Great app for breaking news
It does what it claims to do without difficulties and bugs. Long time user and this is my favorite app for most current news as it occurs. Loving the new feature that allows users to share news around them in real time; looking forward to see what the Devs do with this in coming releases. Breaking news on pace with Twitter; I get news before my friends and family, who now come to me for the latest.
I have a bunch of news apps, but the more I use this one, the more I realize that in some ways 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 there's live news video for breaking events.
This is the best all around news app in the app store. I get breaking news alerts on major stories from this app first before any of the other major news apps. Also, on the "NOW" page, it has lots of up-to-the-minute and most recent news.
