    Goodbye.
  • Disable comments 1/5

    By Mitzi Carmichael
    The comments are dominated by vile racist bigotry. No one needs a side of hateful racism with their news. I have deleted this app and do not recommend it unless they discontinue comments.
  • Opinions 5/5

    By Rikka187
    Quick way to get the headlines. Tighten up some of the articles. Too long and a lot of the are really boring. Overall doing a great job.

  • Hi 5/5

    By Mike 5 kids
    Thanks 🙏
  • I try to like it! 3/5

    By Charley2533
    I like how I can choose subjects & locations of what i like. However, I don’t like how I can’t link anything or copy & paste. Also, the count of ‘likes’ is not correct, in one place it says you got 5 upvotes, then on article it might say 9 upvotes, it’s no biggy but should be same. Also, I can like a comment & then go back to it later & my like has disappeared, that’s probably the reason the counts are incorrect. Main problem though is as I stated first, the copying, pasting & linking-it’s very aggravating, why have a share option if it doesn’t work correctly? If it’s an important topic to me, I use a different site so I can give & get feedback. Thank you.
  • Would pay for ad free option 3/5

    By David65465
    I like the app, but hate the ads. Please offer a paid version with no ads.
  • Performance review 4/5

    By crystal resident
    There is still room for improvement,but I feel that it is much better than when I started out. Some of the stories are posted in duplicate,or that topics are poorly spelled, or word choices are too dramatic or repetitive like game changer. It is kind of a slang that to me is childish, cheap, lazy,not thoughtful for the reader. Those type of writers need to go back to school. But keep up the improvements. You may like to change up the line of categories if users are not seeking those types of info. This would possibly bring a bit more relevance in different age groups,perhaps in my opinion steer clear of race favoritism in articles. Thank you.

  • The most racist comment section 1/5

    By Down With Google!
    Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself. Literally comments saying brown skinned people should be put in camps.
  • App 3/5

    By poppo2426
    Was a good app when it gave you local news. Now the app only slants to the left. Won’t give you just news. Just talks about trump All day.
  • Revue of this site 5/5

    By truckerman1371
    This is the best site that people give their opinion good or bad and are not blocked for anyone beliefs
  • Wonderful, informative 5/5

    By maimigirl
    I’ve always watched the weather channel for hurricanes. Now it doesn’t come in the package and you must pay for it. Thanks to Fox News for doing a wonderful job on hurricane Ian coverage. Who needs the weather channel when you have Fox News.
  • Worthless advertising app 1/5

    By Dale6586843678
    This app continues to produce forced advertising that locks my phone up.

  • Non-loading stories 4/5

    By Bored infoseeker
    I normally enjoy my app with stories on a variety of topics from a variety of sources. However today has been frustrating since I can’t get any stories to download, even after hitting refresh. It happened a couple of times yesterday, but today it is totally useless except for seeing the headlines. Help!!!
  • Good app 5/5

    By Dwaew

    By Tttaka2
    I especially appreciate the up to date, interesting, unadulterated news presented. Thank for representing Journalism, news as it should be.
  • Too many hateful conservatives 1/5

    By zeldakix17
    This app is filled with so many anti-science, conspiracy, theorist, hateful, conservatives, and anti-rhetoric on here like if you are anti-science and COVID-19 ruling you get a lot of hatred on here and you’ll get a lot of thumbs up on here it’s ridiculous. They really should not even have comments on here. A social media app for journalism is a joke
  • Funny 2/5

    By rackinstaller
    This app isn’t too bad , the functionality of it isn’t the issue. The issue is the content is pure propaganda. I received a response from the publisher, one can only hope that they are successful.
  • Biased 1/5

    By Crysknifejr
    I can sum up this app in one word. Biased. If you love your news left leaning and completely biased then this is the app for you.

  • To many left leaning articles. It’s like ABC, CNN, and MSBLSD. 2/5

    By tafarrell25
    The app wants people to respond in kindness and honesty while many on the article don’t.
  • Gone way downhill 1/5

    By Cari Jimenez
    When I first downloaded this app I was impressed with the articles coming through and how they updated. For the last month I have not gotten anything new on it. I have it uninstalled it and reinstalled it I have tried everything possible and it’s like the app just does not work anymore so sadly I will just be removing it and looking for another news source.
  • Replies 1/5

    By ValerieDoglover
    I have sent your company three messages and you do not have the decency or professionalism to answer my question. Thank you!
  • Fake news at its best! 1/5

    By rraalphy77
    NewsBreak is definitely as left as news can be. It’s sickening to see the same garbage reiterated day after day. Also news stories are twisted up really bad. One example news of a shooting in North Baltimore Ohio, actually a shooting occurred at the north side of Baltimore Maryland. This is the worst garbage I’ve ever seen! Communism is what we’re seeing with NewsBreak.
  • Misinformation 1/5

    Incredible amount of misinformation and flat out lies made up. I’m done!
  • Uninstalling. Very biased, Left leaning reporting 2/5

    By jlcharlton
    I like the local news reporting, but I’m getting tired of the constant stories of them gleefully reporting stories that they obviously feel will be damaging to the conservative movement. Hardly ever see anything critical of the left. And there is so much to be reported there! Because of this most obvious bias, I’m exercising my right to uninstall it!
  • I want it off my phone 1/5

    By Keyskruzer
    NewsBreak is a far left news app, and I want it off my phones library!!
  • I use to love this app 1/5

    By JPMD1000
    This app use to be the best balanced news app around. The articles ranged from conservative to progressive. However the addition of NewsBreak Original, articles written for NewsBreak, there is a very strong anti-Christian presence, with multiple anti-Christian articles each week. Yes, there are some pro-Christian Articles; but they are not saying other religions (including Atheism) are bad, but some thing in the Bible was confirmed to be true. I am happy to tolerate some amount of anti-Christian articles because I am looking for a balance of views. But the NewsBreak original articles often are mean and disrespectful, which is not good journalism. I can’t recommend a news gathering service that has started to show such a large bias against any group.
