Fastest news app

Refreshing way to get breaking news. Seriously fast and love being able to get alerts for my city and mute stuff i don't want.

Problem Solved *****

Back to 5 stars for the best & most up-to-date news app available.

Kudos to the developers for their quick response to the crash issue!


This app USED to be good

So I relied on this app to alert me to breaking news. But ever since the redesign, it's just crap.

In the last 24 hours, I've gotten alerts from the Stitcher podcast app about Ukraine, the Florida daycare issue, and the stabbing in Pennsylvania. And what does Breaking News alert me to? That Colbert is taking over for Letterman. Total crap!!
