    It took me a minute to get use to this app. It is not like other 'news' apps. It really is a concise version of major news apps with insightful interactions from journalist and many people that are like minded. Very well put together. A widget would be a nice addition so that we can take a quick glimpse at what's trending. Also, would like a sound when getting alerts.
  • Another one sided new app

    I like the idea of the app and it’s design, unfortunately there is a definite bias, promoting the liberal point of view. The news sites that support this view figure prominently, this appears to come from the editors and supported by the viewers. A suggestion to fix this is allow us to block stories, individual commentators, or even particular editors. If this is instituted I will try the app again. Simply allowing us to design a news feed of thing we like is not enough. Response to developer note: When I click on the three dots I have two options, open in Safari or copy link. Perhaps you need to sign in using email or social network to have this feature work.
  • Used to be great but new feed is awful

    One of my favorite features of NewsPicks when I downloaded it was the ability to search and watch topics completely of my own choosing. Now with the “refresh” I am limited to a restricted set of topics or outlets that interest me much less. Hope they fix this soon or there won’t be much reason for me to use it.
  • Started out nice, then downhill from there

    Nice site, although it is home to too many Trump hating trolls, atheists and too-snarky “progressives”. If you are conservative, after a bit, find your comments ignored to the point where it is not worth following the app anymore. This is the perfect site to go to if you suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome. There you can all sit around and whine about how the sky has fallen and it is all Trump’s fault. This site is for America hating socialist globalist: aka the same people that should out our nation and our jobs.Plus, the site IMMEDIATELY lost any last vestiges of credibility when I saw that nitwit Ariana Huffington as a pro picker and that leftist rag of hers supplies many articles. Once the editors realize that if your comments do no toe their editorial line, your comments become invisible to everyone but yourself. A fine example of the much vaunted liberal ‘tolerance’ applying only to those of their ilk.
  • The print is too small to enjoy.
