Customer Reviews

Science news at its best!

While you can get science news at any major news website, the news there is mostly just headlines and brief reviews of scientific discoveries.

This app is outstanding if you are looking for an app that delivers the latest in physical science news and you want a more detailed report of what happened as well as where to get more information.


This app is great for getting news that you can use. Too many news apps skim over science news or only report hype. This app helps me get a jump-start on science news that often the mainstream news sources won't pick up for days--if they pick it up at all.

Run Away!

The "lite" version is a fine, if hobbled, science news reader. I ignored the negative reviews and bought HD. Mistake. It runs once after installation, period. If I close and reopen, it crashes immediately, every time. If I delete and reinstall, it works another one time. There's no support nor response. FIX THIS APP!

UPDATE: My original review was in 2012. It worked for a while in 2014 but now in 2015 it's back to the same behavior I described above.
