News feed works fine. You can customize it to show areas of interest. It has the frustrating habit of sending a push notification with a really interesting headline, but when you open the alert, that news story is not shown. Not even if you scroll all the way down. Half the time it won't even bring up the missing story if you search for the exact title from the push notification. That gets old fast. Also, too many ads mixed in with real news. At least they are now marked as ads.

It has a variety of news sources, and the app is easy to use. However that is about it. I wish I could choose what news sources to view, so that I dont have to waste time passint over certain less relevant news sources, such as the Huffington Post. Also, more filter options would be a huge help. here's an idea. by adding a favorites tab, or an up down button. The buttom, and favorites tab combined would allow each user to customize news that is relevant to their life, and interests.

Not perfect but pretty good. It's not the most versatile app, but it works fine. I like that there are few "opinion" articles and most of the articles come from credible news organizations. My only complaint is that the app resets after I leave an article and I have to start over from the top and try to find my place... Every time! Which means eventually I give up and go to a different app.
