Ratings and Reviews
EXCELLENT REPORTING FOR EXAMPLE
I have found that the articles that are shared with readers that deal with political issues are expertly presented by The Washington Post (TWP) Not just the content is exemplary, the speed at which the article is presented to readers is of substantial desire. Being interested in our political address at this time takes me to many sources to make a determination of a total knowledge base. Readers will find that a significant number of media sources make “small talk” to attempt to draw the reader into thinking they are receiving a complete source for understanding the legal and political state of issue. Reading TWP first saves the reader time by it not being necessary to media surf to feel the information is complete and correct.
In this Age of not having time to waste, readers will find that TWP is the TOP FLITE of communication. This eliminates the necessity to “speed read” and possibly miss important and imperative points to know they have the perfect understanding of the subject. Readers expect to receive the Best of the Best in many tangible services and products and find TWP to be the Best of the Best in media communication.
I read this every day but...it has issues. Sometimes you click on a story only for another story - the wrong story to appear. They will talk about a video but won’t include the link for it - which is rather annoying. If you click on the picture for the story it will sometimes include other random pictures. The “Good news” isn’t updated often enough - really? It’s that hard to find good things to report? And sometimes the “good news” is depressing. It’s just ok but better than most of the other stuff.
Irrelevant news, too many ads.
Title says it all. There’s too much clickbait for this to be a serious news app, and the news that isn’t clickbait is horribly curated by MSN. Google’s offerings somehow know exactly what articles I’d be interested in, and yet, although I’ve already fed Cortana and Bing a bunch of keywords for my interests and specified what topics to display, they still manage to come up with irrelevant articles.
That being said, it does fit with the theme of fluent design, which I’m a fan of, and it is free, so the price is right. I just wish it was actually better at being a news app, and not another advertising hub.
(That being said, it’s horrifying that Google has scraped so much info into my advertising ID, but this is a case where it’s actually kinda convenient, so, this is alright I guess.)
