Quick headlines

I had to return to upgrade my rating. I now begin and end my day with this app and have come to really appreciate the alerts (although after the last update, I keep being told I have multiple alerts when in fact nothing new has appeared). It provides headlines, so no network bias, and a link if you need more info. Lately they've included more photos, which is great. Very handy on ipad. I can't say enough good about this app.

I love this app!!!!!

GREAT news app!!! I can always count on this news app to bring me ALL the latest, most up to date news info around the world. I love that I can open links and news sources when they are provided with the updates. Can't say enough great things about it. Thx !

Blazing fast with breaking news

It's nearly always first with the story, ahead of other news apps. I travel a fair amount, and the app moves with me, alerting me to breaking news wherever I go. Highly recommended.
