Latest upgrade won't even open!
Quickest push notifications!
Breaking News is the first news app to send a push notification 99.99% of the time. I have ABC News, BBC News, CNN News, Fox News, and NYT Now all installed on my iPhone, and none of them are as quick as Breaking News when it comes to push notifications.
If you were a huge fan of Circa like I was before they shutdown, this is the next best news app on the App Store.
It would be awesome if they added more options and customizations in the app settings. That's the only improvement I can think of. This is such a great app!
