Mostly Back to Being Great
This app provides a great way to get personal summaries of the big news stories of the day, without a bunch of useless opinion and commentary.
I previously left a negative review of Zolt because it had gone from being updated daily to receiving no updates for about a week. Apparently the company was in the process of being acquired. The app is updating again, so I am upping my review back to four stars. I will update again if there are any significant changes with the acquire.
Where'd you go??
I got this app around Oct/Nov and loved it. Perfect for quick updates to stay in the know. But at the start of Dec the last news article said they were making upgrades to back end systems and would be back on the 23rd. Still haven't seen any new news. No recent reviews or posts from their Twitter. It's as if it disappeared off the face of the planet. What happened?!?
Need mor news
I love love love this app. However, it doesn't update the stories regularly. The last week it maybe only updates two or three times. For example, today it still has the same stories from two days ago. If this would update daily, it would be a 4 star app.
