A Free News App Worth Using

As a business professional, I subscribe to many different news sources since being informed is one of the most important things you can do. Out of the 16 apps, I have used this one does it all and for free with no please sign up here ads or crazy request that ask you to pay X dollars each month to read free articles. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to be informed this is definitely the app for you!

System doesn’t seem to adapt to preferences

I have been using Hummingbird for about three months now. I’ve taken to exploring sources of stories to assess the trustworthiness of sources, and asking the app to exclude those sources from my feed. I find sources with strong ties to the NRA or the Heritage Foundation to be untrustworthy. I’ve also found sources tied to fundamentalist evangelical churches not to have much value for me. I also tend to exclude sources that deal primarily in celebrity gossip. When a source with a broader perspective pushes a story along these same lines, I generally peruse it, and don’t mess with asking the App to exclude that source.

Nonetheless, the app keeps pointing me to unhelpful sources, and while I find the exploration of sources interesting, I want an app that focuses on reliable sources of interest. I’m close to deleting the app because pruning sources and topics is ultimately not an activity I feel like focusing upon

Overall a good news app with a big flaw

Overall, this app is much like the Google News app which I like a lot. However, the biggest gripe I have with this app is that it often shows news that are apparently outdated. For example, I follow NBA games everyday and I often run into news which after a few seconds of reading I realize is about a game that occurred days ago if not weeks! This won’t matter much for non-sports content to me. But for sports, who cares about a game that happened a week ago?? It’s like Microsoft’s search engine does not have an algorithm to ignore outdated sports news.
