Playback error: ID: -o2-0VnwAXBWM9Zj 1/5
By DIABLO 696
Every time I try to look at a video it says “an error occurred. Please try again later. Playback -o2-0VnwAXBWM9Zj. Not happy with this at all. This happens on every video. I’ve tried deleting and redownloading the app and still nothing. Please fix it or I will be deleting this app permanently.
Completely bogus 1/5
The news stories that came up were not even legitimate stories. Don’t waste your time on this awful app.
Worst news app if you actually want news 1/5
Fluff, nonsense, and worse. No news through this app, but rather opinion articles pushing one agenda or another.
News articles. 2/5
I get tired of my news articles being filled with garbage. I thought I could control what news articles I get. I either get political news or teacher sex scandal news. I’m sick of the same old topics popping up. It’s really annoying. I would like more positive articles.
Totally absurd dealing with this app 1/5
I have now had at least 15 to 20 alerts for the same story in the last 30 minutes. Have not commented on it, but it still keeps coming up. I will now be deleting it, and it better stop.
I took a screenshot of the madness, but can not share on here. Also left feedback on the app it self
To many fake news sites. They don’t check if the sites are reliable news media mixed in with real news media sites.
Very disappointed had the app for over a year keep hoping it will improve and this AM top article from a blog with fake news.
Will not recommended this site unless you want fake news mixed in with real professional news sites.
Non News App 1/5
By Bubba in Podunk Florida
No hard news at all. Huge waste of time. Makes Huffpost look good😡
App locks up 1/5
By BC Buz
This app freezes up, you can’t scroll, can’t close the app. Don’t waste your time with this one.
Great app 5/5
Awesome app for staying up to date on all kinds of news!
Could have been great (read on) 1/5
So I, like so many in the world today, are looking for a reliable source for news whiteout bias and nonsense, something that is not falling into this latest trend of “fake” news (and at least tries to be balanced).
Since the Apple news app has such limited options if you don’t want ridiculous alt-left sources I tried this app.
In 3 of the last 3 days I have been blasted with major story’s that seemed very serious & valid involving the government, and caused me to open the story, which ended up being 100% fake. It was almost like reading a supermarket tabloid that appeared legit and made you think something very serious happened, then once you read you find the headline absolutely was a bait and switch.
This app allows the crap information to come through and appears to allow politically biased and fake foolishness to be displayed.
I will give it a couple more days to ensure it’s not isolated, but the plan is to delete the app if it continues. I’m not interested in games and bs when I want news! (NOTE: I made it a few more hours and 2 more bull crap stories came through,..I deleted it then)
Another thing, I like to be notified when breaking news happens, sadly this app doesn’t allow for custom sounds on the notification, so whatever your txt alert sound is will belong to this app too. Bummer!
Local “feature” not worth it 1/5
Pushes mostly click-bait and news from unverified sources or conspiracy websites. “The Guardian”, “Conservative Tribune” etc. Not worth it. Look for something else.
Trash news - not based on fact 1/5
The news on this app is obviously not written by real journalists, it's written by emotional right wingers. Don't download it!!!!!!!!
Lots of racist propaganda here 2/5
This has to be a Russian bot site can't be real
Explicit Content 1/5
I’m giving this app ONE star because it seems to be able to show SOME articles related to your interests. Although they claim these news articles to be from reputable sources - MOST ARE NOT. The advertisements and many of the articles contain explicit content (topless & nude pics) that are totally unrelated from the interests you choose.
Please clean up the content and remove the less reputable news sources - or let us choose which news sources to see. This app doesn’t do a very good job at showing relevant, reliable, clean, or interesting content. Don’t bother downloading it until they fix these issues.
Crashes on iPhone 7

Click-bait pusher hidden as news 1/5
It’s a click-bait pusher hidden behind a news frontend.
Constant click-bait and ads slipped into notifications amongst a few actual news stories. Then switched for ‘real’ news sources after you refresh, as if all the scam bait stuff just disappeared. Real stories seldomly load if clicked on.
Update: More click-bait, this time on the shooting and the ‘Strange’ thing the shooter did that left people speechless, seriously Newsbreak? Deleting.
The 5 star reviews must be fake... figures.
Too much fake news 2/5
This app features a lot of ‘news’ sites with questionable integrity and lots of ALL CAPS. I’m better off with Apple News.
Love local News! 5/5
Easy to use, and good to read news from local and national in one app.
Love the new update !! 5/5
I have used this app for around 6 months, I love their local news push notification that I can easily find out what’s happening around me and warning my friends and family. On this new update I am surprised I can follow my interests and keep up to date with that by simply follow that in the new “following” tab. The new bottom slider also make it easily to browse different pages and refresh articles. I would love to share my this app and recommend it to my friends and family!! 👍
Got everything I like 5/5
This app not only keeps you informed of the latest headlines and local news, but also delivers all your interests. It seems the more times I use it the smarter it will be. Will recommend it to all my friends.
Always on the top of breaking news 5/5
I like how it is organized. That makes it simple to find what I am looking for without delay. Fast and efficient news delivery from diverse and trustworthy sources. FANTASTIC!
Waste of time 1/5
Flashy headlines that lead to junkie news articles. If you have nothing else to read then maybe this is the news channel for you... but you WON’T to be well-informed, guaranteed! DELETED.
The new slider is awesome! 5/5
It’s the best news app. I can choose the topics and it seems know what I like to read. All the news is right to my taste. The slider is very easy to use. It’s more easy the change between topics. It would be even better to have more videos.
Yesterday's News 1/5
After watching and reading the NewsBreak news, I have deleted the app off my phone.
Everything I see on this app is yesterday's news. It might be okay for the person that is not on any Social Media where they would see what is going on local, State,Country or World Happenings .
Could be good 2/5
I can only see about 25% of the stories I try to open. The others just show a white screen and I can't see the story 😥.
Poorly designed 1/5
Must have Facebook to enjoy
Commonly click on notifications and cannot view
Fix you bugs, that would be breaking new
I'll receive an interesting notification and get nothing when I click on it. Very frustrating. I still read what's available but what's the point if you can't access all you want to read?
By Ky's Glammy
I would give this app NO stars if I could. It's very frustrating when I receive a notice from you giving me headlines to a news report THEN when I click on it I CAN NEVER FIND THE STORY. I AM DELETING THIS APP NOW!!! I don't have time for this. After you've worked out your kinks, I may come back. Thanks.
Great app 5/5
Love getting my news so fast
It's ridiculous that you HAVE to have a Facebook account to write a comment. Not everyone wants to be associated with that liberal crap of a social network. I'm deleting this app. Also, I wouldn't call CNN & the rest of the liberal, lying media a trusted news source. They are all corrupt liars not to be believed or trusted anymore.
No Thanks 1/5
Just a bunch of old tired liberal talking points. Deleted it!
Great News App 5/5
Love this news app, easily customizable and informative!!
Breaking News confusion 1/5
This app is confused about what constitutes "Breaking News". I routinely have advertisements and entertainment news pop up as news breaks. Don't bother.
Excellent Resource 5/5
I love this app. I was struggling to get timely information about current events, until I got this app. Now I have the most current information and can easily get more information about any specific topic that interests me. I can be a better citizen because I know what's going on.
Needs correction 1/5
My local news is Albuquerque, NM. USA. I put USA because on the top of EVERY page in my local news is the map of MEXICO. Someone needs to learn what the 50 states are. New Mexico is part of the USA.
Love all the news and how fast the stories update!!!!
YOU are in control 5/5
By Forever Xheld
You are in control of what you receive and your interest, all in one app. Awesome App.
You can block fake news like CNN! 4/5
Good app 4/5
Not really a personalized app - and forcing FB to be the only log-in option is a detriment. I am generally not interested in Entertainment headlines, yet that's 90 per cent of what I generally receive
No so functional 1/5
Watch app not working at all.
News Break 5/5
My favorite news app!
It's very good app 5/5
It's good to have it let me know my local news
Great app 5/5
By Sandal dog
This is my favourite app. It keeps me up to date with what's going on in my very busy life, thank you News Break! 😊
Great app 4/5
I love that you can listen to radios or channels while minimizes or using other apps.
Needs more news related videos, other than that perfect app
"For You" is not for me 2/5
The interface is good, but falls short and dictates what I see for news. There is no way to customize the "For You" page, nor remove new sources that I'm not interested in or find unworthy of my time. Freedom of the press should be on both sides: freedom to write and freedom to consume. I deserve the freedom to pick my sources.
Could be good if .... 3/5
The news is disjointed. My local county seat is London, OHIO. I keep getting local news about London tower fires and London mosque attacks. London, ENGLAND isn't local news. It's international. I can get very interesting.
I think News Break is good. 5/5
I think News Break is a good one. It is useful. It is on the Apple App Store.
GET FLIPBOARD INSTEAD 1/5
I tried it again. Now the today widget is not working on my iPhone 7 Plus. The app is still buggy. Look some where else for a reliable source of news. This one is not it at all.
Love the format especially for a quick run through of trending stories, very good if you are in a hurry and want a quick overview of the news
