Ive been using this app for as long as i can remeber I love smart news, it customizable to tailor to what i find interesting. In fact, besides being able to choose my sources, it offers specific themes, which has suggested new outlets. The only thing i wish to be added is a a function to favorite certain articles or add them to an archive of some sort.
Used to like..but no longer respects DISABLE NOTIFICATIONS..I have set it to that 4 times..guess what?.. Still get notifications..it is aggressive and does not respect the DISABLE NOTIFICATIONS option it gives..PUSHES UNWANTED NOTIFICATIONS Great..easy access to a large variety of news sources!.. all in one place with easy to navigate tabs to get to news from the source you want..world...local..sports..technology...you pic only the news sources you want..it automatically updates several times a day and you can have let it post a notification of a top news story to your notifications..but you can disable that if you want...I have no need for individual news apps when this one will get news from a lot of well known news sources.
Could be a five It is more like a 4.5 star rating. Excellent source for quick reading on a variety of topics. Easy methods of sharing stories. I don't recommend for serious news. I use this more for entertainment and upcoming tech. The app does crash often, but I believe that is due in part to the web pages not being mobile friendly.
The Best News App Hands Down!! This is by far hands down the best news app that i personally have found. The layout is clean and the smart view loads articles very fast. The only issue i have is that i cannot bookmark an article for later reference. I have to share the link to myself in a text message. If a bookmark feature is added, I will be glad to change my review to five stars. Thank you dev for this otherwise amazing app.
Great way to stay informed. Does as a good news aggragator app should; compiles the most interesting/relevant articles in each category... Some of the "top stories" are a little questionable imo, but I assume that it's based on views, not actual significance.. Minor complaint.
Facebook ad is extremely annoying. Was 5 stars before that was introduced Probably the most used app on my phone for years. Too bad it is on the verge of being uninstalled due to the very intrusive Facebook ads that now constantly open on top of your article. Sometimes a back button goes back to the article but many times it doesn't and goes back to the article selection screen, losing your place in the article before you were interrupted.
- Updates the embedded video player. This should resolve an issue where movies would play only audio for some users.
