Wait, what? It's not real news?

Did you LOL at the article about the area cat that sued over being sent to the doghouse? Save it for later, post it on facebook, or email it to a friend quickly and easily.

    News worth reading!

    Limited usefulness. Only the top two or three stories will direct to an article, the rest appear to be bad redirects. Would not buy.

    Mostly good. Links to photo articles are often off.

    No feeds work for a few months and no fix yet...

    Love the content but it's kinda glitchy. About half the stories have no text and the wrong picture. Fixed I'd give it 5 stars.

    So funny! The random headlines on the live tile give you comic relief everyday!
