  • Crash happy

    By Readum
    Used to be a favorite for local news views. Now all it’s good for is to constantly close itself out.
  • To many adds

    By Id01T
    Way to many adds and a number of links provided take you to articles that require a subscription to access.
  • Good, but removed due to...

    By jl513
    App provides location-relevant information, but little room to customize. Not only does it repeat headlines from different sources, but you can’t turn off comments which can be really annoying, and you can’t customize notifications so every news is pushed as breaking news.
  • Racism at its finest. Great for white suprematist

    By Bigdstacks
    Way too much hate language in the comments. They doing nothing but put out race baiting articles. They do nothing to police the comments. Try Flipboard. This app is garbage.
  • Great local news

    By Texan in PA
    I read this several times a day. Hate the ads. But give to get.
  • Great information and in a instant!

    By Duragaugeman
    This is the best way to get news and information instantly I have come to count on this daily
  • Was much better before all the updates

    By Won'tsubmitreview
    Great app for variety of news sources. Since these last couple updates, however, it does not add new news stories as quickly or as often as it did previously. No longer my ‘go to’ for most current news. Very disappointing
  • Ads, ads and more ads

    By Traj
    Did I mention ads? Every 3rd or 4th “story” is an ad. If that’s not bad enough, they’re the same one. Plus its usually a picture of some disgusting unwanted image. There are a few interesting articles mixed in, but it’s not worth it.
  • Great concept but very spammy with intrusive ads and uninteresting gossip

    By Guy 7 billion
    Downloaded the app excited about being able to keep up with news events in the cities closest to me. Seemed like a pretty good setup at first, although you can only choose 1 city/town that you are interested in receiving news about. Then you quickly start noticing how spammy and continuous the (completely irrelevant) ads are throughout the “news feed.” And how glutted with NON LOCAL news the feed is. There is tons of celebrity gossip on everything from foreign royalty to kardashians fridge content - completely useless garbage! Even after you go through the hassle of trying to click on links to say you are not interested in those topics or outright “blocking” content from that source, you continue seeing more identical content from other sources or the exact same ads! Hopefully they can fix these frustrating points as it could be a great app, but right now I am very close to deleting it and looking for something better.
  • Comments not screened

    By invrwrterevws
    The news feed is awesome however the app does nothing to regulate the comments which are over the top racist by anyone’s standards. Those users should be removed from the app and the comments removed as well at a minimum. Be better!
  • Local breaking news

    By Mutha Ma
    Amador county is local idiots
  • Great, but lots of ads

    By Dhvdhcdjce
    I’d love to see a paid version where you could use the app ad-free. It’s a great app with great content if you can get past all the ads.
  • Crash

    By Bearsmom515
    Your update was a joke! This app constantly crashes!
  • News break is Awesome!!!

    By KillaKelly187
    Best news app ever!
  • Delays

    By Ray R. 78
    Your notifications for new stories will pop up 2-3-4-5 hours after something has happened.
  • News Break

    By Franklinton
    I love it! It’s well written and always up to date!
  • Great summary of News

    By Sabu234
    This is a really good source of news updates that I am interested in receiving. To the point and no sifting through streams of headlines.

    By WWindle88
    Do we really need this article?
  • Meh

    By SaraMcD
    I like the idea of a local news app, but I seem to get a lot of alerts for sensationalist headlines from the next city over. Wound up uninstalling.
  • Liberal bias

    By Mwjncole
    Love the format, but hate the liberal bias, how can person believe any of your posts, if you omit news that should be posted, just because you don't post the crimes of Hillary doesn't mean they aren't happening. Plus to many articles linked to star tribune, which you need to purchase to view.
  • Crashes Constantly.

    By tBasco
    Crashes constantly when you use it. Can’t block certain news feeds.
  • 😀👍

    By sweething1227
    Love it
  • Awesome

    By blueangel5919
  • Just not Right.

    By haider560
    The articles I have been familiar with have been written poorly. Should understand that when someone is charged with something they are considered innocent until proven guilty. To much hear say in the articles. Just like one where the man was charged with having sex with a 6 year old. Was totally a lie yes he was charged but at the end of the day they tried to get him to take custody of that child. It was not his child But the parents were not fit. But people who read the write up only know he was charged for sex with a 6 year old. Try to get a job after that. Its the news agency s business to make sure about what they are saying and to updated and not add their personal spin on it.
  • It’s good but...

    By emuir99
    I have no complaints accept when I want to look at an article. It won’t redirect me to the entire article to continue reading it. Only shows the first 4 lines, then I have to actually google search the article to continue reading it. Kind of a pain
  • Overload

    By mjwlg
    Too much is centered on Markle, Duggar’s and Sister Wcives, paRtdiculrly creepy Kody.
  • It’s alright

    By Last King 5
    It’s was dope at first but when you hit read more and get to the comments on the article this app allows entirely too much racist people to comment on it
  • The good and the bad

    By Hutchday
    Ok for local news coverage but also keeps giving news from my township but different STATE
  • Too many alerts

    By dewlolly
    I want to be able to adjust the alerts . They go off every 15 minutes. Starting at 7am.
  • Great Content, but a Battery Kill

    By Good_Neighbor
    I have an I-Phone 6S and this app would wipe out my battery whenever I used it. The content was great, my phone just couldn’t sustain the battery drain.
  • Old news

    By Fresno 1
    Some of the alerts they set up come in 24 hours after they are posted to the site. So if there is a foggy day alert for Thursday I am sure to get it Friday. 😒
  • Dumb

    By lc012477
    Keeps crashing over & over every time I’m reading an article, then the app just closes. Worthless app. Also, it’s ridiculous that you HAVE to have a Facebook account to write a comment. Not everyone wants to be associated with that liberal crap of a social network. I'm deleting this app. Also, I wouldn't call CNN & the rest of the liberal, lying media a trusted news source. They are all corrupt liars not to be believed or trusted anymore.
  • Need to work on sifting through disgusting comments.

    By Nisa😇
    Need to work on disgusting comments on black people
  • Great App, but...

    By KnyghtStyk
    I really love the app, but lately it has started shutting itself down while I’m reading an article. If not for that issue, I would have rated the app a five star.
  • It is convenient.

    By Lvstk
    I agree that it’s nice and easy to read the news from your phone however if you want to get the truth about politics at a government level this is not the place to get it. Look at OANN. Channel 347 on Direct TV and also on A&E. This news app is very left sided and often uses fake news from CNN among others.
  • Disgruntled About this App

    By xoktxitsitsitz
    I just last night bought a subscription to our local news thru this NewsBreak app and I still can’t read anything but yet they are gonna take my money each month, I don’t think so! I want my Acct cancelled!!!!

    By Flying bee
    I have to delete it because it was messing up my phone the volume on video . When I watch them .
  • Too short no very accurate

    By Carlucho F
    Too short texts no very accurate
  • It’s Alright but fix your app!

    By fsantiago1979
    I like the news aggregation but fix your app. I can’t stand trying to scroll multiple successive times and having it not recognize my finger touches. Has happened across 3 different iOS devices, so it’s not me. But otherwise it’s pretty good.
  • Good App but No Way To Edit Your Comments

    I gave it 2 stars because you cannot edit your comments; you can either add another line to highlight a correction or delete and re-write. Also, there are times that your comments are duplicated by no fault of the writer. If they could fix those issues I would give it 4 stars.
  • Convenient and unbiased

    By derek-derrick-dereck
    I love this app! It keeps me updated on all current events by notification banners. If I see a headline that interests me I click and read on.
  • Why no search?

    By ProfessionalK
    They get one star because they don’t allow me to search topics. What were they thinking? I have topics I am interested in and they don’t let me find out about them.
  • Worst app of all time.

    By Cost 1200
    Please do not download this app, if you do you will get cursed out by people you don’t know, and you have no control, you try to block content, that does not work, on the site, people responding, are very explicit, too much cursing, app designers do not control that language, totally unacceptable, this app is dangerous, worst app of all time..
  • Repetitive, Buggy, Deleted

    By red_dev99
    While I appreciate what this app tries to do, it falls short. Repetitive: The same news story (and advertisement) appears multiple times in just a few scrolls - same story, different picture/slightly (modified headline does not constitute a new story). Buggy: When I click on a story (or sometimes when I click 2-3 times to get to the actual source AND if there’s no a subscription required), page scrolling does not work properly - a minor flick rolls you to the top or bottom of the page. Deleted: Best way to experience this app.
  • Picture and titles

    By shanesquires
    Democrats snowflakes. This news feed is garbage 🇺🇸.
  • Racist Troll Land

    By Tam Tam 225
    No thanks. I’ve had this app for less than a month and I am disappointed at the level of racism allowed to go unchecked. Victim blaming and just way too many vile miserable people congregating in the comments.
  • Not a fan

    By BeditaSZ2000
    Random collection of news stories and extremely rude, divisive comments. Not for me.
  • Read more

    By sbcderg
    Wouldn’t it be nice if when you and you Touched to read more. That article was available to read and not A bunch of other crap Can’t find. My article. So delete your App
  • Ruined news app

    Why did you push these videos on now
