I LOVE this app! I get a broad spread of current news and opinions from various sources that provide enough information by topics for me to see issues or news that I want to investigate further. I add topics in my own areas of specific interest, to the basic broad topics provided by SkyGrid. Extremely easy to add, change or delete personally-chosen topics. SkyGrid was extremely useful and relevant during the year prior to the recent elections. I could get current news, unbiased reporting as well as biased reporting (both good and bad) on topics like Republicans, Democrats, Rush Limbaugh, politics, specific personalties, family planning news, etc. from a variety of reputable world-wide sources. It assists me in opinion and decisions, after considering all views --many of which I would not have seen without SkyGrid. And it's zero cost to user, and is bug-free!
Skygrid delivers ! Allows user to customize news sources, provides alerts when updates occur, drill-down options for additional info, photo album of each source as 'teasers' ...... Using a cross section of 'right-left' sources provides user more of a balanced perspective on issues. Best news App!
Anyone that may still be hesitant to convert from print media into the electronic form can make this transition easier using Skygrid. Wide choices of subject matter, easy to understand format, great overviews with 'drill-downs' always available for more specific information. 'Teasers' are also extremely current, at times, hours before more traditional sources offer the news item........ Best news app ever !!
Except for 'crashes' best news source ever.
Returning User - This App Makes Personal News Follow Easy
I stopped using this app under IOS v. 5 due to problems with crashing. I've returned with new iPad and IOS v. 7. Frankly, I missed it because it was the only app that was simple to use while allowing me to define news that I want to follow. There are some tweaks I'd like to see, but overall it is one of my "daily use" favorites. One thing that would be really nice is if I have scrolled down through news articles are view one, return me to the same place in the list (don't like having to start again at the top and scroll back to where I left off in the list). I do like the "new" flag on categories that have new updates. Once you open the category, you're on your own to determine what is new. (generally it is the first item for sure, but not certain after that)
