This app is long overdue

I have waited for an app like this for a long time. It is badly needed in this environment where we are surrounded by data that shapes us well before we are able to distinguish fact from opinion or out right falsehood. I deducted one star because there is room for improvement in implementation.

Wonderful App — Gives the truth about the news

I’m so glad that I found this App. It gives info from so many sources and keeps me informed of the truth about what the media is providing. I’d give this 10 stars if I could. Many thanks to the people who created this to help us sort out fact from fiction/disinformation!

Truth finding App

Before I post anything political, I fact check it first. This app has made it so simple to sort truth from lies, without having to search multiple sites. I love that the reputable fact checking organizations that I use, are conveniently accessible through this app.
