Newsvoice is a free crowdsourced news app with the aim to fix the news. We give you a personalized news feed by aggregating major news sites, as well as international and independent media. Each news story shows multiple perspectives and sources.
Power to the community: Newsvoice is much more than another news aggregator, we move the power over the news to our readers. This gives you a truly independent and unbiased news source. Join our growing community to upvote stories that you think are important, write summaries and headlines, and add new links.
Unbiased: The news we read affect almost every aspect of our lives. Mainstream media is biased and owned by only a handful of corporations. Often they have an agenda of their own and fail to provide unbiased information. Filter bubbles in social media cause you to only see stories from sources you like or that your friends are sharing. On top of this there is a huge problem with fake news. By bringing you links to all credible sources of a story and tagging them with their bias (left, right, independent etc), you gain awareness and the possibility to make more conscious decisions of which sources you read and trust.
Dive deep: If you just want to read a quick digest of a story, our growing community of volunteers contributes by writing unbiased summaries. Our strict guidelines and moderation ensure that you get a high quality, unbiased news feed. If you are really interested in a story you can always dig deeper and get a great variety of links to sources reporting from every perspective. If a story is missing from the news feed, you can always add it yourself. When you’ve added a new story or a link to a new source, your submission is quickly reviewed by our experienced team of moderators.

Finally an unbiased source!
I first heard of this app through a youtuber and I decided to download it. I’ve never been happier. Remember how Facebook, Twitter, ect tried to claim that they’re unbiased. They’re not if they were they’d look like Newsvoice. This app not only gives you links to the headline stories but also lets you know where that news sight is on the political spectrum (save for the news you’d receive from Europe or Asia, it’ll either say Europe or Asia with no hint of political views of the website) on top of that (unlike Facebook and many if not almost all tech companies) they encourage debate and discussions. Because they put diversity of thought and true Grecian democracy (battle of ideas) over being politically correct. My only fear is that it’ll either taken over by the PC police or be completely shut down because they allow people to voice their opinions, popular or not. Keep it up!

Not bad. Needs tweeking
I just started using the app so i could be missing a bit but to that note: if I’m not finding it despite looking for it; thats an issue for me as a user.
I really like the idea of this app. I only had a FB for its use as a news aggregator and this could fill in nicely. It could also do a lot to disrupt the soup sandwich that is modern journalism. However, i really wish i could search for topics as well as downvote both comments and articles (i dont care but it might help with accurate feedback to make the up/down voting anon). Some of these are poorly written with terrible grammar and some are biased. Down voting would aid in holding journalists accountable. It would also help if alerts could some how be shown when corrections or updates were shown to readers; especially readers of the initial article since that is an issue. For casual news gleaning, the sight is great but as a means to fix the news which is what it was advertised as; needs some more features. But overall really enjoying it. Thx.

Hi thanks for your review and all valuable feedback! We are continuously working on improving Newsvoice and we brought up your suggestions in our meeting today. A search function is planned (you can track it here: https://github.com/newsvoice/newsvoice/issues/118 ). We will experiment with adding downvotes to see which yields better results. An issue with having downvotes could be that it can be used to suppress views that may not be popular with the majority of users. One of our key values is to provide different perspectives, so that is why we didn't choose to have downvotes initially.
Despite the claim to be an “unbiased news feed,” Newsvoice comments destroy this entire idea
First off let me start by saying that I love the idea. I appreciate the ability to see a news story from multiple viewpoints as it is very eye opening to see how different sources spin it. However, every single political story is plagued by very blatantly right leaning content. For whatever reason it seems as if many right leaning people out there have found themselves in this community for whatever reason and it has created a hive-mind in the comment section that becomes unbearable. I got this app to get away from biased opinions and adding a comment section only leaves an easy route for those biased opinions to be shared.

Hi! Thank you for trying out Newsvoice. We are aware of the situation in the comment section and it's our main priority to improve that. In the next version we will be able to feature comments from different perspectives if they provide sources for their claims. Also, we are advertising exclusively through left leaning channels this month.
