Love it - simple concept, great execution
Does what it does well -- present intelligently summarized articles-- and gets the UI out of your way. Other news apps have nice eye candy, but this looks fine and does what it says it does. It has replaced my CNN app (which has sadly gone way downhill).
Great time saver!
It gives you the summary of what is going on without all the jargon. It has a problem with a few articles, not giving the entire gist of it. However, in general, it is great. This apps saves me time and gives me info
Outstanding does as it says, highly recommend.
