Amazing Idea And Execution

As a college student myself I can definitely say it’s easy to get lost in all the different kinds of information sent around and it’s nice to know Spotlight exists to make it easy to stay in the know.

It’s nice to be able to read something and know it’s not fake. This app has done that for me and it’s so refreshing to be able read articles and not asking myself if it’s fake or not.
