Great News App. 5/5
Good news reading app. Kind of like the Netflix of newspapers. I would highly recommend this app to anyone who wants to read a wide variety of news to get a better more rounded view of the world we live in. The interface is clean and the curated content is relevant. You could also go to the source and read the entire newspaper. To the developers.. well done
Great news app! 5/5
This was the news app I’ve been wanting! It’s straight forward and easy to use without all the clickbait and random ads littering the page. You can customize what sources you want to receive news from and make your own tags to follow stories that are more topic specific. I’m still in my free trial, but the content and the app are good enough to make me seriously consider buying a subscription. I was a bit deterred by the subscription price per month being $10, in comparison with apps like Reuters and even Apple News, which are free for the most part. But for some new sources like The Washington Post and The Economist you need to have a subscription to their specific periodical to gain access to certain content. I can see how the $10 inkl price could be worth it in that regard. One flat fee per month for access to all those periodicals except WSJ and Barron’s (which i don’t read anyway).
best new app i’ve seen in years 5/5
it’s fast, easily customizable, and does well with less mainstream topics that both google and apple heap google, oddly) don’t handle well. i looked up tibetan buddhism and not only got near instant articles and news on it, the keywords generated were very on point as well.
the apps own picks and sources are many and good. my only request is to be able to add a couple of my choosing, but it’s a quibble.
cross platform too. i will be using on both android and ios and will subscribe to show my support starting next month.
most unbiased and reliable news source i have found on the internet
Color Scheme 1/5
By Visual Outlaw
White text on black background. Couldn't read more than a couple of paragraphs in the first article. Had to stop because my eyes went.
Best news app, bar none 5/5
Thoughtfully curated, artfully presented, nicely responsive.
It is worth paying for quality, and either of the two subscription options should be adequate for most dedicated news readers.
Top Notch 4/5
Great news with no nonsense!
Almost Perfect 4/5
By Guy Lovestoread
This app has quality news but it's drawback is that if I were to share an article, the person on the other end would have to subscribe to Inkl. Also I am not given the option of opening an article in Safari. Therefore this app is good for private use but is found wanting in sharing information with others.
Cannot unsubscribe 1/5
You can buy an unlimited plan for $15 a month or $10 for 100 articles. It is IMPOSSIBLE to unsubscribe. It's not through Apple, you need to email INKL to unsubscribe and all the email addresses bounce. There is no setting in the app to unsubscribe. Also when on a free plan, most articles are free, a few are premium. Once you upgrade to 100 for $10 a month, you are charged for EVERY article. I got emails daily begging me to subscribe and now that I subscribed, all forms of contact have disappeared. Free is fine, do not upgrade.
Deleted It 1/5
By Utah Ron
Forget the free version. The good stuff is hidden behind a rather expensive subscription wall.
Doesn't do what it says it would 1/5
Still bombarded with ads and messages like "you have 5 free articles remaining" while on a premium subscription.
Great go to news app if you want various perspectives 5/5
Provides stories from a diverse array of news sources.
I recommend 4/5
Great way to combine the best resources of news all in on app!
Nice app 4/5
By Aufton Wundarbar
The app is easy to navigate and use
News source alternative 5/5
Great to have options beyond the usual suspects.
Excellent layout of news 5/5
I use Inkle daily ... The only thing I find confusing is the plan options for billing.
Easy to use 4/5
By SmileyWiley Thiel
This app is just what I need. I like scanning headlines and I especially like being able to do it by category. One thing that would make it easier to use is a keyword search feature.
They removed landscape view 1/5
Pity I can't give you 0 stars for not declaring that this upgrade removed landscape view. Downgrade much!
No landscape mode?? 1/5
Come on! How long has iOS supported landscape mode? Really short sighted to not provide such a simple feature. It's telling in regards to your development team's lack of experience.
Simple, clear, useful and no clickbait 5/5
By Stephe Wilks
I like the fact that I get a sensibly curated view of the world from a broad variety of sources, covering off the key issues of the day; and not wasting my time trying to work out if some clickbait headline is actually obscuring something I want to read. Great App - keep up the good work...
Excellence in quality without quantity 5/5
I use the free service. Well-curated news. Stories and sources combined for informative, international, variety - without a huge mass of everything available or different versions of the same stories. No celebraties or other nonsense. I don't have to weed through US election fodder - it's rarely included by default. The ads are nonintrusive.
Thank you for an enjoyable, full featured, user experience for free. I can focus, browse, and read without multiple, intrusive, elements.
I can't justify $120 a year for news. I already pay for subscriptions to services like The Atlantic. Though it could be worth it for the extra features, like more in-depth material. I do like to support app development, but I don't need another subscription. A fee to remove ads or something would be nice - to support the app.
I did get likes on Facebook from my serious news junky friends for my post about Inkl. Rare and deserved. An app I can, and have, highly recommended.
best for balanced views from around the world 5/5
far better than the narrow minded sites quoting only US views.
My source for news 5/5
inkl helps me keep up with what’s really going on in the world. Perfect for my commute.
By Kenneth O'Leary
This is now my main source of news. It's convenient, relevant and perfect for the business professional.
Annoying interface to good content 2/5
By L . . .
The interface is much better for Blendle than for ink.
The frequent pop-ups asking for reviews might not be doing them any favours.
My favourite news app 5/5
The best news from really respected global publishers.
Love the app 5/5
Brilliant idea. I'm tired of dozens of news aggregators that just focus on stories about Kim Kardashian and other irrelevant "news". This is great for reading real news from legitimate sources.
So far... so good 5/5
I wanted something similar to Flipboard that was easy to use and had lots of categories and constant news updates. Not as pretty as Timeline but way more content and new articles all the time. I really like it so far.
Just started using this news aggregator and find it very informative and user friendly. It is now one of my top 3 news apps I use every day.
Great app 5/5
Heard about Inkl on "The Entrepreneurs" podcast from Monocle. Great user experience and full of good global news each day. I read it over breakfast and always pay attention to it.
