What's New in Version 2.2.1
Great curated news
With so many sources of news and increasingly little time, I've come to rely on somebody smart to help curate the most important stories for me. Dave Pell at NextDraft does a wonderful job convering the most important news of the day, as well as the most interesting stories (which aren't always the same!). The app itself is simply, but very pleasant to use.
App always works
This is one of the best news aggregators out there. Good summaries are provided, and clickbait is largely avoided.
Content is curated, but a difference of opinion is not the same as poor content. All sources are credible, and there's virtually no clickbait.
A daily must read. Yes, it brings an editorial view, but it's a view anchored in facts and it's clear what is the editorial voice versus the story. Plus, the humor is wonderful.
Strongly recommend this app.
