Keeps me up to date on news

I don’t have a lot of time to watch all the news so I really love getting the important things that come across my screen. That way I can tap on it and it takes me to to whole story. Even if it’s not all that important it does keep me in touch with what’s happening in our country and our world around us.

New Update ruined it…..

Im not sure why these large companies feel the need to take something simple/working and turn it into a jumble of nonsense. Most people just want the articles from the sources they choose. Why not leave it like that?? Now…articles from weeks ago are showing up, articles from sources that have nothing to do with what I want to see, the choosing of sources has become cumbersome because you have to block the ones you don’t want instead of what you do want and none of the setup on the page is logical. Oh….and stop with the stupid “get points by reading more articles” nonsense. It’s childish and overkill. The “For You” section is definitely not “For Me” Took something simple and loaded it with trash. Sad!

Terrible app

Not sure if it’s the algorithm but the app pushes a lot of clickbait and one-sided/biased articles. Not too many objective articles which is terrible for the current state of the world where people just want straight fact and reporting without the biased opinion of the writer. Not to mention, the comments section is a rotten cesspool of people who seem to be on the extremes, in echo chamber, and only there for confirmation bias.

I probably had the app for 5+ years and I thought it was pretty neat. I thought it was more of just objective news back then and I was hoping it would get better but it just kept getting worse so finally deleting it.
