Very biased and not that informative
When I first got this app, I thought it was pretty useful and I'd use it every morning. Now, however, it's very biased and I see pointless news stories that I wouldn't care about. It wasn't real news, I wanted the legit news that I can read and be informed of while hearing both sides of the story and being unbiased. I didn't care about who tweeted what or what clothing line was in stock. I also remember about a week before the Trump's inauguration, the was a story of how Hillary could still become president. I saw this as a sad attempt and a ridiculous story. Sorry, but you lost someone who used your app everyday.
Don't bother with the Tapjoy offer
Just a warning: I downloaded this for an offer from Tapjoy and never got paid. So just a heads up- don't bother.
The app itself is ok. It is a good idea, but I question whether some of this is actually news. A transgender activist? Tina Fey is going to be in a movie? It would be better if it just stuck to important 'must know' news.
The app and icon are nice looking. This could become a 5 star app if it just stuck to real news, and either stopped advertising with Tapjoy, or actually paid out completed offers.
News gets old fast. So if you're gonna get the top eight, most relevant news pieces one time a day, I feel like a 9 year old transgender activist feels like just slightly too much agenda for me.
Really I did want to like this app, it's simple, clean, everything's awesome except for the stories they select. I gave it about a week, and the article above is just one of several A DAY that have a pretty liberal slant- which is okay if you're into that stuff! No judgement, just know what you're getting when you download the app.
