Love this app- you get exactly what is says and I love it

One of the best news apps in the store. I'd like to see notification syncing between the WP app and this one. Also, the adds aren't placed on the best spot within the articles.

I can't make it work, either. Would one of you persons who loves it write directions for the rest of us, please? And now I see it wants ME to choose a rating for this site? OK. I'll give it a one as I have no better choice.

This app is a wonderful source of the news and other related issues, political, economic and other public matters

Good app, but would be nice to see comments left by readers on the desktop version, like you can on the Windows Phone version.

You should get more like this

The rating system lets you look at the news your in the mood for. If your tired of just seeing the horrible stories going on in the world you can click on hilarious or brilliant rated stories and instantly feel better. great app!

This app is pretty nice. The design is busy and loud but kinda works for this tabloid-like app. I like this app on my tablet and it makes me feel more up-to-date on current happenings in much less time than other news apps. Great for modern day attention spans! :) Noticeable and distracting bugs caused this app to lose some stars. Biggest problem is that it doesn't seem to scale above 1920x1080, for instance on my desktop. The height gets locked and wastes a ton of screen space, suspending the horizontal scroll bar in the middle of the lower quadrant of my screen.

Feel like I get more ads than news with this app. And they are irritatingly banner like. Why don't I just use the browser and go to CNN.com if I wanted these many ads. FAIL.

I understand the need to monetize an app, but there are way too many ads in this app. Otherwise, the app does a good job at presenting short news stories. I prefer the Windows Phone experience, even on the smaller screen.
