  • Cool

    by Usman Ul haq

    It is really a good app breaking new means breaking news

  • Great!

    by HGoDONI

    Love it! Use it everyday, keeps me up to date on the road!

  • Simply the Best

    by Chetola

    The push news updates work without a flaw. Couldn't ask for more!

  • Breaking news

    by Ruth Ann Christopher

    I love the notifications I like keeping up on what's going on in the news great job ... GREAT app.

  • Good App.

    by Omama10

    Good app. Keeps Us UTD with the latest news.

  • Informed

    by Angelndskyz

    I like staying well informed. Seems news breaks more often than actually received through app.

  • Ed

    by Toddy1087

    So handy to have breaking news. It keeps me up to date on breaking stories as well as facts. Very nice

  • Love the notifications

    by Windows-8

    With headlines in my notifications I am at least updated with what's happening around the world. Good app for those who are not much into news - but still don't mind to get updated.

  • Good idea, not as good in function

    by Mandk38

    Good idea to consolidate news sources, though frequently they are all reporting virtually the same thing. However, I find it frequently doesn't respond when I click on the headlines to read more of the stories (especially with MSNBC). May just stick with the apps from a few news sources I trust and read anyway; they have alerts, too.

  • Right on time

    by Dianthes

    Breaking news lets you in on what's happening before the news hits regular media a great way to stay informed!

  • Over a year -- maybe two

    by Abowman

    I've had this app on my phone for around two years. Let me just say that it is solid. You want news? You want breaking brand new news? You want push notifications for you news? This app is all you'll need.

  • Excellent

    by LivesToLearn

    Personally I enjoy breaking news of all types anywhere and anytime. This app is no doubt a keeper.

  • Great App!

    by Gollito33

    Really gets me up to date quickly.

  • Cannot live without it!

    by The Boss2948

    I depend on the Breaking News to be up todate on just about everything.

  • One thing to make it better

    by DerShnifter

    I got this to replace Push News which appears to be kaput. So far so good, but I would like it if the source of each alert was shown.

  • Great app

    by 07457

    Is very timely & has great sources of news

  • Breaking News

    by phthisis

    Great news coverage. Burdensome to have to go back to main page to follow article trails of sub-menus. Have yet to figure out the function of the 3 horizontal bars on the lower left hand side. Also, would be nice if I had the option to collapse the left menu column as I read articles.

  • Excellent app for busy people

    by roserich12

    Well done

  • Good

    by Mikeyboye

    Good app

  • Timely updates

    by Ibidapo Adegbenro

    I don't have to listen to news or watch TV to know what is happening. News delivered on time.

  • Really Obnoxious Ads

    by terry106sc

    Hard to read the news for the ads. Would have paid to upgrade to trash them, but that is not an option. Deleted.

  • Worthless

    by Elpjr59

    This app is worthless. I opened it to see what the breaking news was and it is still showing news from December 31 and it is January 2.

  • Bearchip2

    by Chipbear

    It's OK.

  • Pros and cons

    by disappointed in the build

    Pros: Has all major news outlet sources Cons: Some story links fail to open; settings adjustments in iPhone do NOT cancel alerts; major energy drain.

  • One sided headlines

    by Antibomber

    With most of the media pandering to progressive fascists like Harry and Barry, I thought this app would provide a wide range of news outlets for me view but alas over 80% of it is from the Communist News Network. So don't expect a balanced delivery of current events.

  • Crashes system every time

    by Biaggio19

    Do not download this. I tried it 4 or 5 times and it crashed my entire system every time, forcing a complete reboot. Stay away.

  • Needs to be low vision friendly

    by Azgem4587

    Disappointing that it doesn't include font size to make font size bigger for easier reading.

  • Nothing to report

    by 1737922261142573

    One of those apps that seem to be doing what promised but do nothing interesting or exciting as a product. It adds little value to news line. Similar info can be retrieved from multiple other places. All graphics come from links listed. Limited sources, no sorting.

  • Easy peezy!

    by LeMay305

    A nice little app to see what's going on.

  • Love the push notifications.

    by Thorazine79

    Great app. Good source of news.

  • Good one!

    by Dblshrp

    Great app! Better than another I have. I use this pretty much every day.


    by WyndbrakerNYC

    Fine little app that keeps you in touch with all the crazy things that are going on out there... Stay tuned late Friday afternoons when Obama tends to drop his biggest bombshells!

  • Asewome

    by Andrey1986a

    Love it !!

  • Easy, Topical, Fast

    by bilk

    Usually the first to show up on any of my devices. This is how I learned about the Supreme Court decision regarding ACA and many other important topical events. Not always the best source for in depth details but very good for breaking news.

  • Terrific App!

    by 12runner

    I have had this app for quite some time. Nearly 2 years. I really enjoy it because I'm not always in front of the tv. The news stories are up to the minute in my opinion. Nice job breaking news!

  • Breaking news

    by Rodney Reynolds

    This app keep me up to date with all breaking.

  • Excellent

    by Sandy Shot

    Great to get Breaking News . . . . . . Instantly !

  • Why are the articles sometimes not accessible?

    by Alliemore

    Why do some headings appear without an attached article? I like the fact that I'm getting news instantaneously; however, it fails to deliver when the article is not attached.

  • Great app

    by Midozier

    Very good app, impressed

  • We like it

  • Best of the Beat News Aps

    by Joynergy

    Instantaneous, from your favorite prime news stations. Keeps you up on world events. Keeps you in the know! Love it.

  • Must have..,

    by Missspelljo

    Great app!!

  • great app

    by refocus today!

    the app usually breaks news before other sources, which is great! I'm reserving the 5th star for future link improvements (newer links to stories sometimes don't open)

  • Good app

    by Mdareau

    Gets what I need to know, rapidly
