Without question, NextDraft is the best way to get a detailed and terrifically funny and insightful summary of the day's news.

Dave's commentary continues to be spectacular, but now the articles are much more easy to read. NextDraft is amazing on all formats.
Go ahead and download this app - especially the new version. You will love it.
I'm so confident that if you don't, I'll personally refund the cost of the app.
One of the most consistently funny one man news shops out there. You've gotten this far, now get the app.
Personal issue: I thought I'd give myself a year to recover, but last year's NextDraft brand iconography unification project still hurts. While I appreciate the sentiment - another iconic icon with a superhero on my homes screen (you're not getting a contract with Marvel) - I miss the totally wack, disrespecting of icon conventionality of the old. Can we get a poster or something?
perfect blend of info and personality
I honestly don't know how Dave does it. But he manages to put together a solid list each day of news, with his own flavor and personality thrown in. It's rare that I don't add two or three links to Pocket after reading the blurb in NextDraft.
In the age of algorithms, it's refreshing to see an actual human put together what has become an invaluable source of information.
