Customer Reviews

Works fine, and is VoiceOver friendly!

The app works fine for me. It issues alerts for the key words I’ve entered.

Best of all, this app is usable with the VoiceOver screen-reader, so visually impaired users can rest assured that this app will not be a waste of time or money.

My only criticism is that I don’t receive alerts every day - as I’d expect. I’m guessing there is a server-side issue causing this behavior.

Overall though, this app is a keeper in my opinion for tracking important news stories associated with a specific subject.


Sends push notifications about every 3 hours. Very reliable. Good app.


Having paid for the ap, I resent having to contend with ads and "surveys".

Does not seem to be comprehensive. Only finds one article per topic per day.
