What’s better than the cheat sheet, you ask? Absolutely Nuttin’!

The solid journalism of daily beast writers is by itself something I would want access to on your phone - and on 1st screen (whatever the word for that is..?). But the thing with this app aside from all the people behind it and it’s own content is the brilliance of the cheat sheet. I realize as I write this that my enthusiasm sounds as though it may require a good curbing, but I tell you ... not the case. The top stories are always updated on the cheat sheet and neato part is that the beast gives you the gists of various top news produced by other outlets with option to read full articles when you have the time and interest in the complete article .... basically you always know what’s up when you check in with the beast and scan the cheat sheet. It gives you more than a headline and less than the complete article because you can’t read everything. It’s just right - concise and current and .... just check it out if apple news and msn news is throwing too much at you and all ya can do is read some headlines and feel overwhelmed and confused keeping track of what you may have want to read later .... and hey, mister beast, if ur listening, I want to say whoever thought of it is a person you should be really nice to because you want to keep them 4-eva!

Excellent weekly news app

I love the Beast because the range of “news” is compelling - history, science, politics, current events, you name it. The app is easy to use, just scroll through the headlines and pick a topic. I like how the progress bars show how much I have read, and how the stories are checked off as I finish them. I call it weekly news because it is not the “latest”, but there are plenty of those, so this fills the gap of background and extraneous news. Love it all, and the app is easy to use.

LOVED until “Beast Inside”

I loved this app. It had some interesting articles and I never experienced any issues with it. But now, almost half of the articles require a subscription—and probably a fee—to read them. Sorry Daily Beast, there is AT LEAST one spelling mistake in each article and the content you publish isn’t THAT good. There’s no way I’m paying to read some poorly spelled, just barely above-mediocre “Beast Inside” articles. And the non-“Beast Inside” articles absolutely don’t justify keeping this app on my phone. I’m deleting this app and I wouldn’t recommend it.
