    The App was rated great for some Conservative content But the white Word on shiny Black toooooo hard to read actually
  • More forced one sided “news”

    By Yama Yaka Yama
    No matter what you pick for your feed, the top of the page is filled with NY Times, CNN, Politico etc. You are not given true options to choose what you really want to see.
  • Great community for great content

    This app has replaced NYT as the first thing I check every morning—quality news from multiple sources, with smart commentary. I don’t comment often, but I love the concept!
  • love the curation

  • Just OK

    Nothing really special. Too little content to be very compelling. The last straw was when it insisted on me turning on notifications. I know I could have just tapped yes and then no in the iOS dialogue, but the decision to try and trick me into thinking I had no choice caused me to view this negatively and remove the app.
  • Spammy

    Couldn't use the app without enabling notifications. Deleted after only using a couple times. Looked cool enough though.
  • Has potential

    I downloaded the app directly from an ad on facebook that said “I’m tired of getting my news from facebook.” Two or three days in I find it sending too much business-related news, and I’m picking articles and waiting for it to learn that I’m interested in education. Seems like it has potential.
  • Ehh

    By TimSae
    Content selected by The Guardian and CNN. So much nope happening here.
  • Great place for meaningful conversations

    By dokoyo123
    I have become more active on the app recently because I can see deep analysis and smart commentary on the stories that I’m interested in learning more about. I also get excited when someone like Candy Crawly “like” my commentary!
  • Excellent curation service

    By Fffffrrrrreaaaaannnnnkkkkkk
    It's refreshing to be able to follow people instead of simply relying on an algorithm that decides what content I 'should' see
