App offers latest news and updates.
I like it.
No option to delete news sources in World News No option to prevent screen sleeping. The screen sleeps with the default timeout. It must have an option to prevent sleeping while reading. When the option is added in its setting, five Stars ensue! Have I got your attention? Rating will deteriorate as you ignore the common sense request. Reading should not be interrupted. Make it happen. Introduce the option. Hello, Keep your promise. Reading mode. Learn from FBReader that does have this feature. COME ON! YOUR APP IS FOR READING FEEDS UNINTERRUPTED.
2/2/2018 Still the best aggregate news app anywhere. Always adding new sources. I highly recommend this app to everyone! You should too! Thanks, SmartNews 8/2/17 Another update: In the era of "fake news" [pun intended] SmartNews adds new channels frequently. In our fast paced 24 hour news cycle, you're only one quick click away from the best aggregated, updated news. I understand why there are ads. Have you considered a fee/membership option to skip ads. I tell E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E about this fabulous app. Thanks SmartNews! You guys rock! 05/31/17 - It gets better all the time. This app is the best. You can customize what news you want to receive. This app is fantastic. Best of all is it's free. A most sincere thank you to the developers. 7 months later, I still think this app is the best. I don't know how I made it through the days before I got it! Update: July 4th 2016. I still think this is the best news app ever. It only gets better and better as they add more news and magazine choices. Keep up the great work. update 12/22/16 still the best!
Not able to edit content sources in top stories section is frustrating. Too much pushed content about celebs, biased news sources, and irrelevant content that is called "news". This app use to be good. Unfortunately even now the 'emergency' pushes (which the user can't turn off) are often non-news or even "fake" news. Getting those type of pushes over a random celeb passing away is certainly not worth emergency push notification.
Good way to get headline news quickly. I gave it a 4 star because every day there on the front page advert that has a fake headline about Celebs and links to a mens erectile product. "Elon Musk leaving Tesla to support this company" Or "Police Raid Ice-T home, rapper in custody". Or "Ice-T dies in accident" You click and it is an ad. Click the authors name and it just reloads the advert page. Please hold your advertisers to a higher and truthful standard.
