Easy to read and informative. 5/5
Loving this app so far! The quick bullet points and story summaries make it super easy to skim and choose which stories to expand. Being able to pick and choose push notifications is great. The UI is very clean and efficient, which is always a plus. I hope in future updates I'll be able to browse the rest of BuzzFeed News (instead of just the current headlines) and search for specific stories or categories.
Most Biased Liberal News Source 1/5
There is no doubt in anyone's mind that buzzfeed is a balanced news source and this app helps show how biased buzzfeed really is. They are one of the most left-wing liberal news sources out there, only second to MSNBC. Don't download this app, I suggest looking for another app/website to get your news from.
Great but needs a widget 4/5
By Nickname, my name
Great app to catch up on news, but I suggest adding a widget on the notification screen like you had with the original buzzfeed app! I especially like their bullet points for each story. I lost interest in the regular buzzfeed app because their news stories were impossible to find through all the quizzes they like to publish. This news app brings my interests back up.
solid news app + some fun, too 💯💮 5/5
By M. M. Y.
I don't subscribe to push notifications from any other news outlet, or use any other news app. BuzzFeed covers it all, from the latest world news to the cultural stories. I appreciate the mix.
Not for everyone. 3/5
This app is not for everyone. This style is different.
This is not for people who are Fox News fans, nor is it for an older generation crowd. If you actually like more moderate news, this may not be the best choice for you.
I can take Buzzfeed a little more serious with this app.
The company will work out the kinks as time goes on.
They are not my favorite, but I can appreciate them trying to capture the younger audiences and showing them that news can be cool.
If you are as liberal as San Francisco, this is totally the news app for you.
If Bob Schieffer, and Lester Holt are your favs, you should stick to them.
More Liberal than Fox News is Conservative 1/5
By J Haas
Terrible news app. I hate bias. They clearly have an agenda. Not to be trusted for a reliable source.
Awesome, but add a catch up widget :) 5/5
This is a great news app! Buzzfeed is awesome, and I love that they cater to both fun viral posts and serious news. One suggestion for the news app - please make the "Catch Up" summary available in a widget for the "Today" drop down on iPhones. :)
Does not refresh for 3 days! 1/5
Same articles for 3 days in a row! It is ridiculous.
Literally just redirects you to their website 2/5
I was hoping that this was a sign that maybe Buzzfeed was turning a new leaf to less click air news and better design through their app but the articles are usually pretty poorly written and when you go into an article it's just a web view of the article so it doesn't benefit anyone to actually have the app versus just going to the Buzzfeed website.
Beautiful & Clean 5/5
Everything about this app is clean, simple, and super digestible.
The fifth star: 4/5
What it needs is a browser to search for keywords in most recent news. I love the idea, saving the planet from contamination and keeping people updated.
Like the other reviewer said, it's vert left wing bias. Just give us the news without the agenda.
Yay. Buzzfeed :( 3/5
May god almighty help us, BuzzFeed has came out with a "news" app. You know what this means? Buzz Feed will now be able to plant their "10 Reasons Nutella is healthy" ClickBait titles on the AppStore.
Just junk news for the masses.

Beware: Another Lefty News Outlet 1/5
I have a left foot and a left hand. Don't need a lefty news service. Good bye.
Hardcore Left-Wing Bias and Agenda. 1/5
By Joshua D.
I'm a person who actually likes to read news stories from a time when reporter's and news organizations had integrity and a wholly objective view when it came to reporting what was going on in the country and the world. I realize wanting objective news today is a shocking proposition. I also realize that trying to find that objectivity in reporting in Buzzfeed, well, it's a hopeless endeavor with how far this app/website leans to the extreme left of politics and ideology.
I should have figured that this would be the sad case by looking at the pro-Homosexual screenshots for the app and seeing LGBT issues mentioned in the app description. But, I foolishly thought that maybe there would be at least some non-partisan reporting in the app. Sadly, though, this app/service is as left-wing as they come.
I guess if you hold a hardcore left bias yourself, that you will probably eat up all that is presented in this application. But, if you are looking for a neutral, fair and balanced reporting, I'd recommend that you steer very clear of Buzzfeed.
It's funny too, you can really see Apple's left-wing bias revealed too, by them showcasing this app in the very first slot of the newest apps that they recommend.
iPhone 6 Plus/ iOS 8.3
This would be a great app, but it keeps crashing.
Great news app 5/5
Well designed and attractive. Frequently updated. Epitomizes intersection of news and tech.
Love this app! 5/5
Makes news easy and accessible
LEFT LEANING BIAS, ADS/BANNERS COMING 1/5
It's a nice app. For now at least. I say for now because all the ADS haven't be added. YET. And I have no doubt they will. IF the ADS and Billboard of ADS were not going to be added I would rate it higher. It does need more control of the topics I want but it's not bad.
Wish they didn't have to ruin this app. Once enough people use this app and time passes those ADS will come.
It. Is. Amazing. 5/5
By far the best. Buzzfeed couldn't have done better.
AWESOME GUYS 5/5
I can't wait for it to install!!!!
Great so far ! 5/5
I love buzzfeed news section, glad they finally got their own app.
Perfect 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 5/5

Best News App 5/5
By Jess Probus
So simple to use and beautifully designed.
Great NEWS App 5/5
BuzzFeed is a great company and this new News app truly proves the organization's commitment to increasing its quality journalism. I'm very excited to see where this app goes and the new features that will coming in the future.
Great app! 5/5
Wonderful news app 5/5
So well built and informative. A must-get!
Good for news as only Buzzfeed can do, fix sharing 3/5
Sharing articles is awful on here. Within an article it literally just shares the title, by itself, with no link.
Good basic news reader, no topic filter available 3/5
Good news app that provides billeted summary. However there's no way to filter the types of news you want such as political, social, world, funny, etc.
Weak writing/curating. Empty. 1/5
Another childish curating of empty articles with big headlines. All filler no meat.
Sigh. Are people today really this empty? Buzz feed is.
Great way to stay informed 5/5
I like that stories are presented with a digest of details, tweets, etc without being overwhelming. Looking forward to making this my go-to news app!
The best 5/5
This is instantly the best news app in the store. Cir.ca has been unseated.
Favorite new app 5/5
Love this app. It's easy to use, cleanly designed/organized, and quick with the most recent and pressing news. Go buzzfeed!
New Favorite 5/5
Concise news source that is perfect for a busy college student like myself.
Beautiful, simple, perfect. 5/5
•Super clean UI
•Good for getting your news fast
•I like how you can choose what trending news you'd like to see
•I like that you don't have to read a long story, instead it gives you the story in a gist/notes type of way
Needs filtering system and sign-in abilities 4/5
I have been subscribed to the Buzzfeed News email since it first started. I have enjoyed the way articles are broken down into quick summary points with an option to view the full article for more information. This app is a fairly similar concept and is a easy way to have a quick catch up of important news. However, there is no way to filter the news stories and they are all clumped together in one feed. Also, there is not an ability to log in with your Buzzfeed or Facebook account. In order to leave feedback on the article, you must leave the app and open your mobile browser. If these two features could be added in the future, I would easily rate this 5 stars.
Smarter. Interestinger. Emojier. 5/5
Love everything about this app. Presented cleanly, clearly and in a timely fashion. Nice work BuzzFeed!
Absolutely amazing download NOW ppl 5/5
