  • Newsworthy? 1/5

    By some guy, who cares?
    Headlines are often misleading and stories often not news worthy
  • Worst App ever 1/5

    By SugLand77
    I get so frustrated every time I use this app I click on the story expected to go to that story and it goes somewhere else and I can’t get back to that story it’s the worst app I’ve ever used on my iPhone
  • Click bait app 1/5

    Reliable News!
  • News 5/5

    By billguido
    It is nice to have the latest news. But, I hate fake news.
  • Good local news app, terrible community. 2/5

    By Raging Badger
    It seems moderation for the apps comment sections is nonexistent, as they are almost unanimously full of racist or homophobic comments for larger news stories. Anything outside of the local news will be full of people describing their disdain for the (insert your favorite slur here) who are controlling the White House from behind the scenes, as no good Christian white man could do such things Or, if they agree with the article, it will be comments about how they finally defeated the (slur) that has hold of the government. Personally, in light of the abuse of the system and of overall discussion in favor of personal attacks, I would suggest removing the comment section entirely as it would be cheaper than removing every comment that calls someone “retarded” for disagreeing with their opinion. This review will likely never be seen, though if it is, I sincerely hope the developers invest in some way of cleaning up the comment sections before they start to become dangerous.
  • News contributors 2/5

    By ******/**
    News items are searching for member subscriptions. You read 3 or 4 articles and then they want you to subscribe and pay a fee.
  • Bias as ever. Too much inflammatory language 1/5

    By overittwitter
    Too much inflammatory language. Hateful language towards Conservatives and libertarianism
  • Racist Users 2/5

    By Ms.Twigs
    Beware of the amounts of racist comments you’ll encounter on this app. People are vile and tone deaf with their comments.
  • Total Garbage 1/5

    By Soundboard junky
    I got on this app because it was recommended and “unbiased”. The opinion articles are disgusting and ignorant. Specially the recent article about Candace Owens being “self hating” and “assuming” that her child was from her husband. You people will hate yourself into oblivion.
  • Interesting mix of news. 4/5

    By zoo chica
    Seriously good news.
  • Bias 1/5

    By dksoeiehabrm
    This app collects and promotes an ungodly amount of bias and is part of the media problem we have today. If you’re into reported lies and reading what makes you feel better through said lies or like being manipulated, this is the app for you 👍
  • Advertisements took over 1/5

    By mechanical1dr
    It was great at first but ads started covering up the text and would not yield. It kept shuffling the stories around. Really aggravating. I deleted the app today.
  • Local News 5/5

    By Forbes Notary
    Like what News Break brings to read for local and political
  • Spam, spam and more spam 1/5

    By demcomm
    The ‘news’ on this app is minimal and repetitive focusing on the trivial and cribs from well-worn stories while hammering readers with inane ads. A total waste.
  • seen an ad for this app with fake news 1/5

    By C0NC3PT
    so i decided to uninstall. even if the ad was only for marketing purposes, their desperation lost all credibility with me.

  • Review 3/5

    By MzPebs
    I like the news that I receive, however; some of the news is old, like weeks old.
  • Biased news gives wrong info 1/5

    By patriot144
    You are left leaning biased.You make the reading as left leaning and derogatory as you can to make the reader see in your way, not theTrue WAY. I don’t like your articles because of that. Won’t read your articles again!
  • So long Newsbreak... 1/5

    By CherokeeThunder
    After multiple times blocking stupid tabloid-like videos yet only to keep seeing them, I’ve utterly had it with Newsbreak! Not to mention a lot of the pages are literally COVERED with advertisements!!! Making the actual viewing area so small! I see this app as solely regurgitated tabloids and adverts. Some news cannot even be read without accidentally clicking in the strategically placed “x” ( to try to close the smattering of garbage ads). Sneaky Newsbreak....sneaky. C-ya!
  • Links never work 1/5

    By uselessappnickname
    I just deleted this app for a second time. Click-through to articles didn’t work first time and after I gave it a try a second time late last year, they still don’t. I give up. App deleted permanently.

  • Click to disappear 1/5

    By Chef Ryan Farquhar

  • I ♥️ NewsBreak 5/5

    By RaZkaL1
    It’s Unbelievably Unbiased Like News Should Be & Super Informative...10 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Bad news lousy reporting : fake news 1/5

    By doc4mates
    Lousy reporting. Total misinformation. Another left wing false news blog not worth time or effort. Just deleted this garbage!
  • Notifications go to wrong articles 2/5

    By Sissopolis
    Probably 25% of the time, I’ll get a notification with a headline I’m interested in reading about, but when I tap on the notification, it takes me to a completely different article and I can’t find the one I was supposed to be reading. Super annoying and happens way too often.
  • Bias news network just like all the rest. 1/5

    By schwagmyer
    Half of the news on this channel is fake and very bias and I would love to delete it from my phone and plan on doing that very shortly due to the very bias and poorly researched content
  • News 3/5

    By tru2 me
    Appropriate information !.
  • Left leaning 1/5

    By mom of hammers
    I can tell how left leaning this news outlet really is. Amazing how 2 weeks ago Covid was on the rise and the sky was falling, now I read since Biden is in office the numbers are suddenly decreasing. We the People are not idiots these “news outlets” think we are.....
  • Pushes mostly liberal drivel 1/5

    By JEJ291
    Would be a great app but it constantly pushes liberal stories. It’s like a Democrats dream come true - if you stay on this app you will believe the world is made of candy rainbows and chocolate rivers.
  • Great 5/5

    By false happy unteal disbelieve
    Great read.. enjoy
  • Delete! 1/5

    By st.jj
    To much baiting. Your out.
  • Story too long ands drawn out 1/5

    By usarose
    Just show me the headline and let me read the story - you draw it out too much with fluff - no thanks.
  • I like the news updates, but hate being strung along 3/5

    By Ron Ri
    So please either say what you want or just don’t say anything at all.
  • Liberal Biased! 1/5

    By Yankees1cc
    Very close, if not the same, as CNN and NBC when it comes to your liberal biased storylines. Almost sickening at times. Local news is all I use this news outlet for. Your national news lines are horribly one sided to liberals.
  • Is this just another “Left Wing” Platform? 1/5

    By Harry smooth
    I’m thinking about downloading the app but I DO NOT want just another Bias, Left Wing Media Fake News app.... Can anyone answer this? One star only just because it’s mandatory
  • What has happened 2/5

    By 01211954do
    I had this news app for over a year now. It’s worked fine until recently. I have a lot of trouble opening the news stories. I will get a notification on my home screen and when i try to read it, it will freeze up and shutdown. I will try to open the app to find the story, but can’t find it anywhere. This sometimes happens when i go into the app and try opening a story from their list of stores (it’s starting to happen more often) I updated the app hoping that would fix the problem, but it hasn’t, it’s getting worse!
  • Shut off comments, PLEASE😞 2/5

    By WVUtahian
    I enjoy getting my local news but hate the abusive, name calling, divisive comments. Please disconnect, deactivate, and discontinue the comments section. I am not seeing this feature on major online news outlets.
  • Newsmax 5/5

    Honest News! not republican not Democratic not opinion ...just the facts!

    By whipcream65
    I love being able to read the “up to date “ news right when it comes out : ty
  • Not unbiased news 2/5

    By Sarah.linck
    It was nice to see articles from my area all in one place, but the headlines are very clickbait-ish and the way they’re written is very right wing. I like my news to just tell me what happened, not make implications about how I should feel about it. No thanks.
  • Bob Spencer 4/5

    By Karodachex
    This news source will be great as long as, and only as long at it is balanced. In the recent past a lot of news was ignored in favor of biased positions like in the San Diego Union. It’s not what they printed that I objected to - it was what they DIDN’T and WOULDN’T print. Too biased to be considered a fair arbiter of news. They are not Free Press - bowing to Big Tech for fear of being deplatformed.
