Good news aggregator

Simply is a good news aggregator, but it needs work. I find it very helpful with its simple design and easy to read updates. It generally provides a summary and then allows you the choice to proceed and read the entire story. All of this said, I find the categories very limited. I like to select from a wide variety of news topics, such as travel and environment to specific sports. There are really only 6-7 topics you can select from for your news and this needs work.

Delivers as Promised

Great app—quick, easy to read news feeds that can quickly catch you up on what’s going on in several major news categories. Easy access to more detail for stories that catch your interest. Not the place to do in depth reading. But that’s exactly why I appreciate this app! I just need an unbiased way to get a variety of news in the brief!

Ok but needs work

Decent aggregator. But seems to default to the New York Times version of any story. Which would be great if you have an NYT subscription, but that kinda defeats the purpose of an aggregator. If I buy an NYT subscription, why would I read it in Simply? Also doesn’t acknowledge that other outlets also do good journalism and a variety might be a good thing. Not very customizeable - in fact pretty stripped down. Hasn’t been updated in a year and it shows. Not my go to app anymore.
