Good news aggregator

Simply is a good news aggregator, but it needs work. I find it very helpful with its simple design and easy to read updates. It generally provides a summary and then allows you the choice to proceed and read the entire story. All of this said, I find the categories very limited. I like to select from a wide variety of news topics, such as travel and environment to specific sports. There are really only 6-7 topics you can select from for your news and this needs work.

Delivers as Promised

Great app—quick, easy to read news feeds that can quickly catch you up on what’s going on in several major news categories. Easy access to more detail for stories that catch your interest. Not the place to do in depth reading. But that’s exactly why I appreciate this app! I just need an unbiased way to get a variety of news in the brief!

My go to news app

I used to love this app. It reminded me of my last "go to" app for news, Sumly. The articles are good, but there are a few things about it that drive me crazy.
1) Several of it’s article sources (LA Times, WSJ,etc) limit you to 10 articles a month.
2) I have yet to understand the algorithm they use to choose the photo that goes with the article works. It could be an article about North Korea and the photo is of some actor or singer. Drives. Me. Crazy.
