Quick News Bites In Playlist

So I got Watchup about four months ago and it’s gone through a couple versions since then. They’ve made small but significant tweaks in each version, especially correcting bugs. What I really appreciate about the app is that I can personalize my newscast sources. For a while I was getting my news from my Facebook feed but there’s always some sort of crazy bias inserted into those stories but I never really felt like the news on TV related to me specifically. That’s what makes Watchup so great. I can select the sources I feel are most relevant or trustworthy. I can also follow tech or gaming, which always have fun stories that I don’t necessarily seek out on my own. And then there’s of course the fact that it is a playlist. I can have my phone playing in the background while I make food or when I’m getting ready. But mostly I binge watch short news clips. On my own schedule which is super convenient. One thing to remember though, need to make sure internet connectivity is strong or else you might run into issues. Also having lots of programs running in the background slows down your phone overall so it’d be good to exit out of them. 5 out of 5

Nice app- except for your pic of Hillary Clinton in your details

I like the App.. But can you please remove the photo of Hillary Clinton (2 photos of her) from your "app-details"... It's not a good first impression at all for those of us who like another candidate. She's the last person many of us want to see! Please at least balance your "details info" about your app with also a conservative politician pic.. // I was looking for some specific videos-- and I keep getting Sports videos.. I believe I have all the correct settings--- not sure what I'm doing wrong.. Otherwise nice new News video app.. // How about offering some positive news too about Donald Trump..(?)..

Perfect app for cable cord-cutters

After cutting the cord, about the only thing I missed was putting on CNN or Fox News as "white noise" when I'm around the house doing stuff. This app, once it learned my prefs and I'd groomed it with the (easily applied) thumbs ups or downs, has given me exactly that kind of news channel stream I missed. I also like how easily I can swipe through a story I'm not into. I often use this app on an iPad as my kitchen and it can also, of course, be sent to the TV with AirPlay. I don't write too many reviews here, but I feel this one might be a bit of an overlooked gem, and for me at least, it's an absolute essential.
