Great source for all news in one place. Love offline feature and instant news downloads

Perfect app for news junkie like me who likes all news in one place. Like that I can create my custom channels too!

What happened to the cute Pig icon!?

I was ecstatic to see NewsHog offered in iOS. I loved this app when I owned a Nook so many years ago. The first thing I noticed was the precious icon was no more. I was still happy to have my favorite news app back and began to tweak my settings. That is when I discovered I could not pick my own news sources as before.

I will try it but for now I am far less enthusiastic than I was when I thought I found my old friend. 😢
