  • Absolutely the best!

    By Larry.McJ
    With the latest update, SmartNews went from 5 stars to 10 stars! The long awaited dark mode is here and and is absolutely gorgeous! Now the best news app is also the best looking. My tired eyes thank you.
  • Notifications

    By Lapasinski
    Like it lets me now what happening now! Also love how it changes when I go to a different place and lets me know what’s going on around me!!
  • If you don’t subscribe your dumb!

    By LilBeesMom
    Best news app ever! I have access to so many different types of news from serious politics and current (nationwide and local events) everyone should be reading about. And, I mean that wholeheartedly! As well as articles that make you laugh if you’ve read a sad story and need to smile and access to news I don’t believe you’d hear anywhere else unless you looked for it. I suggest trying it for yourself because everyone is different but I believe this is one of the smartest subscriptions I’ve ever paid for. Hands down! Read for yourself...
  • Pretty much unusable

    By mcknight1976
    After two updates ago I think. All new articles skip to the bottom of the page after reading a bit. Then u scroll back up and read some more and bang back to bottom again
  • Mr pat

    By holler rat
    I like the local an national news also the great coverage of news.
  • Love the local updates.

    By MuggVicious
    When ever something is happening around town it seems as though break news is no more then 4 mins from the details. Notifications keep me in tune and alert. Definitely a app to have, I love it.
  • Good app.

    By Sunthebun1
    It’s a good app for local news but it doesn’t have dark mode.
  • Breaking News

    By Zturn14
    Try sending stuff a little earlier. I don’t know about all the others, just the 275 wreck and other things were the day or hours before.
  • Gracias

    I love getting the alerts and updated news
  • New area

    By my two sons
    I had heard bad things after I moved here so I thought I would get the local of his spirit Victorville Apple Valley news so that I would know what was going on, wow there’s a lot going on and not much of it is good or you just don’t hear as much about the good it’s kind of disheartening. It’s still better than a lot of places, And it’s still worse than a lot......
  • News or paparazzi? Terrible

    By shutupdick
    They send really bad newsbreaks that are not breaking news. Like the boy who o my eats Mac n cheese???? You’re wasting my battery over things that aren’t even news let alone worthy of a notification . Worst news app ever. How do you mix true news like a hurricane or kidnapping with mac n cheese? I never give reviews but this app is not worthy and is being deleted now.
  • Need to fix the links

    By Alc823
    Great new app but when I click on something it never brings me to the page is there a fix for that
  • Where’s the Good News?

    By juhlzie
    I’d like to see stories on positive news- good things happening locally- nationally. Does every news reporting platform need to blast - shootings- murders- killings- crimes- etc??? Where’s the real news that uplifts society?
  • Pop ups and word games

    By Un informed
    I have tried to deal with the glitchy crap here thinking it was the fault of my old iPad but after speaking with others I find that we all suffer with the same issues. You try to sensationalize the articles with wording that indicates exaggerated or false content. If you want to read it many times you are linked to sites that want you to subscribe to their podunk newspaper that you'll never need again, and at a cost. The article is near impossible to read in some cases because the pop ups. Today I try to open the map to locate the RV Park in question and I couldn't see street names and everything I tried moved the map to another state. Right now I can't continue the review because the key pad is over the written portion so you can't see what you write. Good luck peddling this snake oil. Real news is located elsewhere.
  • racism is very alive on this app

    By lizz7219
    I only give this app two stars since it can take a while to load and there are ads. The real reason I give this app two stars is the amount of racism and hate on the comments. I am honestly so disturbed that this isn’t monitored in any way.

    By beachbucks
    There’s more fake LIBBY “news” on here than ANY OTHER MEDIA!!! Shame on this app!! It’s gone from my feed!!!

    By Gpantherfan
    I like getting the local news for my specific area.
  • Sadistic News

    By 987Atty
    If you are into sadistic news that highlights the very worst in human nature, this app is for you. No shortage of sordid reports of rape, murder, pedophiles, domestic abuse lined with click bate ads This app should be renamed SICKO NEWS.
  • Great app

    By SeansSneakers
    Shows news in my town
  • Disappointing App

    By Mimi&Hannah
    This app will drive you nuts. It’s very unstable and ads pop up all over the place, usually on top of the article you’re trying to read. Terrible 😐
  • Great Coverage

    By matuj
    I prefer this over mass media, because locals always know the real scoop. Keep up the good work!

  • Ads😤😤

    By itsling
    Constantly flips to the bottom of the page as it loads ad after ad so that it is impossible to read an article!! There are far better news apps!!!
  • Needs dark mode

    By Kimtoto11
    This app is really cool and I use it daily for getting my news. It’s just REALLY needs a dark mode option.
  • “REAL NEWS” 24/7

    By beeigTEXX
    REAL NEWS! beat news app that you will always be informed on the latest reports. Best of all is you get the reports from the local papers. Stories that effect your life, that’s what “ real news “ is suppose to be. I don’t need an opinion, I need the facts.
  • Great app!

    By Soft Peach
    I love the news that is given everyday. You get stories that are happening at the moment and stories that the regular news does not give. This app also keeps you informed about past news stories that there is something new about the story. Great news source. Glad I downloaded this app.
  • Quick News

    By MwFerrell
    I’m surprised how fast the news stories get put on the news feed. I really like that most of what is post is local and relevant to the area. I give it 5*

  • Nice news but flooded with ads

    By Mr. Jujube
    Really wanting to like this since it gives tons of news locally. However, the amount of ads is really an annoying thing.

  • News Feedback

    By Gbssb

  • Addicted to news.

    By Elenaraaaaaa
    I wish there was a way to read more news from other parts of the planet more often.
  • If it was only a little better.

    By Tim. H.
    This app only gives you two different ways to share their news. Facebook and Your message app. I wish you could share the news on Facebook messenger, there’s no option for that.
  • I love it!
