What's New in Version 4.4.3
Miscellaneous bug fixes
Not very thorough/doesn't respond to dislikes
This app contains a wide variety of news. However it does not always stick to its subject, for instance, it may have the subject of pandas, but instead of talking about pandas it might talk about cars. It also could use a lot more pictures to make it more enjoyable as an entertaining app. I have found that it does not cover any of its subjects very thoroughly. Also, when you dislike something, it often doesn't give the topics that news quip is about, so there often is nothing you can "dislike". Plus even when you've disliked something, it doesn't remove other quips in the same subject.
Pros and cons. Buggy
(1) Poor curation. I solved this by adding a potload (50 or so) of individually chosen feeds to add to my personal interests.
(2) Poor “learning” of my story-type interests. I’d rather turn off the auto-“learning” but there is no way to do so.
(3) Stories are not strictly presesented in descending chronological order, most recent to older. You may get 1 day ago followed by 2 hours ago.
(4) On reload you usually get sequences of repeated items: ten items followed by those same ten items repeated, and so on.
(5) Too many “sponsored” items. (Ads disguised as news.)
(6) Once you read an item you’ll never find it again, so if you think you’ll want to see it again, load it to your browser and bookmark the original.
(1) Usually fast presentation of stories.
(2) Usual use of “reader” mode: very readable font and styling.
Pros and cons. Pick. You MAY prefer Flipboard.
‘’News” is a bit of a misnomer
This is the best news aggregator I’ve found, but I wonder who’s running the show.
Last Sunday night, October 2, 2017, a terrorist in Las Vegas, USA, killed 59 people and wounded over 500 more in a well planned and well executed machine gun attack from a hotel window. So far (October 4) there has been not one story about the attack in News360.
