I love circa because it's short and sweet with the news, but accurate and timely as well! Best for knowing what's going on in the world without becoming bored with long articles!
This app is great! All the news in quick, easy to read articles!
This is my favorite news app
This is my favorite news app
I love the content but have problems with being able to share on twitter, I get frozen trying to log in.
This app and it's researchers get the real story as best as humanly possible in this day and age. Instead of looking up multiple news sources myself, they do it for you to get a better idea of a news story. Bravo!!
Circa allows you to digest a large amount of news very quickly, with more depth in stories you are interested in. It's the perfect concept for a mobile news distribution app.
Love that this app provides just the main points to relevant and current news; just wish it had a section for sports.
This app saved my aunt who was about to die of kidney cancer. This app was the reason my younger brother decided to put down the razor blade and not end his life. Without this app I sincerely doubt I would be alive today much less be the successful man I am today.
Great app and content, but scrolling to the end makes content jump up three screens without loading new content.
I love this app. If you want to keep track of what's going on in the world there is no better app than Circa.
This is by far the best news app, the best articles, the best topics, everything you need to stay up to date with current events.
This is a great way to find news interests quickly, without sifting through 15 articles about Justin Bieber!

Reading on an iPhone can get annoying. This app makes reading the news easy, fast, and simple. Get this app.
Great summaries of news and easy ability to follow. Good way to get updates on stories that may otherwise miss.
i love this app!!! best news app on the market. Really hits the main points of the story. leaves out all of the fluff and satisfies your news appetite. Definitely recommend!
Very useful an easy to navigate!
It's a worthwhile app!!
My favorite news app.
I love it.
I love how I can select the most relevant news articles and receive push messages as the stories develop over time. Win!
Just what I need for my morning news review. Love this app!
Cool app the stories are straight to the point but there just isn't enough articles. I download this app on Friday and Sunday after plenty of refreshing I still have the same ok stories the world is changing why isn't my stories!!
Clean, easy to navigate interface. Decent selection of stories with concise content.
Finally, a news source that just focuses on the information not opinion. It's been a trusted companion since I first discovered it and is truly an app that's long overdue
I love it but in the Kansas senator article they accidentally typed "countries" rather than "counties". Still an amazing app though!
This might not be the most in depth, comprehensive news app but when I want to catch up with the news of the day on my phone, there's no better app. Circa gives you all the pertinent info you need on any given story. Even the tech section is impressive for a general news app. If I had to find something to improve it would be the iPad version-it's just a blown up version of the iPhone app. It'd be nice if it was optimized for the iPad. Great job guys!
Circa is perfect because it always gives you the information you need, never the filler. It's great for reading news quickly and on the go, and always gives you something to talk about.
This app makes reading the news a pleasure. The design and layout are so easy on the eyes. Highly recommended!
Converted News360 user. Circa's short and sweet and to the point method of delivery is vastly preferred to reading standard articles. In today's fast paced world that we live in I don't have time to read entire articles. I just wanna know what's going on in the world.
Very nice. Simple and informative.
This app really helps you get your news while not making you feel lost in it. Good job to the designers.
Like the news presentation and stories. I don't feel like my chain is being pulled constantly with muck to get advertising hits like most major news websites these days.
There is nothing out there like Circa. This delivers top news In a very intelligent and interesting way. Also following a story is a great way to get updates on that story. Love circa
I wanted to find a news app that gave me news I wanted and was something that was current. This app is great. I love the stories and I enjoy how they are not really long. Gives me what I want and what need in stories that are not to overwhelming to read. Great app!
This app is a great location to receive your headlines in one quick look
I would love this except that the scrolling is totally janky.
As everyone has already pointed out, this is an amazing app for getting your daily, weekly, or monthly news fix. However, the developers definitely deserve another five star rating!!
Circa has a great selection of news stories and is an enjoyable way to keep up to date. Likely my most used news app.
The format of the app for presenting news stories is very appealing; makes reading the news interesting. Simple design and function makes it attractive. Best news app I came across! Not too liberal, not too conservative.
But this is the best news app I have ever seen.
I'm not a huge sports nut by any stretch, but do enjoy knowing how teams/players are doing at a high level. A sports section will hopefully arrive soon, as Circa grows. I'd been searching for ways to add the news back into my life through Facebook (messy), Twitter (overload), and other news specific apps like Yahoo's new one (stories felt eerily incomplete). Circa strikes an incredible balance of richness, approachability, and beauty. I'm a big fan of what they're doing and Circa has officially been moved to my homepage.
I check Circa multiple times every day, because it is the best way to interact with the news. It always works well, and it breaks every story into easy to read chunks. Must have for news junkies!
News is surfaced quickly, and it’s usually relevant to what I want to read. Interesting mix of tech, politics, and world issues. Well done.
Nice way to get news highlights and follow new info on a story. Just have to be careful getting news from a single source.
Covers stories I don't always see in the news. Like that there are categories and the stories are kept short to the point yet links to full story/other reports.
This is my first stop for news. It's presented in a fast, simple format, and loads quickly. I see a good mix of stories without any editorializing. It also has a no-fuss way of subscribing to stories I want it follow without having to sign up for something. Great app all around.
Circa has become my favorite and only news source because it delivers the articles that interest me in a very simple and clean format.
Tried a lot of apps found this is the best. Good job guys
Great concept, great execution. I am on this app all the time, really helps keep me on top of things and it's nice getting stories without the bias. Wished that when you scrolled to the bottom to refresh that the stories wouldn't jump around and I'd love it if when you were following related stories they wouldn't all update with the same updates...
The long awaited new approach to news. The App completely changes the way we access the news that matter most. Outstanding. A downside is that is the icon notification badge will not go away after you have read the news.
Short concise unbiased - perfect news app with pleasing aesthetics.
Good interface,short and fair,simple.
... to the point. Nice sharing and follow features.
Its high ratings are well earned. Very usable and gorgeous. To its developers: just one beef...please make the scrolling less jarring by making it track my swipes normally (for instance, like Safari would).
Reading is so easy!
love the updates on specific stories!
Perfect for just the right amount of morning and evening news. The updates to stories are awesome. Love the customization. Hats off to you developers and news editors, thanks!
Things like these are what's changing the way we do things (in this case flow up on the stories from the news that interests each user individually). It's easier, faster convenient and always an arms reach away. ITS GREAT
App works well. Especially like the followed story option.
I use Circa on my Phone but it would be terrific if there was an iPad version.
A simple yet effective news source. Couldn't ask for anything better.
I hate the news so I never watch or read it. I like the condensed version and that I only read stories that interest me
Love the UI updates for iOS 7. One of the few news apps I trust to curate a high quality and comprehensive daily reading list. Among my top 3 favorite news apps of all time.
Great way to get news...the summary is clear and concise.. Well done! Just need a iPad app:))
Finally. A news source that cuts the crap and pushes forward the straight facts.
I was becoming very tired of playing catch up with the news around 10. With this app, it made being up to date on events much easier!
I love knowing the scope of news reported based on Circa's chronological source and store update capability.
What the other guys should be doing.
It is concise, and so easy to read. Just swipe up to bring up the next paragraph. No more trying to find my place if I have to look away for a second.
I love that you can follow stories as they develop
It's really helpful for my current issue class. Easy to track the news!!!
This is the best news aggregating app around!
Great gesture response, fast loading time, and beautiful design are the hallmarks of any fine app. I had high expectations and they've been met.
Great for catching up with news. Wide variety covered.
Updated frequently with accurate, easy-to-read news.
No fillers, no fluff, no ADs. News from the world over in brief detail.
News when I want it. No problems. Great app.
Best news app by far. Quick nimble interface.
Great app for getting caught up on world news quickly and easily without having to sort through the unimportant filler that makes up a lot of articles.
Please add an option to have ALL news as a notification not just the news articles I follow or the breaking news which doesn't work for me. Been crashing lately too :(
I find Circa much more convenient than using CNN's Website. Circa lets the user quickly skim headlines and get the salient points from articles. CNN's Website requires navigating forward and backward through ad-generating links. Circa's headlines are clear, and CNN's headlines are vague (to encourage click-through).
I really like the clean look of this app. The news is truly top stories that are important, not cluttered with so called "top news" that other apps use. It is always updated and gives you the info you need in a very simple easy to read format. Highly recommend!!!!
Great news app.
Clean, easy to read. Perfectly segmented. Great for quick updates on current affairs.
The closest I can get to news without bias! Inspiring!
Clear, concise. Love the follow option so I can stay up to date on what interests me. Would like to see a full iPad version.
Best news app on iOS by far Needs a Sports section!
My first choice for news at national & world level.
I am a pretty big news junkie and I have tried pretty much all the news reader apps out there. "Circa." is the first that has a truly valuable feature of updating you on a developing storyline.
