The quality of news is deteriorating!


I’ve been using InShorts since the day it launched, and have been a big advocate of its style of news delivery and other features of the app.
While I see that the app is continuously improving, the content quality is gradually deteriorating.
First off, the personalisation under “My Feed” is really broken. You guys need to fix the algorithm behind this, since the news under My Feed is nothing but “Most Popular” rather than what I typically would like to read.
Secondly, what’s up with the increasing number of snippets just being “User tweets ... about ....”? It is extremely disappointing to see random people tweeting random things about random events being covered as “News”. Set some standard for yourselves guys, you are disrupting the way news is consumed in this age, and quality content should by your primary goal. I am uninstalling the app purely because I am fed up of multiple rehashes of the same news, boring “trending” topics, any and every celebrity activity passing off as news, and in some cases - rather opinionated news snippets that are not “just facts”.
Hoping to return to this, once you guys get your content sorted

Good app but need the following 👇


Overall it's a very nice app, short and precise. There are a few problems with the UI:
1. Suppose I have viewed 20 posts out of 50 total and then I visit the app, which somehow restarted and refreshes itself, then I can view 10 new posts, then for viewing the earlier 30 pending posts I need to keep on swiping up until I reach the unread news. So for this, if you want then you can implement a sidebar in landscape mode which can have just the headings along with bright and faded fonts for unread and read posts respectively.

You guys have designed the app really well but this small implementation can really outshine every other app. Being a developer myself I know it's not that big thing to implement.

2. Implement support for iOS smart invert. People are liking dark theme for everything on their iPhone X which saves battery on OLED and also is easy on eyes. Other black/grey phone owners will also appreciate it.
