App for local and breaking news’ lovers

In the past few months, my mom and I’ve switched to get my news through Newsbreak. Its entire news feed revolves around our personal interests. I like the way they present the “Following” tab as well as “For You” tab, both delivering personalized news feed. I am also impressed by the numerous good-quality sources they have, which seems to be the key metrics for a good news app right now. The full coverage of local news is the reason my mom love this app and choose it, as my family can get the latest news from our county and the news around the world.
I do not get swamped with push notifications that much. .. the notifications I do receive are nice and gentle reminders of good stories that are available to read, which also reminds me that I have the application (which is nice! ). The only glitch is that sometimes they get me the old news stories in the notification, which confused me a little bit. I am looking forward to a way to report this error to the team so that they can do something about it. General speaking, Newsbreak is my favorite news app among several for now!

Most Outstanding Up to date News!!!

The Updates and continuous live feed to the public is the most helpful and convenient way to stay in the know of all surrounding news and crime occurring around us! Most importantly, it helps us avoid and prevent our children from going in the path a crime or hostile environment may be taking place. The only way we can protect ourselves and others, is by staying informed of the much unnecessary crime that has overcome our cities! Everyone should have this installed on their phones, laptops and etc. We can all try our best to stay safe and avoid what and where this much horrific violence of crime is taking place. May God keep us all in his arms and protect our families from this burst of CRIME! Thanks for the work you all do to keep us informed!

Breeding grounds for white supremacy.

The full 4 stars is because the app does pretty much what I expected it to do without much problems.
But with this app, as much as I’m thankful for the fact that we have freedom of speech here in America, tossing out the ability to comment on articles would be a good idea for this app. You literally can’t click on any somewhat popular article without seeing some kind of racist, homophobic/transphobic, sexist, or xenophobic rhetoric. Those comments mostly coming from, to no surprise, white people. And in America, we’ve seen what that can lead to. I believe this app gives hateful people the ability to openly and unabashedly share their hateful and ignorant opinions. And with the current state of America right now, we really don’t need anymore platforms for this kind of speech.
Freedom of speech is protected, until it comes to the point of inciting violence, which is what white supremacy does.
Besides that, the app is good for delivering local news fast with, in my experience, little to no bugs.
