Very useful news app
I have a bunch of news apps, but the more I use this one, the more I realize that it tops them all. There's some really unique features, like the ability to set news alerts on any topic you'd like and it can scan nearby areas for breaking news. Plus now there's live news video for breaking events.
Best news app
This is the best news app out there to keep up with what's happening in the world. I've tried many different apps, and believe that this one is the best. The fastest alerts for significant news events come from Breaking News. It's sometimes hard to believe how far behind other apps can be.
This app is several minutes ahead of other apps with breaking news. You get quick, straightforward updates without the typical hype you see in TV news.
Once you start getting the news this way, you can't go back. I'm addicted.
