Favorite news app by far

A useful app for me, as a student taking advanced classes, it’s important for me to keep up something new and in general, keep up with the real news. The news has become a very important thing in my generation now. I think it’s essential to know where you are getting your news from and this app does it right. The App itself works very well my phone, it refreshes almost constantly, I can always find something new. It has tons of different channels which provided lots of choices for someone has special interests. I love the variety of stories from each tab. Having multiple news sources available in one place is so nice and saves me from having way too many news apps. The default settings is more national focused, while I have the curated the ‘For you’ tab suited to my interests and local stuff. It’s a really nice way to see the news without other people ‘s opinions in the way. And it allows me to mark the item or people I want to follow up so that to get news about them. The app is a lot cleaner and easier to use with smooth UE and easy to share articles with my friends.
All the news is quite up to date and I enjoy the tabs that are available to choose from. I don’t get swamped with push notifications. Some of them I do receive are nice and gentle reminder of good stories that are available to read, which also reminds me that I have the application (which is nice!).

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!

Horrible with voiceover accessibility

For a number of years I have had my local news apps on my phone. Since I live in Kansas City, I had all four news apps. Then I slowly started to take them all off because they all report of the same exact thing and I found that to be repetitive and ridiculous to hear the same new stories out of all of them. A friend of mine told me about this app and I decided to give it a try. I’m very disappointed in trying to access the content. It is not accessible with voiceover and you don’t know when your double tapping on something whether it is selected or not. I would hope that the makers of this app get in touch with those who use voiceover on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and ask how voiceover works or at least look at voiceover. Voiceover is a part of the iOS. I certainly hope that voiceover is considered within the next update. I also would like to mention that the tabs are not accessible with voiceover so when a visually impaired person goes and double taps on a tab, they don’t know what tab they’re hitting.
