#1 source for breaking news
I decided to download this app thru word of mouth. This app is by far better than some of the other news agencies on reporting news as its happening. I use multiple news apps such as AP, Reuters, Fox, & CNN. This breaking news app, I'm able to get breaking news faster than other media outlets. Much faster than AP and CNN. I would recommend to other users who follow the news to use this app
A must-have for news alerts
I have a bunch of news apps, but in some ways this one tops them all. For major breaking news, this app usually beats all the other news apps. And this one has some 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.
I was skeptical at first about this app as there is no major news agency behind them. But that means they can break news sooner, or even less confirmed. It's a great app! It is not spamming, breaks news faster than any agency and is easy to use. It's great to get breaking news when they are only on Twitter yet. Good job!
