My frank review after a week of usage. Overall, it's a clean and smooth news application. 👍👍👍 To the team. The features are great...especially the personalised area. I also love the text reader. It would be nice to slow the audio speed by a couple of milliseconds. In addition, the header section of the app appears somewhat awkward. It could be because of the extra space which I assumed would be used to place AdMob ads. On top of all, the app is light and loads pretty fast.

Great app... This is fast and accurate and articles are informative. There is no issue about the quality of work but the app itself could use a few more features. Please give an option to change Line spacing and font. It would also be great if night mode could be introduced. You can see Guardian's app for reference, the reading is very easy on eyes.

A well-designed app. There is enough white-space as relief making the screenspace less cluttered. In the Menu, when we tap on one of the sections (like City), to see the subsections (Bengaluru Crime), point size of Sections is right, but that of the sub-sections is too small. In My News, space for visual can be cut and more text added. What's Brewing is good. Also, it will be good if the order of the tabs for different sections running on top of the page can be customized.
