  • Can not uninstall

    By Melballoons
    I can’t figure out how to uninstall this app. I am sick of it. I can no longer open an app in safari and share from its original news source. Would not be surprised if this is a data-mining malware.
  • Working that overtime you say

    By imtz86
    Working that overtime, is more like working hard to add more ads, and now pop ups ads. This ads are taking all the screen on the device. I guess developers want us to read the ads more then to read the article news. FYI the more the ads are promoted the more money the developers get. I gotta say everything is about the money now days. News breaks is more like “ ads breaks onSteroids”
  • Biased

    By Nayjekdjsndb
    I would much appreciate some indication before downloading that this app holds a right wing bias. I thought it was just coincidental at first but I’m consistently getting notifications for clearly biased headlines. Came for local news, leaving bc of sour MAGA losers.
  • You need to fixed bugs

    By its fun to color
    I can’t find one thing about faith or religion or anything about Jesus Christ on news breaks and I don’t know we’re there are at here!!!
  • Fake news

    By suckburg
    Fake news
  • Obnoxious, messy, lacking

    App is poorly made. It’s constantly begging you to turn on notifications with full screen pop ups. There’s no way to search the news. There are also tabs that you can’t organize as well as split columns with both x- and y-axes. Just very amateurish.
  • Great international national and local

    Enlightening for the articles entertaining for the comments

    By 1LessBae

  • News Max is...

    By My Ear Says
    Aside from winning in a landslide, by receiving the most votes ever cast in a presidential election. GSA says that Biden can officially begin his transition. In wake of the news, DOW JONES hits a record high today! Joe Biden will not only be president for those that voted for him, but for all Americans! 😂 Fact: Conservatives are losing voter fraud court cases all across the country due to lack of evidence. It's sad! Fact: (Now Lame Duck President) Trump knew how deadly COVID 19 was in January. Since then 250,000+ Americans have died from it.
  • New break news

    By 2020trumpdrainswp
    This new break app is so bias, completely false. Must be a far left democrat ran platform! Complete garbage!!! I’m switching to new max. They however tell it how it is. Not bias.
  • Counselors

    By LoliBrooki
    Fake news. All of it
  • Good information!

    By LindaSMN
    Good information, but sometimes hard to get to. The second page of the article sometimes won’t load or is missing. There are so many advertisements it’s distracting.
  • Too many fake stories

    By GalacticGaming
    No way to report fake stories!!
  • Fake news

    By lisajskon
    More fake news
  • Will not stop reloading

    By dscar4
    I really like this app. I like how the stories are presented. I don’t see the bias that comes out in main stream media. There is a considerate lack of trigger words aimed at influencing the reader to believe one way or the other. Now for the bad news. When I open a story, the page doesn’t quit loading then it suddenly reloads causing me to have to search for my place in the story. Then the page just goes blank. It frustrating.
  • It the best

  • Fake news

    By Billc17
    They bait you into opening their app so you can satisfy their advertisers, only to find out the news was BS.
  • Too liberal - one sided

    By reader1320
    Always takes a liberal view. Doesn’t give facts in a neutral manner for readers to make their own opinion.
  • It’s good, but…

    By rayindiana
    When I get an alert for a breaking story, if I click on it,I see a few lines of the story, and a spot to click for more. If I click on that,the app opens up and the story is nowhere to be found!Yes, there is a lot of news there, but not the one that peaked my interest! Thanks!
  • Good catch-up!

    By Damayor311
    A great way to answer questions about today’s headlines! Easy to find the answers to your news questions.
  • Frustrating

    By gophre
    Too many adds screwing everything up.
  • All left winged source material

    By Diewhirl
    Try showing either middle of the road material, or material from both sides.. left wing media outlets have gone too far
  • Trump2020

    By DoneTrumpTrain2020
    Didn’t realize you were part of the fake news will be deleting your app Sad that you spread lies. We don’t care about your opinion is we just wanted the facts and evidently you can’t even do that well. 👎🏻
  • Trashy news only

    By penchik51
    This is not local news. It’s shaudenfraud, voyerism, awful coverage.
  • Deleted because I couldn’t get it off my watch

    By ihkjhgfjhtdhg
    They disabled the option to remove getting notifications on your watch so I had to delete it unfortunately

    By Pinklight

  • Ads ads ads! Then no news, just links to more click bait.

    By N8mobiles
    Ads ads ads! Then no news, just links to more click bait. Ads are fine, but should not be all that pops up with no news info.
  • Ads

    By it costs $30/yr
    I’m not going to listen to 30 seconds of ads before I get to the story.
  • Great App

    By TeeJayJay43
    Great app need to remove the ads.
  • Misinformed

    By RachelAnn24
    Newsbreak publishes stories which are often outright lies to intentionally misinform and mislead people. Also, they omit most news with positive, conservative messages which would damage their mission. Pathetic. I’ve only kept the app to see what BS they’re pushing about current events and the election cycle. Good bye!
  • Too liberal

    By Seeker-77
    It really bothers me how one sided this news outlet is!! Yet it seems they have almost all gone the way of Cain!! It’s more about what the liberal left have to say then it is about posting news facts!! Keep your opinions to yourself
  • 100% left leaning stories.

    By Cr8loans
    No diversity.
  • Newsletter WAY Better Than The Site/App

    By %#€£^%^
    The newsletter that you get by email has good local news. The app, and when you click through on articles, the site, are both comprised mostly of lurid news about celebrities and particularly weird crimes or occurrences (i.e. clickbait) and the actual news is distantly secondary. Disappointing.
  • Good local news but too many ads

    By Sirsanket
    Since it opens the pages within the app we have to deal with tonnes of ads which can easily be blocked by ad blockers if opened in Safari. Also the app has started showing full screen ads! That is the last straw. I might as well end up deleting this app with so much potential but annoying because of the ads
  • Important

    By Spacemariens1
    I find a little disturbing about how many people on this app show their anti-LGBTQ+ sentiments. My only request is to monitor the comment section more closely. Other than that the app is fantastic.
  • Trouble with this app

    By SERichsrds
    I like much of what is available on this site but recently it keeps freezing constantly. Also the review section is very touchy and becomes almost impossible to edit a comment. So I’m struggling with this to the point that isn’t comfortable
  • Review

    By C,BI
    Great, timely news stories.
  • Review

    By jade696
    It gives breaking news local and far politically criminal and health with detailed information before I hear it from television and radio
  • Trash

    By Misanthrope™
    I have no idea why this app has such good reviews, unless most of them have been specially requested and rewarded in someway. One irritation that popped up immediately is it would asked me if I want notifications, I say no, within a couple of seconds it asked me again, and I say no again, and then it asks me again, ad infinitum. Text size won’t adjust. Attempts to advertise constantly. Wants to track location. Persistently invasive. More real reviews needed.
  • Fake news, seriously?

    By SLKD
    Today a new report from News Break about a 117 year old man being released from prison. Today This was first reported in July 2018. And, Snopes marked it as fake news, coming from a junk news site. Look it up. Uninstalled this app.
  • Clickbait

    By moorek69
    too much clickbait. poorly designed site
  • One sided

    By furiousor
    This source of news app is one sided. It does not intend on telling the story from both sides and if it does it always finds some way to bash the republican side even if it is good. Would not recommend if you want a honest news source. It’s almost as bad as cnn!!!!!
  • My review

    By The Brown Conservative
    I love the app need a few more news outlet options. More right leaning outlets available to choose from
  • Tired of dem sided info

    By gmsdmmr
    Only provides updates on dem political info
  • Too many bs stories

    By qt or rrt
    Too much advertising and bs stories
  • Biased news

    By Big 12119876
    Too biased.
  • Biased garbage

    By Splattered coyote
    If you’re looking for non biased fair news, look elsewhere. This was nothing but cnn articles and left wing propaganda.
