  • Nothing but sensationalist push alerts.

    By PassatBoi
    “most Covid patients have these symptoms! Open to find out what they are” “your state may be added to this watchlist. Open the app to find out.” “We’ll tell you which household product could kill you in your sleep. Open the app to find out.”This app is nothing but sensationalist push alerts designed to make you open the app. When you do, it’s all click bait and ads. Don’t waste your time.
  • Bugs

    By Daortes
    Down loaded app due to high rating and I a, very disappointed. You scroll you run into bugs with the way the articles move. Some links don’t work. I have tried deleting and downloading again but still run into bugs. I am posting this and going to delete the app.
  • Extremely biased material

    By Hollaifyouaballa
    This site leans so far left. Disappointed in the lack of substance. It’s all trump hate and propaganda.
  • Not Ready

    By Jon jon 111
    I want to leave Twitter but this app is a pain. I’ve given up several times. Guess I’ll try again in a few years
  • Slanted

    By Not Romney
    I have had this app for a year and find it as well as 99% of comments to be slanted and basically not informative, just right wing trash. Deleting.

    This appDoes not open from Facebook to the object or news that is shown on Facebook. This app really is not good.
  • Mixed Bag - A Place for Haters

    By sleep deprived guy 222
    I admit it’s convenient for acting as a clearinghouse for local news headlines. However, the negatives outweigh the positives in my opinion. First, a number of the national articles are from questionable resources. This includes some sources about COVID-related articles that cause undue panic with articles over the past few months that have urged readers to sanitize the soles of their shoes and hypothesizing that farts pass COVID germs. There have also been too many sports and entertainment articles that amount to what people refer to as “clickbait” by having shocking headlines that provide virtually no real news. In all of these instances, it would be better if they’d use more reliable resources that actually present news and information. Worst of all though....the comments. I have seen nothing short of pure venomous hatred spewed in the comments section here in each and every article. I’ve never seen anything that resembles an ounce of respectful commentary or dialogue on here. Maybe people would be more respectful if one had to link a Facebook account that at least partially confirms a person’s identity. I respect freedom of speech, but I’m not going to personally support an app that’s used to communicate so much racism, sexism, ethnocentrism, and overall hatred. That’s ultimately why I’ve sacrificed the convenience and have deleted the app.
  • Excellent news

    I would like to you include Latinoamerica News
  • Comments Section

    By Review by Eric32
    The news part of the app is wonderful but you will also get to see the divisiveness and tribalism and people true colors in the comments section. So much hate and vitriol. Thoughtful debate and dialog is not to be found here. I know it’s the user option to click the comments but reader beware it’s overwhelmingly negative. Beware the worst of humanity lives in the comment section. Maybe the developers can add a toggle switch to the comments section.
  • Used to like it

    By haider560
    But recently you can’t see the comments that people like. You can only open the ones that people actually comment on. I find it most interesting to see how people feel about subjects I care about. Thinking of switching to another news app. Maybe I won’t be able to comment but oh well. Just tired of being done like this.
  • Tax Freeze

    By Craig Tax Freeze Freis
    great up to date info
  • One sided

    By Chevy540
    Pretty much ran by democrats
  • Here is where all the people from 4Chan went

    By Bigdstacks
    Allows blatant racist comments to stand, so it has attracted nothing but racist propagandist. This app is garbage.
  • Won’t let me see which comments people like

    By idontevencare99
    I can’t click on the person who liked my comment! It’s kind of annoying! I can reply back to people, but that’s it. Please fix it
  • To much notifications and to much trump fan

    By get yt studio
    I get way to much notifications,MORE THEN MY OTHER APPs to much trump fan if u get outraged a lot about the blm or covid or trump then ooooo this is not the app bahaha. Be safe
  • Are all people this nuts, or just ones who use this app?

    By ggamesmanship
    There’s a lot of hate going on in the comments with this one. Gotta get rid of it.
  • Too many adds!!!!

    By Tony f188
    Could have been a great app but the adds block everything you are trying to read!
  • Racist people

    By 1239183636
    They should not have a comment section on here all it does is bring out all the racist people for them to attack and fight with everyone on here when you try to block someone it doesn’t even block them and they can verbally abuse you or verbally tell you that they wanna hurt you.WhenYou try to report them they absolutely do nothing!This news app should be shut down
  • Good news source

    By nativeoak
    So glad for internet. Most newspapers are “fake news”
  • TinaT

    By gmatiny1
    Junk being put on as news when it’s just a jerk hawking his girlfriend as a social media star . Then guy makes sexual comments on writers who answer they don’t care.GIVE US REAL NEWS NOT GARBAGE !!!
  • Too many ads

    By lucky122797
    No content false click bait ads not worth my time and junks up my time
  • Review

    By Lynnette1224
    Got ur app for more news of my area (state) not national. Thanks
  • Had for a while going down hill

    By ScarletRed89
    Loved app how it became personalized to area and still gave worldly news. But it gets annoying to type on a story to read to an ad always popping up. When a top story pops up on notifications I expect to be able to click it and read not wait through the ad of games, or useless apps.
  • Late news

    By Rhino Dino
    This app has gotten really bad about posting news that is two to three days past and saying it is late breaking. Not current at all!!
  • Very Political and Liberal

    By texascoffeemom
    This newspaper is against Trump and is very liberal, they put their opinion in every article and make sure that you know that they do not like the President. I’m disappointed in how they write and some of their articles are inappropriate in the world we live in today. It is very sad!
  • App

    By kkr516
    Great app!
  • Missing news

    By Sofia5951
    I am noticing that many news stories you choose to report on are actually leaning one way. Where are the news reports regarding the doctors that had a news conference yesterday regarding medicine that can help with the virus? They called Fauci out so it’s not news worthy? I giving you one day before I remove your app. Telling my friends as well.
  • Fake news everyday

    By Imbeatrix
    Wanted an app to update me with local news but I keep getting notifications on news that’s not relevant to my area or interests. Also pushed me with news from unreliable sources as well as very biased news that are attacking another country or politicians trying to create fears in public. I was hoping for an app that could provide me with a global view or of general news / news from different perspectives or based on facts at least, instead of conspiracy news about how our country is under attack or how awesome/ awful our leader is etc.
  • Racist agenda pushing app

    By elchokobbc
    It’s horribly obvious
  • Frustrating

    By cici js
    Usually the first page is a recap of the headline blurb without any details. To get more, you have to go to another site — or more than one. Some of the sties are “subscription required”. Not worth the time. If it’s not in the headlines, I don’t go further.
  • Still bias

    By JR. Ewing
    Yeah yeah yeah. It’s “news” stories from all points of view. Doesn’t change the fact that 9/10 “headlines” are from leftist outlets and the few articles from right leaning publications are usually about things that have nothing to do with politics so they keep your mind focused on their narrative. Not to mention there are TONS of articles far far left outlets that are complete trash. Great for local news. I will give them that. Still more left wing leaning bias for the large percentage of lazy Americans that can’t think for themselves. Yawn
  • Annoying app

    By Alex321509
    Most annoying app , it won’t shut up about stimulus checks. Get a notification every 5 minutes.
  • Great news app newest news fast

    By dreamer97141

  • The best

    By AC180

  • News break app

    By Zs nimrod
    There sources r sorry, racebaiting, they piss me off, stick to the local news,
  • Going to stop receiving soon if these adds continue.

    By Otis122456789
    News is ok. But when your trying to read a story and as you scroll down to continue reading the story gets lost in all the advertisements and as hard as I look for the rest of the story. IT IS NOT THERE......
  • Should be called the left sided news app

    By mike hawk 3
  • Terrible App!

    By Dug B Daddy
    When trying to read a story that takes you directly to this app and you try to push the “read more” button, it spirals out of control to some other stuff. Not user-friendly and also does not provide the ability to read the story that I want to read. This is a piece of junk, and I did not get a chance to read the story that I was really interested in.

  • McDonald’s closing restaurants

    By Pete444444

  • Getting there

    By Covid Elvis
    Headlines are always better than the story. Need more work to become a legitimate source of current news
  • Not so good

    By Frustrated to the hilt
    Geesh. Too many ads. Too many false links. Close to worthless.
  • Poor Performance

    By coldhome
    Consistently showing articles that are not from my location. Blocking feature does not work.
  • Click bait and biased news

    By NoFake news
    Click bait headlines and very biased news.
  • Great news, but awful comments

    By blkprl73
    The local news is great, but the negative, racist and ignorant comments are sickening. To know that people can be so cold hearted in times as now is truly mind blowing. Keep up the good work with your informative new.
  • Delete

    By owen 2024
    Why when I want to block a certain site, see less about Donald trump shows up?
  • Opinions Should Be Titled as Opinions

    By Catmakescakes
    Not all of your stories are fact based and done come right out and propose what’s right and wrong. Keep your opinions to yourself and just report facts.
  • Stupid

    By Bertsr88
