Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic coverage, no paywall
One of the very best news apps. I prefer reading the news to watching it--this app allows both, and does both well. The widget provides constantly updating headlines when other apps, like the New York Times, have totally abandoned their iOS headline widgets. You can read top stories, including excellent coverage of issues of specific importance to LGBTQ and ethnic minority communities, watch video clips or the entire NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. Richard Engel's coverage of international news, especially Syria and Ukraine, is unparalleled. There are ads, but they're not intrusive at all, unlike so many other news sites and apps that have become unusable, and there's no paywall. In this era of fake news and alternative facts, this app is a bastion of quality journalism.
Info is good. Delivery is lousy
Many articles require waiting 15 seconds for an ad to run before the news video. If I wanted an ad to run every time I would just google “show me ads”. I want the news. And the ad seems to be the same for every news story. Other news outlets seem to get their news up faster so I usually start with CNN which is just as bad with video ads.
When “Breaking news” push notifications aren’t breaking news
The push notification options for this app appear to be “all or none”. There is one option in settings for “Breaking news”, another for “Quiet mode”. The problem is, I get tons of notifications for things that aren’t breaking news at all. Some are editorials (notification title starts with “OPINION:...”), others are non-breaking news stories: “Toddler's family grapples with 'unfathomable' loss after her fall from cruise ship”. The app needs a *real* “Breaking news only” push notification option. Until it does I’m about to turn off the app’s notifications because I get far too many non-breaking news notifications.
