Ratings and Reviews
Mine is obsessed with horoscopes
Seriously, you supposedly can tell it you don’t like something and it will stop showing you that. Ha! Instead, it now, instead of small articles interspersed, not only headlines it at the top of my page twice as large as any other articles, I get pop up notifications on my phone! I sent feedback about it and never heard back and the problem continues. I wouldn’t leave this kind of feedback without contacting the devs first.
I guess I’ll try reverse psychology on this insane app. Maybe that will work. I really want to like this app and keep it. It’s a good design and very useful. I love the local news and national news. I really like the more objective perspective. If they can fix this issue and the repeating articles it would be a favorite. I’m even going to hang in there a while hoping for a fix; but I will turn off notifications for now.
THE Go-To News App
I love this app because it delivers custom news content in a way that the traditional city newspapers and wire services should have been able to provide years ago. Instead, the locals give you a few local articles and a bunch of fake news/ad content. Then they try to get you to pay for a subscription. No thanks. I will stick with Newsbreak.
I have tried other news aggregators, but Newsbreak has advantages in layout, customization and, most importantly, specialized news content. Most of the articles are available in full length. I can even make my own magazine with articles I collect. I know Apple has a similar service debuting in the next iOS and Im anxious to try it. Until then, Newsbreak is first app I go to for news.
Could have been great (read on)
So I, like so many in the world today, are looking for a reliable source for news without bias and nonsense, something that is not falling into this latest trend of “fake” news (and at least tries to be balanced).
Since the Apple news app has such limited options if you don’t want ridiculous alt-left sources I tried this app.
In 3 of the last 3 days I have been blasted with major story’s that seemed very serious & valid involving the government, and caused me to open the story, which ended up being 100% fake. It was almost like reading a supermarket tabloid that appeared legit and made you think something very serious happened, then once you read you find the headline absolutely was a bait and switch.
This app allows the crap information to come through and appears to allow politically biased and fake foolishness to be displayed.
I will give it a couple more days to ensure it’s not isolated, but the plan is to delete the app if it continues. I’m not interested in games and bs when I want news! (NOTE: I made it a few more hours and 2 more bull crap stories came through,..I deleted it then)
Another thing, I like to be notified when breaking news happens, sadly this app doesn’t allow for custom sounds on the notification, so whatever your txt alert sound is will belong to this app too. Bummer!
