Leans left a tad I'd like to see more balanced (and lately it has gotten better) newsreporting and selection of articles available. I like the different publications I can choose from but a few are way out there. I want to be able to go to one source to get a well rounded view of current news. On a good many occasions Smart News has succeeded with this.
I have used this app for about a year and just until a few months ago really loved it. It used to give me a great summary of scientific news and tech news and world news. Those topics are still great, but like a previous reviewer, I have noticed that it's top stories page seems to be slanted toward liberal politics. I wish they would make it more even handed. But I guess I can ignore those articles for now and see if the editors even things out after the elections. I wanted to get one of the new chromebooks, but want to be sure this will run on it.
Constant failures to stay on! Keeps shutting off... Sharing articles today has become almost impossible as these ads are invasive. Will be uninstalled if this continues!!! And, why can't these news stories be free of mistakes (mis-spellings), etc., that's just sloppy publishing (imo). I demand better. Are they too cheap to hire proof-readers.
Great app, but seems to be very liberal I have loved using this app for probably a year or so now, but especially with the elections coming close, I am very disappointed that most of the political articles in this app are very favorable towards Hillary and bash Trump. Wish the app would try not to be so obvious in choosing sides. Other than that I love this app!
My favorite news app I like to read news about everything and this app lets me do exactly that. Yes, some news have a tabloid feeling so it makes you second guess the validity of the report but for the majority of it, it's a good and reliable source of news. This app is my daily read. Best news app out there so far.
Enjoy the variety of sources and viewpoints all in one place. It takes less time to keep up with the important news. My one complaint - many of the articles don't include dates. Especially when polls are changing, it's frustrating to start reading an article that you think is new but realize from context that it's a week old.
