Customer Reviews

Just Keeps Getting Better!

When this app first came out, I had never seen anything like it. New articles every day to inspire kids to love reading the news -- and understand what's happening around the world. My kids were thrilled.

Now the design is smoother and sleeker, and there are tons of new features to like. Spanish translations, twice as many past editions to access, ability to save articles and drawings...

Keep it up, guys! My family ADORES News-O-Matic!

Wonderful introduction to current events for kids

This app does an amazing job of introducing young readers to what's happening around the world. My kids are engaged and involved every day with the news, learning about anything from scientific discoveries, world elections, or the latest on sports.

They're learning to love reading!

This app is amazing! My kids have never seen anything like it and are reading the stories EVERY DAY! I am so grateful that we found News-O-Matic as it has gotten them so excited about reading each day when they come home from school!

My children are ages 8 and 11 and both love it.
