The news is overwhelming. Winno is the best and most efficient way to stay up-to-date. We separate the signal from the noise.
Throughout the day, our team fact-checks and summarizes the most important news stories, publishing them as one- or two-sentence posts. No clickbait. No crap. Just the information that matters most.
We're covering everything from Apple to climate change to Afghanistan, and we’re constantly adding more. Sign up and follow the topics you care about to customize your experience and stay current in minutes.
The news experience is broken. We scroll mindlessly through feeds of endless content, filtered through algorithms, where the line between fact and opinion is blurred. There is no flow, no structure and no chronology. With any other platform, sifting through clickbait and staying up-to-date is a full-time job. We’ve reinvented the news experience for the 21st century.
• Customizable – We cover 35+ news topics, posting all important stories as they happen. Choose the topics you’re interested in to stay up-to-date with what matters.
• Just the facts – Stories are posted live as short summaries, quotes, tweets or images. No clickbait or partisan junk. Each story links out to a source so you can read more.
• Get notifications – Get push notifications for important breaking news stories. You can customize their frequency for each topic you follow.
• Background info – Confused? Submit questions and we’ll post answers in the feed to give you relevant background information and context.
Winno is rebuilding news for the internet era. We are committed to building a humane, attention-friendly experience. All of our posts are written and fact-checked by humans. No more endless feeds curated by algorithms. No more doomscrolling. Our goal is to create a healthy product that people love, and we will ensure that our incentives as a business are always aligned with that goal.

The future of news is here!
I absolutely LOVE this app! I have never enjoyed watching the news, and reading it online had always been way too long and way too biased. But this app just brings all of the important information I need into one, convenient place! I have been so out of the loop when it comes to the happenings in the world, but now I have such ease of access to it all, I’ll never be behind again! The only two things that I feel the app is missing are: notifications and more categories. I wish I could have a pop-up notification every time something new was posted in the categories that I follow. Along with that, I wish there were more categories, like local areas’ news, and specific happening in certain careers like teachers or police, and other things like that. Either way, I LOVE this app, and cannot wait to keep using it.
Excellent, with some issues
I absolutely love Winno, and I don’t know how else to say it. This is the best news app I’ve ever used. Headlines are, as promised, completely neutral, no bias or opinion thrown in. I love that I can look at headlines and be filled in on the news in minutes without having to worry about sway. I use Winno, along with some other apps, to make timelines, and I have to say it’s the best because it is already in timeline form and I can go back so far! The layout is intuitive and clean. I’ve never had problems with it other than notifications lagging a bit. My one request is for a widget! I’d love to see the Winno updates on the side of my home screen. Overall, this is undoubtedly the best way to get news. If Winno had more than the special selection of coverage and did regular daily updates, I probably wouldn’t use any other app.
Thank you Winno!
EDIT: my feed often skips days, even when I refresh. I have to open and close the app multiple times, otherwise I am subject to issues like seeing the feed jump from 8 days ago to 13 hours ago, or similar timeframes. I also really would love dates on the postings instead of days ago. As I go back especially far, like 20+ days, it gets hard to keep track.
It’s great, and I’d gives five stars, but
I’ve been using Winno for a few months now and I love it!! I’d give it ten stars if possible. I would usually just go off of the notifications and not open the app or feeds all the way, which meant when I did, it would take a moment to load.
That was fine and understandable up until it stopped loading. Refreshing wouldn’t work, and it’s hard to get more information when it won’t show up. It was glitches like this for a while, but seeing as I didn’t use the app itself too much I didn’t mind. Today though, I decided to try and fix it all the way. I deleted the app (after checking that I had an account I could log back into when I redownloaded), and then downloaded it again.
It went well until it reached the ‘get started’ page. It gave me an option to sign in via different medias, or scroll down and select categories, but doing either option just led to the app crashing.
I’m leaving this review in the hopes of this problem getting fixed, because I really love this app! It has been super helpful and I don’t know what I’ll do without it!
I’ll be sure to update my review once this issue has passed! <3
