    It has got more advertisements than news.

    Great source of general real time news. Lots of links allow you to go deeper. Quick summary gives you a good snapshot. Updated continuously with breaking news alerts.

    Fast and to the point with the news.

    I love the content that this app scrapes, but the adds are so obtrusive I can't scroll on a page without hitting one. You are robbing your advertiser because it is so frustrating I would never buy anything I saw on this app. Gotta make a living, but come on. Make a paid ad free version and I will 5 star it. -Lumia 920.

    It's far too easy to click an ad while scrolling the stories. 3 stars for this annoying problem.

    Great app. I get news info quickly & easily. Please allow the option to be able to read black text on white background. I have a very hard time reading white on black. Add this option & I'd be happy to chg rating to 5 stars.
