    I use the app daily however, the update for the iPhone five is overdue. Ads take up quite a bit of room on my screen. I paid for this app therefore should be void of ads.

  • Good, could be better

    by Lizrude

    I like this app a lot. Love having all the news sources in one app. It's easy to use. What I dislike is, when I get a text or for some reason have to exit the app I lose the place I was at. And sometimes I'm reading an article that I've followed several links to get to and don't remember how I did it. That's pretty irritating. Also, constantly having the 'set as default' come up and having to exit it 25 times is annoying. I know they can't so anything about the ads, but I am about ready to use a different app.

  • Okay but google news is better IMO

    by MMAlilDRAGO

    Not easy enough to share on social networks

  • Awesome

    by Tiradon_one

    Great way to stay in touch with all sources...

  • Okay, but.....

    by jet1956

    Great idea, but not much has changed since first launched. Needs to determine what bind app it is and then build on that strength.

  • Good app

    by Hope-1

    This is a good app go infromation.

  • Good idea, but needs work

    by ajguyot

    The idea of this app is great, and admittedly, it does it fairly well, but it's not great. Not even good really. The app is excellent in landscape mode for giving a clear and easy reading area, but this mode really needs a back button. As it is the only way to go back after reading a page is to switch to portrait to get access to the back button. Now for portrait mode, which is really where most of the apps actual features come into play: I'm not even going to bring up the fact that every time you delete a source the app crashes. It's jarring and obnoxious and needs to be fixed but this is just a big so I didn't lower my rating any more because of it. The UI is terrible. It's too filled with junk. There is a small viewing area in the middle surrounded by two blocks on top and bottom. The blocks take up a huge amount of screen real estate. So much so that it is ridiculous because they really don't have much purpose. If the developers update this so that there is a button to hide the blocks on either side and give us the whole screen to read from in portrait mode then I will ignore the other small annoyances and give it a five star rating.

  • Pretty cool

    by Koga Brown

    Good news app but not better than news 360.

  • Great APP.

    by E V Jr

    I have a lesser known city paper programmed into it, and find it easy to keep up with the local and state news that would not make the national news. I give it a thumbs up.

  • Love this...

    by aimjoe

    I love the info all in one place, whatever your preference is for a news source (or sports, or entertainment, or weather, or tech....) you WILL find it in this one app. The only downfall is getting kicked out when deleting a source, but eventually that won't matter once you have removed the sources you don't care for.

  • ItsaWinner

    by JimboSWE

    I am reviewing this as an early user. I gave it aq 4 because I have not had time to go deep and do enough yet. But...it is easy to use, works effectively every time and has a wide range of alternatives to choose from. In many ways it is like 5 (or more) apps in one. It is a good buy for those who want to hop around good news, weather, business and other sites from a central location in a quick and easy way.

  • Works great

    by Tupi7912

    I give it five stars. Works as advertised and you can set a default page for each news category (news, sports etc) and you have the ability to add more pages. Well organized, and works fine - worth it.

  • A 4.0 grade for this app

    by HowdyDoody

  • No

    by JetAway

    Freezes. Click a news source and nothing happens. You're not sure if it's loading or just not working. You'll wish you'd skipped this one.

  • Big problems

    by JGTX56

    I donwloaded this app based on other reviews. Every time I tried to delete a source I got bounced out.

    by Nick Powers

  • Great info app!!

    by Dixiecon

    Easy to use, all the info in one spot, great!!

  • Nice app for consolidated news

    by ShepRocks

    I was looking for one app to organize my news. This one is easy to use and allows you to customize what sources you want to see. Look no further.

    by Deborah Olsen

  • R E F U N D

    by Verticalandstillstanding

    This APP is worth four stars after it refunds your money and the five stars rating after your account is credited!! Totally not worth the price......:(

  • Not worth $2

    by Dmfggd

    It only provides links to news apps that are free. Save your money and just download the free news apps

  • Need to have it

    by All4Uagn

    It's an app that I use every morning and every night, it lets me view many different media sources which gives a choice to analyze the same news topics with bias opinions in order for me to better formulate my own opinion. I recommend highly to the open minded reader.

    by Snow in Dallas

    Lots of variety in genre and titles, but would like to have more space available to view pages. Half of the screen is rather frustrating.
