Customer Reviews

Used to be amazing, now it hangs all the time.

Haystack used to be my favorite way to get the day's news, but its ability to function degraded over time to the point that - at least for me - it hangs all the time. It is now almost unusable.

An additional negative is that a few months ago they started asking for login, but they only support "social media" login mechanisms without giving an option to use/create a simple login and password. Given how social media accounts function, more and more people are pulling out of it. Having it as the only means for login is just plain stupid.

I really hope they get their act together, the concept of being able to choose what type of news you get is excellent, and I would love to use Haystack again.

Great news app BUT...

I use this app everyday but I believe there needs to be more independent news sources. It's tough going from CNN to Fox News all morning but other than that; I love it. I would also like to see maybe more science and tech news but great job by the developers! One last thing, can we please lose The Fumble sports cast? 1. The sports news caster is super annoying in the morning and there's hardly ANY sports involved in the clips. More of "The View" gossip type sports news.....bringing this down from 5 to 4 stars

Haystack TV News

Great App. Good news variety. They are responsive to feedback, they are growing, developing, everyday. Have had it for over a year. If it is malfunctioning, let them know in their " feedback" drop down. So for the ipad " expert" review...learn to use the app, and you probably need a new ipad, or you have another tech problem. I run the App on a 3rd generation ipad, no problem.
