A very good news app! The custom sites part of the app is very good. The default Top News section needs a little improvement. The default page icons are a little too big and no option seems to be available to customize the page. Settings also seems to be very limited. I have recently noticed that the app runs in the background and keeps using data. It can not be shut down - not good!
One of my primary forms of news I've been using Sky Grid for over a year now, and still use it every day. This, among other apps, is one of my primary forms of staying informed, and aside from some occasional connection issues, it's always functional.
I love this app! It is the best! I have not experienced any crashes or bugs ..... I'm lovin it...Good programming ;)
Getting annoyed I've had this app on my iPhone and it worked far better than on an android. One: to there is no settings section, two, YouTube videos don't work within and last I can't share with Facebook it simply denies me to.
Can't zoom Are you kidding me. Why can I not zoom in on things. Why is there no support? Somebody should fix this. I have the iPhone version AND I can zoom in on articles. I'm sick of panning left and right. Get it together...
Does not customize news. Doesn't save. It always asked me to pick topics of interest and yet never saved them. Layout was bad. This and Flipboard are awful. Taptu was the best but now gone. I'm in news limbo now.
