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.
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.
Not easy enough to share on social networks
Great way to stay in touch with all sources...
Great idea, but not much has changed since first launched. Needs to determine what bind app it is and then build on that strength.
This is a good app go infromation.
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.
Good news app but not better than news 360.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Keeps desk top organized. Crashes once in awhile. Worth it- ignore ads.
Best news app around.
It's great, been looking for a news app with info.
When deleting sources app often crashes. Would like to see more control over local news. That said, it's the best news app i've found, I use it every day
Great to have everything in one place!
Great place for quick access to a ton of mobile news, sports and gossip sites
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.
I donwloaded this app based on other reviews. Every time I tried to delete a source I got bounced out.
Every time I delete a news source the app crashes. Annoying!!! I want my money back!
Should we bid Info Junky a farewell ? This app is all but dead on our iPad 2. What could the mater be, HELP!
Great news app!
My previous complaint about this app , the excessive ads, appears to have been fixed. Great app, by far the best consolidated news app on the market!
Easy to use, all the info in one spot, great!!
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.
One place to find all the news fm different sources! I like it!
I get more news on this app than all the rest. I love The Drudge Report to start my day!
Very convenient..but I don't like the ad banners.
I use it like everyday
I review several news sources and topics at the end of each day with this handy app.
It's very handy to have all the different news outlets in one place.
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......:(
It only provides links to news apps that are free. Save your money and just download the free news apps
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.

If you want news and news and news this is the app for you. You won't ever run out of news! Good app.
I am a librarian and to have all my fave web sites all in one place is very pleasing. User friendly - easy to navigate
Love the alerts. Keeps me up to date.
Great way to surf all my favorite news outlets!
What a waste of money. I was hoping for news salvation but instead found a crappy app that we should be paid to use. DELETE
Great app very useful indeed
One stop shop for news. Allowed me to delete several other apps.
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.
