A fresh approach to news

A friend recommended this app and I was pleasantly surprised at just how refreshingly different it is. It's nice to see the news presented in a way that isn't too stoic but polished enough to still be credible. I look forward to reading the articles every day and I applaud the folks who make this app so enjoyable. Keep up the good work guys, I'll keep reading.

Great but has typos

Buzzfeed News is a great source for news. In fact, it’s my main source. They provide a great mix of mainstream news and unexpected or uncommon stories. I still think about a piece published about the treatment of children in the 20th century in orphanages. However, I have two big complaints, which is why two stars are missing.
1.) Grammar mistakes. For such a large company, it’s a little ridiculous how often a word isn’t quite right or there’s a random period with too many spaces. Mistakes with punctuation are more common then spelling, but still. It’s just unprofessional.
2.) During the pandemic, I have not seen very much about the actual pandemic other then a few statistics. It would be nice to see more because it’s so important to know about right now.
Despite this, it is still my main news source. These should be easy fixes.

From 5 star app to deleted.

Buzzfeed News started out as a clean app with straightforward headlines and nice summaries, but now it is a little too biased. I prefer news stories to be more centered and objective rather than a predictable lean in one direction or the other.

I deleted the app because my Apple Watch kept giving me updates even after I had turned them off. Then I deleted the app and I received another notification, which seemed impossible! I finally figured out the mystery, I think that BuzzFeed News had automatically liked itself on Apple News. If you're having issues with unwanted notifications, search for BuzzFeed News in your Apple News and click the heart icon at the top.
