news articles instead of reading them. All the slick interface features described above - swipes, customizations, etc - can be done hands-free!

Experience all these benefits and more by downloading our app today. It's free, ad-free and junk-free.

Try it out for yourself, completely free of charge.

Prior to the latest update, it was solid. Marty's implementation is absolutely horrendous and so much less efficient than just googling something and reading an article. "Top stories" has been showing me the same stories for 3 days. The discussion section shouldn't exist. Social media has ruined the news. Listen, the core functionality of the app is great: aggregate news based on interests and coverage preferences. Maybe stick to that instead of bloating your app with useless features.

The app has potential, but it also has a major spam problem. In the "Discuss" tab, you see nothing but advertisments for obvious scams. This doesn't subtract from the core experience, but it does make the app look "cheap", if that makes sense. As for the core experience: it's great. The AI doesn't work perfectly, of course, but that's to be expected.
