Break out of your social media filter bubble with Read Across The Aisle!

In the app, you can read news from a variety of sources, and it shows you the political orientation of each source.

Read Across The Aisle also shows you the cumulative political orientation of your reading history.

Most importantly, the app detects when you've just been reading from one side of the aisle and occasionally reminds you to check out news from another angle.


We value your privacy and do not gather any personal information whatsoever. Of course, this means we're also not selling, renting any personal reading data (since we collect have any). What you read is your business, not ours!

The political orientation rating for each source is based on public opinion polls and other data. If you have questions about ratings, or anything else, you can email us!

Great concept

I REALLY like the concept of having a diverse selection of news sources to read from. This is going to be a well-known app that many people will enjoy. I do have some suggestions; 1.) Whenever I leave an article it doesn’t save my spot where I was reading, I have to go through and search for the article again. This task becomes very tedious. 2.) I would also like a more clear indication of what “side” I am reading on. Thus, allowing me to set goals like “Read two Articles on the Liberal side today and two articles on the conservative side.” 3.) Creating a profile of all my save reads would be tremendous, I know the coding for that can be tricky, but I would love that and I am sure others users would as well. 4.) *Friends* Allow me to have friends, so I can see what they are reading as well as be able to send articles there way. I look forward to seeing this adjustments!


Lock and reminder is annoying

I like the idea and layout of this app, but the execution is a bit annoying. I am making an attempt to read across the aisle by using this app to just read "red" articles. However, the (free) app thinks I should be alternating sides and reading from "blue" articles just as much as "red" ones and locks the app when I don't alternate enough. I have easy access to nytimes and huffpo, I don't need to read these on your app.

Great idea, poor execution

I downloaded this app in hopes of keeping my political readings in check. Layout is decent, I enjoy the gradients. My big beef though is that this app is slow, lags and locks up frequently, and heats up my phone. Strange, for an app that is seemingly just displaying text. Memory leaks? Heavy background tasks? Get it fixed! I'm enjoying he app but it's practically unusable.
