What's New in Version 3.7.3
- Fixed issue with app not opening for iOS6 users
- Fixed issue with app crashing because of media previews
- Fixed issue where muted topics would appear if also followed
- Added ability to submit links to editors by tapping on their names
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 local breaking news. Plus now there's live news video for breaking events.
Best news app
This is where I get my news throughout the day - it's the best news app I've had. After the last update it wouldn't open - I emailed in the problem - they actually emailed me back - then fixed the bug - glad it's back!
Great App, one thing though
Love this app. It's great. The only thing I wish it would have is an option just to see the major headlines instead of having to scroll through to find them.
