Blazing fast with breaking news
It's nearly always first with the story, ahead of other news apps. You can get breaking news alerts for just about any interest or place - it's like your own breaking newsroom. Extremely addictive.
Best news app I've found
Wide variety of sources around the globe offers a comprehensive view. Always fresh and fast. If you live in an urban area (or travel a lot), the nearby feed is very handy.
Best way to stay informed
Wastes no time in quickly delivering news as it happens. I can get alerts on any story, and even mute/silence stories that I couldn't care less about.
