Yyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaa ,


I’ve been looking for a news app for some time that keeps me well informed without taking too much of my time. I’ve tried twitter and reddit and many more but this is so far my favorite. The app is very simple and pulls articles from notable news sources all over that are catered to my own interests and important happenings.

A few things that I would like for the app in the future: the ability to add more categories to my interests as well as create custom categories, the ability to save articles on the app to reference later, and the app opens the article in the browser directly rather than bringing me to the river web client.

Thanks so much for creating this great app! Keep it up.

🎉You Need This App🎉

I really didn’t think I should download another news app, but a friend of mine insisted that I needed to download River. I must say, I’m not disappointed in the least. You take a few minutes in the beginning to select what interests you and that’s it. Now every time you open River, you get the news you care about. What an easy way to cut out the toxic news and focus on what you like! River has forever changed my view on media and how I will get my news from now on! Fantastic App!

Love it~💓💓💓

I have to say that I really love this app. Firstly, I enjoy browsing through it because the layout is very clear. Besides, it's user-friendly since it doesn't require answering many questions or signing in before trying it out. The most important thing is I can expand all the sources of information for many categories directly inside the app, which helps me save time by not needing to manually search for more information outside the app.
