Excited for this app

I know this app and network is brand new, but it’s off to a great start. It’s easy to navigate and not buggy, and the content is straightforward and not full of sensational headlines or click-bait style articles (which is exactly what the world needs more of!)

One feature I hope to see in the future is a way to customize a newsfeed. I like scrolling through headlines and topics most relevant to me in one spot vs navigating around and filtering each time I open the app. I also hope the weather section continues to expand its details so I can get rid of the terrible weather apps I otherwise have to suffer through.

Functional and centered

I have a lot of news apps, and have always like NZ Herald for ease of use ,.. but NewsNation is just as smooth. The only confusion I had was when trying to exit a video until I realized it required clicking the ‘restore down’ brackets [ ]. Re: balanced reporting.. it’s true, although reviewers who already have a strong bias will view any story that doesn’t come with the same bias as skewed. As a career tv news producer I’ve seen this many times. The center is always hated by extremists.

REAL news without spin or lies!!

I’ve been looking for a news service that I could trust to REPORT the news using real FACTS, not politically biased spin or even flat out lies. WGN NEWSNATION has done just that! It provides a broad range of topics and gives details of important stories that others just gloss over, if they even cover them at all. Great app for my phone and good source for my TV viewing at home during prime time!
