It's Banjo or bust

Ase o/m/g

Normally I refer to multiple mainstream and local news outlets from my laptop to know what's going on around me and the world but with Banjo on my handheld mobile device that process is a much more streamlined experience.

Just wished Banjo would let you select the category/event that gets shown in the main feed versus having to go into the 'more' selection to see the things that interest you the most.

Absolutely amazing! Love it!


I'm sure ppl don't have their TV on all the time, at least I don’t. And when it’s on, it's almost never on the news channel. Banjo is where I can check out news and trends anywhere, anytime. First hand photos, videos and reactions from people at the scene is way more real than seeing it on the news. Absolutely amazing! Love it!

Handy app


Very handy app. Leaving work one day there was smoke on the horizon. A quick look at Banjo and I knew about the major fire between work and home, and that it was right on my normal route home. Minimized my trip home.
