2.0 out of 5 stars why only video news March 7, 2012
By Greg
perhaps I'm old fashion but I prefer to read most of my news. 90% of the news stories on this app are videos.

Outstanding news app with an imaginative interface and quick, intuitive navigation. Very impressive, and best of all, it's free. It has quickly become my go-to news app for my Android tablet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine, but powered somewhat by hidden advertising January 22, 2013
By Eric
Verified Purchase
This is a good broad-ranged news scout, with the added benefit of gathering news in which the user is interested. It's rather like a more customizable StumbleUpon. The disappointment arises when I click on a story, only to find that its source has truncated it and asks me to subscribe to it. I know bills have to be paid, but this is definitely a limiting factor in the enjoyment of this app.

I have been using this app on my kindle hd 7" but when I tried to install on the 8.9" it says it is not compatible. That is a real shame because this is the best news app. I bopethe developer will optimize it for the kindle hd 8.9"!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Improvement August 24, 2013
Verified Purchase
Love this APP when it was on my iPhone 4 then iPhone 5 on my wife or my Android Galaxy & now Kindle. Almost like FLIPSIDE but you can create a reader and very convenient when sharing it to READABILITY (Highly Recommended APPS for reading like a Kindle book) for later reading without wifi.

Would give a FIVE if it does not shut down from time to time. Needs a little improvement.

Comparable to Newshog or Feedly and Flipside - all APPS great for news reading on many sources.
