With Version 3, we really committed to our slogan: “Your News. Your Views.” The Views News is now has two parts to it. One is the news recommendation system you’ve come to love. That has remained the same albeit a few design changes and functionality enhancements. The other part is Views Community. The goal of the Community is simple: establish a platform for people to come together as one, irrespective of their differences, and engage in a thoughtful discussion where both parties can leave learning something new. In order to make the Community as harm-free as possible and avoid the scandals we see on other social media platforms, there are some guidelines that are set to make it enjoyable for you. We encourage you to write for the Community, primarily sharing your opinions and thoughts on the fast-paced world around us. We can’t wait to see what you’ll share!
Ratings and Reviews
I love the simple, clean interface of this app. I also really like that there's a limited number of stories, instead of an infinitely scrolling timeline that I get lost in. Instead, I just scroll through, reading some headlines and some stories, and then I'm all caught up for the day!
I love the idea of Felicity (a bot you can chat with), but I'm honestly not sure what you can actually ask her. A screen with sample queries might be nice 👍🏻

Thank you for the review! It makes us feel great knowing our work is appreciated! We also love your feedback and have plans to help Felicity seem more approachable to everyone and give her some more features! Thanks! 🙏😀🤖
Blows away the competition. Best news app I’ve ever used
Version 3.0 of Views is really amazing. The design is soooo good, light years ahead of Apple News. I love how simple and minimalistic it is. I also really love the brand new Views Community. I constantly post my stories on the Community and I love receiving reactions to my stories. This is really a game changer and can be the next big thing. The $0.99 monthly subscription is really worth it- unlimited stories on Views Community, summarizing news article with Felicity (who’s simple awesome), and all the themes. This is a great app and I highly recommend it to everyone, young and old, whether you’re into news or not.
Now requires creating an account; it should not
I was using this app and it was great, but now it says it requires my email and creation of an account to use it with no explanation why. It should not require an account to view news. Completely unnecessary and inconvenient.
Update in response to developer’s response:
It would be much, much more preferable if you just used the Apple ID and didn’t require creation of an account. An account is created either way, but that way users don’t have to be the ones to create an account, which is a completely unnecessary step. (Also the email address isn’t inevitably spammed).

It’s been a while but we have released Version 3.0 of The Views News. Log in and now you’ll understand why we needed you to create account, for Views Community. Under construction for more than half of last year, we believe that the Community is a way for users to have open ended discussions about the news and present their opinions freely. We have a lot of features that keep the Community an honest, open place without turning it into another polluted platform like Facebook or Twitter.
We’re not asking you to use our app, but simply informing you that your review is outdated and does not represent an accurate picture of our app. Have a pleasant day!
