Needs iPad edition

I docked one star giving only 4 because it is formatted for iPhone only. Otherwise no need to repeat the praise of others - ditto!

I believe Apple has mandated adaptive screen layouts mandatory soon, so hope they will put in the effort to update.

Great Source of Defense Info

This is where I have been going to get up-to-date, intelligent, in-depth defense-oriented information and analysis you don't get in the regular news. They also seem to have some independence and no gross bias that I can see (unlikely most of the media these days). They're measured and relevant and responsible in their coverage, not sensationalist and muck-racking and hysterical. Very refreshing! I haven't had any problem with the app. It's all good!

Left-Wing Propaganda at Best

This app should be listed under “Entertainment” as opposed to “News.” It and its articles are complete bull. I just went through nearly every one in my feed and they were all filled with politically biased rhetoric, not fact-based reporting on defense related issues. They make no attempt to maintain an unbiased approach and simply use their platform as a means of pushing their far leftwing agenda, even going so far as to show open support for the criminals and anarchists of ANTIFA.

Also, if you notice... almost all of the five star reviews are only a few words. That is a pretty clear indication of bot activity and artificial inflation of the app. Nice try Defense One.
