A different type of news app.


Very cool app for news consumers such as myself. I watch and read EVERYTHING that’s floats down the proverbial propaganda pike - just to see what goes on across all networks. That can be exceptionally exhausting, so it’s nice to have some stories picked/ curated to read - and to hear opinions without getting into an all out battle with my friends or family on Facebook.

Good, definitely some what one sided.


There is a definite bias which I dont think could be attributed to the creators per se, but the rating system of commenters kind of allows a majority rule over the app. It is good they have allowed to block certain commenters, however. I dont think its very productive to not allow replies in that it does not allow any discussion or debate over certain view points and just allows the most popular comments to be shown with no rebuttals.



It took me a minute to get use to this app. It is not like other 'news' apps. It really is a concise version of major news apps with insightful interactions from journalist and many people that are like minded. Very well put together. A widget would be a nice addition so that we can take a quick glimpse at what's trending. Also, would like a sound when getting alerts.
