NEWSBREAK opinion 5/5
I don’t read newspapers anymore. With Newsbreak I choose what I want to read and it’s free!
Comstock Park, local 3/5
I decided to click the site on and quickly came to the decision, misleading. I interested in Comstock Park local only. I’m deleting the App.
There is none 5/5
Very informative always up to date Bury him
But it would be great you could put dates
Extremely Racist and disgusting comments 1/5
The news stories are fine but the comments sections are littered with extremely racist, blatantly violent, death threats, and hateful comments and about religions, political views, and women. I don’t know how it is acceptable.
News Break 5/5
By Sherry A Sons
Excellent news coverage..
Always fresh and just breaking
Breaking news not so breaking 2/5
The app is good but their “breaking news” comes out a day or two late, so fairly good chance you’ve already read about it from several other places. If you are looking for something to send you news as it’s happening, don’t count on this. It’s not bad though for getting news that isn’t very important. Think of it more as a slow newspaper than a breaking news, need to know something app
The amount of leftist vitriol posted here is completely sickening. Apple should be ashamed of themselves for this!!
News feed 5/5
I love this ap! I literally am on it all the time, keep it up! Thank you for keeping the news going

Great News Source 5/5
Pertinent updates are constantly posted for local as well as national news. Consistent with my interests.
Honest App! 5/5
Truely does was it claims. Accurate, timely and region specific. Coverage of the things you need to know for the place your interested in.
Tried similar apps. Loaded with garbage and jump links.
Not this one!
Always informative and relevant for my surroundings events and also national news. THE BEST APP TO KEEP YOU UP TO DATE HOUR BY HOUR!!
Bad news-all the time 1/5
I had to delete it. I was getting depressed. Nothing but bad news all day, every day!
Racist users 2/5
This app is full of ignorant racists. There should be a filter on what people are allowed to comment on the new stories.
Hateful comments 2/5
I would rate this higher if it wasn’t for the large numbers of hateful comments. I really hope that in the future comments are removed. The terrible and hateful comments has me considering removing the app. We all have too much negativity in our day to day lives as it is.
Disaster in Comments and Inaccessible Stories 1/5
The comments sections are populated with hundreds of Trump loyalists who are pushing baseless “fake news” allegations as well as statistics such as “80% of America wants [party leader] out.” Allowing these comments to circulate is in and of itself enabling fake news to propagate because it’s appeared to have convinced a good number of people that reliable news outlets are indeed “fake news.” Another one-star review below said that this app was “fake news” and a developer appeased the person by saying something to the effect of “we’re doing our best to filter out bad news, please continue using our app!”
TL;DR The developers need to be more responsible when it comes to combatting blatant lies in the comments sections. New/younger readers are getting tricked into thinking anything critical of Republicans is “fake news.”
Also, the app links the full stories in each of their posts, but you begin to hit paywalls if you do it frequently enough. News Break should consider negotiating subscription plans for users who pay a premium.
I’ve got a LOVE/HATE relationship with this app. 3/5
Decent app for news. Able to block whatever content or site I may not like. Had to turn the notifications for it off though, got a bit sick of my phone going off all the time. Lots of articles new and old BUT, after some update I can no longer follow any certain site and the search is no more which basically blows in my opinion. An update with these fixes would be nice so I can find whatever it is I may be looking for. That’s really my only beef with it...
Battery drain 3/5
I don’t know what it is about this app but it drains my battery in just a few minutes besides that its pretty good
Same News 2/5
This news app doesn't seem to update much. Same news over and over. Would be nice to see more of a variety.
Chinese owned company/ Republican Propiganda 1/5
This is a Chinese owned company and the news is not news it cut and paste and it’s geared towards getting Republicans and the right all fired up and hating on the left
News Break App 1/5
It rarely shows what you click on. The first thing you get is a pop up ad. I could live with that, except that when the ad is over, I get news that is days or weeks old. I have not had this issue with other news apps. Done.
THIS IS NEWS? 1/5
These are all teaser stories to get you to sign up for their “service” When you do you will be blasted with junk e-mail, false stories, and more ads than you can imagine. TOTAL WASTE OF TIME
Classified Ads 1/5
By Martinville Mayor
Your classified ad section highlighting the area of Birmingham, Alabama are full of scam artists ads. Farm equipment and automobiles I know of are highlighted for sale through fake eBay Motors processes at very low prices enticing unwitting patrons of your to bite trying to save their hard earned money.
I strongly ask that you do your research and have these crooks put in jail.
I loved your local news notifications and recommended it to lots of friends but now I am dropping the app because of the scams! Shame on you for doing busy with these crooks
parading as military service members, etc.
Just thought you should know and unfortunately for you, all the friends I formerly
recommended your site to, I am now suggesting they drop the app for reasons above.
Best in the moment News 5/5
By Debbie in Sunrise
Best, in the moment, news channel all day long ! I love it !
Awesome app 5/5
News briefs that keep you informed on major happenings in your state and other states as well!
Crash happy 1/5
Used to be a favorite for local news views. Now all it’s good for is to constantly close itself out.
To many adds 2/5
Way to many adds and a number of links provided take you to articles that require a subscription to access.
Good, but removed due to... 4/5
App provides location-relevant information, but little room to customize. Not only does it repeat headlines from different sources, but you can’t turn off comments which can be really annoying, and you can’t customize notifications so every news is pushed as breaking news.
Racism at its finest. Great for white suprematist 1/5
Way too much hate language in the comments. They doing nothing but put out race baiting articles. They do nothing to police the comments. Try Flipboard. This app is garbage.
Great local news 5/5
By Texan in PA
I read this several times a day.
Hate the ads. But give to get.
Great information and in a instant! 5/5
This is the best way to get news and information instantly I have come to count on this daily
Was much better before all the updates 2/5
Great app for variety of news sources.
Since these last couple updates, however, it does not add new news stories as quickly or as often as it did previously. No longer my ‘go to’ for most current news. Very disappointing
Ads, ads and more ads 2/5
Did I mention ads? Every 3rd or 4th “story” is an ad. If that’s not bad enough, they’re the same one. Plus its usually a picture of some disgusting unwanted image.
There are a few interesting articles mixed in, but it’s not worth it.
Great concept but very spammy with intrusive ads and uninteresting gossip 2/5
By Guy 7 billion
Downloaded the app excited about being able to keep up with news events in the cities closest to me.
Seemed like a pretty good setup at first, although you can only choose 1 city/town that you are interested in receiving news about.
Then you quickly start noticing how spammy and continuous the (completely irrelevant) ads are throughout the “news feed.”
And how glutted with NON LOCAL news the feed is. There is tons of celebrity gossip on everything from foreign royalty to kardashians fridge content - completely useless garbage!
Even after you go through the hassle of trying to click on links to say you are not interested in those topics or outright “blocking” content from that source, you continue seeing more identical content from other sources or the exact same ads!
Hopefully they can fix these frustrating points as it could be a great app, but right now I am very close to deleting it and looking for something better.
Comments not screened 1/5
The news feed is awesome however the app does nothing to regulate the comments which are over the top racist by anyone’s standards. Those users should be removed from the app and the comments removed as well at a minimum. Be better!
Local breaking news 1/5
By Mutha Ma
Amador county is local idiots
Great, but lots of ads 4/5
I’d love to see a paid version where you could use the app ad-free. It’s a great app with great content if you can get past all the ads.
Your update was a joke! This app constantly crashes!
News break is Awesome!!! 5/5
Best news app ever!
By Ray R. 78
Your notifications for new stories will pop up 2-3-4-5 hours after something has happened.
News Break 5/5
I love it! It’s well written and always up to date!
Great summary of News 5/5
This is a really good source of news updates that I am interested in receiving. To the point and no sifting through streams of headlines.
Jordyn Woods 3/5
Do we really need this article?
I like the idea of a local news app, but I seem to get a lot of alerts for sensationalist headlines from the next city over. Wound up uninstalling.
Liberal bias 1/5
Love the format, but hate the liberal bias, how can person believe any of your posts, if you omit news that should be posted, just because you don't post the crimes of Hillary doesn't mean they aren't happening. Plus to many articles linked to star tribune, which you need to purchase to view.
Crashes Constantly. 1/5
Crashes constantly when you use it. Can’t block certain news feeds.
