Love it! 5/5
This is the app/educational wonder-tool I've always been waiting for.
Really useful app 5/5
This gave me an A+🍍 5/5
I ♥️ Newsela!
I love how you can read and annotate
Great concept but crashes too often 1/5
The app is built on a great concept, and has many great articles. However, their development team operates poorly which ruins the overall customer experience. There are so many bugs both the app and the website that makes the service crashes often, sometime even not able to login! The user experience is poorly designed too. I still don't know how to correctly register my kids to the service. I hope the team can set a higher standard on the quality of the app and the customer experience.
Some small problems 1/5
Every times I use this, if I accidentally forget to sign out, then I can't use this app ever again until I download it again! By the way, is really slow on lodging or refreshing.
A useful teaching tool 4/5
I have to admit, this app can be very useful. It's easy to locate my class code, and select new articles to assign. It works as well as one would expect. My only problem is it only provides four quiz questions for each article. I'd like to see at least eight quiz questions, but I believe this is an issue with the website itself.

If you want to get real news like on politics then don't use this I'm using it for a school project and so far I just get ALT RIGHT ALT RIGHT blah blah nothing good about them...I see an injured black man and I say..."So what"
Was he apart of BLM maybe but that's an excuse I didn't see any ANTIFA like they are a terrorist group hell I didn't see anything about trump nor anything political related (I have a different definition of political)
It's sad to see the left ruin this useful thing I call it a thing not an app...if it was an APP then I would use it but since it's a thing I don't need it
Worst app ever 1/5
By Bobby he man clan
News ELA is really annoying because the app works sometimes but other times it doesn't
Cannot rate high enough 5/5
This app has engaged my son in reading. Without it I don't know if he would be interested like he is in reading. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!
I hate it because it's a school assignment
Best literacy too ever!
Honest and excellent news 5/5
Update after 6 months of usage - excellent
This is an incredible app; should get everyone to use it. Simple and elegant news. Thank you
Connecting All Students with World Events 5/5
Newsela connects students to current world events at their reading level. "Interesting" and "intriguing" are words that my adult Pre-GED/GED students use to describe Newsela. They like that they can read about news and information they can't get in local newspapers. In addition to that, I like it that the class reads Newsela on iPads. Paper is saved, and the students gain experience using technology appropriately. Having so many good articles to choose from makes the reading options more flexible for the class. All of us enjoy the class discussions that happen as we review and debate quiz answers.
I love the articles and the quizzes
Great! Very challenging quizzes too! 5/5
Love this app. Works well with google classroom too!
When ever I go in the apps and loads and it just kicks me out and I can't do anything
This is Good app 4/5
I like it this app!
3-4 but REALLY GOOD APP 4/5
I'm kinda in between a 3 and a 4 only because when I wanted to retake the quiz it was really confusing. But other than that it's a REALLY GOOD APP!👍
Just what I need 5/5
Newsela is wonderful for my struggling freshman readers. They actually enjoy reading the articles.
Pretty good. 4/5
By Navy Whale
It's a great app for reading and I like how they put it in different level.
It is so amazing it can improve my reading level.i will give you 5 stars
I was introduced to Newsela in sixth grade and wasn't a fan of it at first. Now, I LOVE NEWSELA!!!! I can learn about current events at my own reading level, take quizzes join clubs, join classes and do homework from my phone! I recommend this app to anyone from ages 7 thro 107(or older) who likes reading about current events.
By arcunikresdvhim hydbji
the app itself is great. it has good articles and a lot of different subjects to read about. although, it keeps crashing. it's hard to enjoy reading when you constantly have to close out the app and start over. sometimes it won't even let me sign in. do not recommend if you want to get some fast reading done.
Great for Education!!! 5/5
Great for helping students improve upon their reading and comprehension skills.
One of the best informational reading sources! 5/5
I absolutely love this website! My students do too!
Doesn't open 1/5
The app crashes before even opening. Title screen, then poof. Gone.
Fabulous tool, but.... 4/5
This is an amazing classroom tool, and it really helps me to build articles of the week for my students, but the variety of articles is a little lackluster. I am attempting a social justice curriculum this year and I am finding it challenging to locate articles which tie nicely to my themes. I wish the keyword searches were a little more on point than they are, and that the variety of articles was much improved. I will say that when I used this app and website last year under a STEM curriculum it was AMAZING, but I think that the developers need to up the kinds of curriculums that could be reached. Maybe they could add a feature that lets you narrow based upon common curricular themes?
Great news! 5/5
The updated app loads so quickly. Plus, students can ANNOTATE on the app. A must for reading engaging nonfiction for students.
Good App 5/5
By Basher Explorers
Really fun app. Very informative
Working great 5/5
Pretty friggin cool update. Love the differentiation. Huge help that my kiddos can annotate. Not having any problems with freezing or crashing that another reviewer mentioned.
Freezing and crashing 1/5
The app keeps crashing and freezing. I'm not able to complete my summer homework if it keeps exiting out of the app and freezing.
I'm not a foreign student, just your average 9th grade student in an American high-school. I love this app because it helps me expand my reading knowledge and I'm honestly using it to help me get ahead in school.
Read the latest news and articles 5/5
On the go easy to access.

I like it 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
Magic goggles for reading real world 5/5
I love using this with students and my own kids. Newsela is legit. It feels like magic when you can give a class full of kids differentiated access to the same topical and engaging article. Game changer.
Definitely would recommend 5/5
As a teacher NewsELA is fantastic!
By medo 84
Very useful website if you want to improve your English reading
consume too much storage of 16GB iPhone 4/5
I really appreciate your efforts to make learning English accessible to us foreign students. But I have no idea to clean the cache or articles downloaded to read new articles. Hope you can add a button or clean the cache automatically. Thank you!
Love it 5/5
By RITA ALFALAH
Best app for foreign students!!
Highly Recommended 5/5
I attended a PD for LAUSD today and the dynamic, engaging Kaylene Beers (author of "When Kids Can't Read) highly recommended this reading source because it adjusst the stories to different reading levels. I'm going to try it out with my summer school classes.
This app is great for children. I love the fact that it has the same articles with varying levels of vocabulary. It is good for kids. I like it.
Best thing ever !! 5/5
I'm a student who loves to read and will do anything to get something to read and Newsela has given that opportunity to me. Thank you to all who have created the app and website so much!
Awesome app 5/5
Newsela is a great app and very current.
Best Thing ever 5/5
Free reliable news and tests.
