What's New in Version 3.8.2
- Improved control of notification settings
- Better Dynamic Type support
Best News App. Beats Apple's
This application is in the top five of all the news applications available for Apple's iPad iPad iPhone. Have been using the app location for over A year and it never fails to work me of important news in the USA and around the world. Their message alert is superb I always wish that it offered more alert categories; but must complement their system when you exceeded the allowable alerts it gives you a listing of your alerts so you could decide which one has priority.
Bottom line this is truly a 10 Star Application & they routinely update the application to keep it at the pinnacle of perfect!
Best news app around
My company pays multiple tens of thousands of dollars for an intelligence service to provide information on breaking stories that may impact our locations. Not only is this app free, it's faster and more accurate. Often times I know about an event 30 minutes to an hour before main stream media reports. I've stopped using our paid service almost all together and use Breaking News. Social media feeds that get routed through here provide almost real time actionable intelligence.
Fastest breaking news out there!
When major stories break - of the many notifications I get, 90% of the time I hear it from Breaking News first.
I seriously monitored my notifications and these guys almost always showed up first by a good 20+ minutes. Same for local stories.
I am giving this 5 stars because it breaks news better than anyone.
However, I find the format and UI a bit clunky. So I usually end up reading the expansive story in other apps.
