Jon Stuck ,

Very useful app

I read lots of different articles from lots of sources every day. It’s great to have HotMacNews alert me to interesting or breaking articles automatically. I can then open the article directly or just ignore the publication. If you follow Apple news I have found noting better to bring it all together in one place. It is always great to get the news I need in one app!

Great look at all Mac

Very useful- only way to keep up with Apple goings on…a frequent stop if you want to be current.

Love this app

Great source for industry news. Love the way I know about a new OS update before it even pops up on my device.
