The BEST Everything International PLUS Local News App!!
This is the only app I have found so far that really has it ALL especially really good local news.
It allows each user to post the current events so that helps to get a clear picture of events as they progress.
Someone may hear Something strange & post. Later there may be an update telling you if the event was something say if next someone posts there's police activity. Later you may see a connected news article to the event. Everything from crimes to Fires, gunshots, traffic Accidents & earthquakes.
Another helpful feature if you live in a populated area is the traffic updates. Very simple & easy to use.
You also get international news as it progresses with a clear timeline.
Very well organized & easy to use - I am really enjoying it & using it several times a day. It's starting to be my only news source online!
My default news experience
... It's hard to imagine being more quickly plugged-in.
Love the video - without preroll ads means you're seeing breaking news ASAP. Don't see how you get faster.
East to personalize - and it will change the way you keep informed entirely. Follow what you care about (mute the rest) and know what's happening nearby. Like nothing else.
Nearby feature is a hidden gem.
Best news app I've tried
I'm a bit of a news junkie. And I love this app! Typically faster with the news than the other news apps and pages and they cut out the duplication that seems to plague the rest. I only see what's actually NEW in the news. Also, the breadth of coverage is legit. Oh, and the nearby and "tip nearby users" feature is awesome, btw. Thanks!
