This app is creative and a phenomenal idea. It combines everything I look at in the morning, but it started out strong and hasn't followed through. I would love to see the news update and show more than 5 articles. Same goes for the stock. Although I can see how that could be away for making someone use another app for the more detailed information. All in all it is pretty neat. Oh and a white or light gray background would be cool.
Keeps checking location!
Today I noticed that this app checks my location every minute, even though the app is closed (not active in the background) and there is no "refresh in the background" setting. This is not good for battery life! I have turned off location checking now and am waiting for an update before I turn it on again!
Weather, News, Reminders, and Calendar, all organized on a simple and single screen.
