Editors’ Choice

Quartz is a trusted source for global business news—but it’s more fun to think of the app as the info-obsessed friend who keeps you in the know. (And occasionally speaks in haiku.) Quartz’s feed is continually updated by the app’s team of international journalists. Stories include Quartz’s original content and chatty summaries of articles from Bloomberg, The Guardian, CNBC, Wired, and other outlets.

Bad business practice

Making it so that only paid members can comment and share ideas about articles is a way to lose users, not gain members. This also sets the tone that only voices with money behind them matter. If your struggling that much for money, is it really worth continuing to be a business? Why not just add advertisements for non-paying members? That makes much more sense.

If your having problems with non-members spamming or commenting inappropriately, why not add moderators? There are so many better ways to do this.

Awesome app

Quartz is a great way to get actual news without political bias. It’s short and sweet so I get a summary of important events going on in media, politics, business, and anything else that the public should know. The notifications are only important info so they aren’t annoying, and unlike most free apps it’s not riddled with ads. It’s one of my favorite apps now! I would highly recommend it to people who want to be caught up with the latest news but only have a few moments to do so.
