Liberal Political View 2/5
By Capt Camosa
This could be a lot better if the liberal political viewpoint was kept out of the articles. ALL we want in the news is the truth, let US decide which way to go and make our own decisions. All we hear from reporters is: “I think...”
Filled with hateful comments 1/5
Literally Filled with hateful comments, xenophobia, homophobia and racism very present on this platform, the news is fine but the community is toxic, who threatens those they disagree with harm.
App serves too much non relevant content. Chinese based 2/5
The app served a lot of content to create anger and divert my attention to issues that are contentious and divisive.
The app developers are also not local and are based in China similar to TikTok. I wonder if the government in China is trying to influence content in this app?
No homepage for the company or info on where they are based or funded publicly. It is because they want to hide the roots of this app being from China.
Very informative 5/5
The news is very timely and informative.
Malware in News Break Android Code 1/5
Contains malware avoid.
By penny antics
This app just posted a false story about the polls concerning the 2020 election,
One star 1/5
By Rock stones fab girl
As a long-time conservative, I expect a more well-rounded news review. I’m deleting this app. It’s a shame that the news you provide is outdated and so far right-leaning. You will not find well-educated people to bring to the conservative arena with this nonsense. You’ve lost another traditional educated adult. Please get your act together. You’re losing money as well.
5 stars 5/5
By D kru
Love the updates
Started to notice your headlines are never about what happens before a video hmmmm
Hard Left 1/5
Newsbreak is a far left biased purveyor absent facts and absent truth. Ex: Read their piece on Fox News cutting off Newt Gingrich on September 26, 2020. They accuse, without introduction of facts, Gingrich of spinning anti Semitic lies about George Soros. Ironically, Gingrich was mid-explanation of the factual basis for his comments. I would not want this app on my phone, nor would I ever cite their version of news in any discussion. Completely unreliable as to facts. Completely reliable as to radically left bias.
The links 1/5
By Cheryl's iPhone 6 Plus
They don’t open when I tap the photo to read the story. It’s difficult to forward an article b/c of the link. Hope this will get fixed. iOS14.0.1. Same problem in iOS 12 & 13.
Buggy as can be 1/5
There are so many technical issues with this app that it’s become severely annoying for me.
First, when you open the app you’ll see your main screen with the headlines on it they want to present to you. But then, that page “refreshes” itself, and the headline that may have caught your interests evaporates into cyberspace somewhere.
The notifications, especially those for the comment notifications in the “inbox” are buggy as well. I’ll have a notification on the tab that there’s a new reaction to a post I made or a response to it, and there’ll be nothing new there.
Lastly, the upvoting and the downvoting are buggy at best. I’ll upvote someone’s comment, and it won’t take.
One final thought. The app shows a lot of left-learning bias through what it presents. Pretty sickening, actually.
Too Many Ads 2/5
All the ads. Are it very difficult to read the actual news story.
If you want nothing but stories about Kardashians, Christina Anstead and Real Housewives flooding your feed, then this is the app for you! Also BLM is King on this app and white-people are reported and racist, ignorant criminals. Don’t waste your time!!!!!
News review 5/5
This app should be banned 1/5
By kayde n
Chinese owned...promotes hate and racism. Lots of fake content. Many bugs and glitches. Do you care enough to protect your data and community?
Total Democratic 1/5
Biased propaganda from the democratic party swayed completely to the left
App for the negative and useless 1/5
By Sender Family
This app shows nothing but negative and useless information that pollutes your mind.
Great App! But includes satire. 4/5
This has been a great app for local news and even some national news. Ads have their place and aren’t at all annoying. I’m much more connected to the happenings of my state.
However, this app does include satirical articles as news. I don’t know if there’s an algorithm that accidentally included the satire but for folks who are easily persuaded or aren’t aware of which publishers push silly narratives, this could be a dangerous inclusion.
I love my satire, but not with my news.
I can’t even read a full story without ads messing it up worse than the person who wrote it. Instead of your 1000 posts a day about stimulus checks, work on fixing your app!
Way to lib 2/5
By Bjorn ardvirsson
It was cool when I first got it but recently it’s just been liberal news
This app is supposed to be for breaking news yet they post opinionated articles!! Literally a joke
This app constantly shown its political views and posts about “fake news”
Good, but... 4/5
Since this opens up articles within the app, you can’t “zoom” in on articles. I wish you’d allow that. I’m sure some would appreciate.
Reported news is boring and not news worthy.
Leftist slant 1/5
By Verasity 2020
The articles that I have read, depict the far left view of the facts. This article falsely refers to Breona Taylor as a medical technician. She was previously a EMT but lost her job after a car she had rented was involved in a homicide.
I have currently trying to find a way to stop the notifications. Recently, this site has started pushing their political opinions as breaking news which lets me know they support Trump. As a black female with black sons, i don’t support anyone or any company who feeds into his ideas as he doesn’t support me, look out for my best interests, or the country’s for that matter. Get back to real journalism which required facts and not paid opinions.
Not worth it 1/5
Crashes all the time an other times I’ll go to click on a news headline in my notifications an It’ll come up blank or with an error message.
STOP DELETING MY REVIEWS. 1/5
THIS APP IS TRASH. IT IS SAFE HAVEN FOR THE MOST DISGUSTING FASCISTS WHO AREN’T IN OFFICE OR WEARING WHITE HOODS RIGHT NOW. THE DEVELOPERS ARE NOT WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK TO IMPROVE THE APP. THEY ARE WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK TO HELP THE ORANGE TUMOR CORONATE ITSELF SITH EMPEROR. THIS APP WILL TELL ME THAT SOME COPS WERE “SHOT” IN KENTUCKY BUT IT ADORABLY NEGLECTS TO MENTION OVAL OFFICE CANCER’S SPOKEN INTENTION TO END DEMOCRACY? LAUGHABLE IF IT WEREN’T SO DISGUSTING. DELETE ALL YOUR FIVE-STAR REVIEWS INSTEAD. MONSTERS. SCUM.
Allowance of Blatant Racism 2/5
I love the News Break app, and found it convenient to use for local alerts in the last few months regarding COVID-19, wildfires, and local news.
However it hurts my heart not only to see the overflow of racist comments. It hasn’t been one or two comments but hundreds. I understand that people have political preferences. But the outright bigotry is unacceptable and unforgivable.
What hurts more is that News Break allows these comments to appear. One could say “well, maybe just don’t read the comments” “don’t be so sensitive to what others are saying” “it’s Free Speech” etc. I am often interested in seeing what other people have to say in response to the news. Unfortunately, most of these people shamelessly express so much hate. I’ve seen these comments since the day I downloaded the app back in March, and tried to forget about/ignore them for too long.
Every article about any person of color, especially those which discuss criminals of minority background, feature a comment section filled with racism, bigotry and hate on MOST of the comments.
This is what News Break ALLOWS.
Very good app for news notification, but I can no longer support an app that makes allowances for blatant hatred.
News Break, please do better.
Taylor death 5/5
By Sdh brski
ThAnkyou for speaking out fairly and bravely tonite on Laura Ingram. I appreciated your comments. I am a retired LEO and am relieved to not be working during these nightmarish times. God bless
Nearly every political article is slanderous and biased.
I often find interesting stories posted on your site but I don’t think that I’ve been able to finish reading hardly any of them because the site freezes or page resets, and if I try to start over it takes forever to get back to where I was and then it freezes again ...just happened tonight on 2 different stories...I like getting my news here although often redundant...this week I got a new notification for a story that was exactly 1 year old, so you guys have some issues...this could be done so much better
Ambulance chasing attorneys 1/5
By YT 92804
I found this disgusting ambulance chasing attorneys jumping out at you while you’re trying to read this news article of the despair of a family loved one.
News Break 5/5
Tell me Everything YES!!!
Not “breaking” news 2/5
Many stories that pop up in my notifications are old news that have been either reposted or regurgitated by different sites. But the worst part of the app for me are the users- all comments eventually become a political back and forth of unkind, bullying comments that have absolutely nothing to do with the article they’re posted on. SM has trained the human brain to believe they’re always right by not showing us anything that opposes our beliefs... this site seems to be no different.
Decent news, better comments 5/5
By Yung Daddi
The comments are the whole reason I use this app. Y’all some psychopaths on there and it’s hilarious.
Real news 5/5
By One Eye Tiger
Great following of real news and not paper news prepared by a shirt upstairs that only gets what is prepared and handed down
Best news app ever 5/5
I hate watching to read news but I love this app because it covers everything from everywhere I’ll write it to fingertip grade it
Skip it 1/5
By Beechnut Babe
Just another app to present you with opportunities to subscribe and still get ads.
By Timmy Tuccer
Good app for news in the hood keep u up to date with good infor!!
Keep sending notifications to my emails 3/5
Very annoying, it keeps sending daily updates to my registered email. I tried to unsubscribe it through my email but no way. There’s no way in the app to prevent those daily digest!
Just realized there is an option in the email at the bottom. Can’t you just put an option in the app to disable this?
And I did not remember you have ever asked about whether agreed to subscribe with email. Hope you can add some option here.
Democrats have control 1/5
The employees are democrats and let convict molesters post from prison
Needs new leadership 1/5
The site is generally anti-Trump or pro-Liberal. There are many times the news coming across is also incorrect for our area. I thought news was supposed to be unbiased.
Scrolling is horrible 3/5
By mark gaudette
Great app- I use it a lot and actually don’t mind all of the notifications (it’d be nice to choose which categories to be notified about).
But, scrolling through an article. 9/10 times that my thumb is scrolling vertically the app wants to close the article and move left in the app. Really frustrating and ruining the experience. Suggestion: the thumb scrolls in a circular fashion when using one-handed so there should be more leniency on reading what a “vertical” scroll is vs trying to close out of the article.
Too many AD’s 1/5
By 0ver done
You can barley read the regurgitated new stories, I deleted the App, waste of time...
what the hell is this?? 1/5
By racist headline
“white woman murdered by a group of blacks” is the headline that came across my Breaking News APP pop up
This isn’t 1930. This smacks of trump’s campaign propaganda using the racist “saving suburban women from projects moving in” bs.
This APP just lost any credibility as a legit source of news.
By king 8989
This app is terrible!!!!!!!
Great App except one thing 4/5
I love this app. It’s my favorite behind the Apple news app. Basically the only two I use. However when I load an article the screen dims. Similar to when you get a pop up on another browser. Except I don’t see any pop ups and it’s on every article I read. If I open the article in safari it’s nice and bright. But I don’t think I should have to do that to see the article properly. If that ever changes I’ll definitely give a 5 or 6 if I could star review.
