More ads than news. Some articles wont even load if you dont habe a subscription to the actual news affiliate. Hard to decipher through all the garbage to fund the news they entice you with.
Another One Bites The Dust 1/5
By BR HOG
Well, looks like this app is just in it for the money as well. Too many adds, they get in the way, slows down the app, and just not worth the frustration of dealing with the slow and sometimes crashing issues. It’s all about the money...I can do without this one as well.
Apps Agenda ???? 1/5
This app is run by Racists’. It’s obvious when you post a black women in a dress she is loose ( Ashanti was the subject of that article ) but Selena was stunning in her bathing suit with her boobs out . Read the comments they are all racist . This app is the kind of thing that help racist ppl from around the world to hey together and beef up their egos.
A must have! 5/5
Love this app! A must have!
The best app. 5/5
Check this app every day!
Handy but some features don’t work. 3/5
By Right Wing Nutter
I like having access to local news stories from various sources. There are a few bugs.
1. I have notifications for this app turned on. When I see an interesting story I’ll tap the notification. At least half the time News Break can’t find the story, and the notification has disappeared so I can’t try again.
2. Text links to other stories within a story don’t work.
Love it 5/5
I appreciate the fact I see this News Break almost minutes after it happens. Thank you
Read More 2/5
If I did not want to read more I would not have selected the news article. The "Read More" prompt as well as the increased advertisements are time consuming and irritating!
Awesome app 5/5
Love this app it keeps me informed about news in my area and around the world. Love the breaking news
I can’t really find a better app so... 3/5
By Nikki Hoover
So this app is pretty good for the most part. I've been using it for a while now and have a few gripes however. The application itself has a pretty user friendly interface but there's definitely room for improvement. I think a aesthetically it could use some updating. I really enjoy the fact that it provides news from varying resources but offers a platform in which you can create a dialogue. Another issue I have though is that it often doesn't provide breaking news at fast enough speeds per my preferences, or at least the notifications don't alert me of any of it until at least three hours after the app has it posted...not having the notification alert me of local news coverage in a timely manner sets me up for failure a lot because, for example, I live in an area very close to an accident prone part of the freeway and am alerted on this app of accidents in this area...when I don't receive the notifications of these situations at the correct time and I leave to run an errand I end up getting backed up and arrive late to my destination. I know there's other apps I can rely on for traffic information but I'm the kind of person who would rather rely on one app to do what I need it to rather than a series of them that essentially report on the same things.
Now, for news that's local this app does offer a lot regardless of the timeliness of their notifications and I'm probably going to continue to use it, but yes there is room for improvement for sure. Can't wait to see if any of this ends up resolved in later updates.
I love the idea of the app, it never said anywhere that it was going to charge me and immediately I got a $10 charge. Trying to figure out how to get off! Very disappointed!
So sick of "You might like this" pop-ups 1/5
I'm so sick of the "You might like this" pop-ups that keep happening while I'm TRYING to read the current article. STOP! Wait till I'm done reading the current article! I don't want that stupid pop up to cover the article I'm TRYING to finish reading.
Also, due to low vision, I sometimes have to read it in Safari which has large fonts there. When I put the article there, it keeps sending me back to this stupid app. I don't want to read it on the app. I want to read it on the safari web browser due to large fonts!
I've just deleted this app.
It’s ok 3/5
Takes way too many clicks to get from email to the story. Also, I live in Inverness Florida and keep getting stories for Inverness UK. Not quite local
Racist and homophobic comments 2/5
Been looking for a news app specifically so I can browse articles without the disgusting Facebook comments sections. Well, this app creates its own comments section on every story, and they’re every bit as gross as Facebook.
Local news 5/5

Check my News Break’s couple times a day wife and I love the apt
Good app 5/5
By chucky lowe
I love this app keeps me up on all the information I need to know!!!
No more News Break for me 1/5
By foget it!!
I was liking this app until I opened a notification that was supposed to be news but was some racist garbage written by a local troll , Turtle Boy Sports. No room for hate in this heart. Deleted app immediately.
Horrible UI 1/5
Loaded it up. Uninstalled it five minutes later.
No reader view, it loads pages in cramped window with all the ads and annoying pop and has a huge feed taking up a huge column on the right.
Horribly ugly user interface and user experience.
To many pop ups. 3/5
I would gladly pay a small fee to eliminate the pop up ads. Because of the pop ups I looking for another news app.
As I’m trying to read the stories I get redirected to adds at the bottom of the page so I scroll back up read 5 words and get thrown back down to a add this is just plain dumb
May times you cannot find a story that you were alerted on earlier in the day
I saw an article I wanted to learn more about. I clicked on the link and it gave me to a website that app is all kinds of information but not the article I wanted to see. I couldn’t even find it. If I clicked on it to find out more information I should be able to be directed right to it.
Pop up advertisement 2/5
No matter what I do..the ad will not go away..I have to click out and back in..it’s annoying
I try to read a article and it keeps jumping to a another one every two seconds it just gets very annoying and frustrating then I can’t find what I was trying to read
By MJN The Queen
Always up to date on what goes on in the area.
News on the go. 5/5
By 51 RT
I like that this app follows you by your location. I like to know what’s going on in the areas I’m traveling in.
Unsatisfied. Fix it. 1/5
Ya update didn’t do anything. The bugs are still horrible. I get notifications about stories but when I go to click on them, they don’t even load up.
Did not like 1/5
By Dudley 444
Posts stories from sources that are known for fake news 1/5
I really wanted to like this app. I can’t. When I see stories posted by sources that are known for posting fake and hateful stories and is listed with Southern Poverty Law Group as a propaganda and conspiracy group, it is hard to believe much of what is posted on this app. It also has some month old stories that no one really cares about. They also allow much harassment in the comments section. This is yet another news app that can’t be trusted to place real news on the app. Goodbye to another one.
Ads,ads, and more ads!! 1/5
Garage app when you can’t read a single article without a million ads getting in the way.
Ads out of control 1/5
The ads on this app are way out of control. Every time I try to scroll down to continue ready a story, it jumps to the bottom where all the ads are. Completely useless experience.
Ads are killing your app 2/5
The ads that are appearing are not only annoying, it is very hard if not impossible to close them. The top left corner shows it being done playing but sometimes it just won’t close. It’s Happening on all our phones in our house.
Also I went to Florida for 2 weeks, been home for 4, and can’t get the Florida news to stop popping up. It is not saved as a location to follow.
It’s annoying how I’m reading a article and the app takes me all the way down the page so I can see a ad constantly I can’t even read the articles I use to like this app I’m disappointed
CNN is fake news 1/5
Problem is they lie about the political leaders they don’t support. Their liberal agenda has twisted so many stories into lies. They cant be taken at face value
See news local and All over the world 5/5
See the news right Thur my phone!!share it save it wow ! Anyway you want to review it .
It’s done with news break?
Could be 5 3/5
I can live with ads, just as long as they can be closed to see the news story, that would be the 4th star. The fifth star would be to get rid of the Sunpaper providing stories news leads that you can’t read unless you subscribe to them. Waste of my time to click the lead and be told my 4 reads are up for the month
Sometimes it shows ads which doesn't close after end of ads. 2/5
Couple of things i noticed and need improvement.
1- I understand to support this app we need advertisements but sometimes this when i open app it have ads and even after finished watching ads, it doesn't close, [X] button does not respond, I have to close the app and open and browse for the news i wanted to read.
2- app should be default view as Readers view instead of choosing every single time.
Unwanted notifications 3/5
Local news is good, but I only have notifications for local news. I get numerous entertainment news notifications. Unwanted breaking news notifications might be bearable if they weren’t the most pointless happenings in the world.
Too many things 1/5
Way too many ads, crashes and bring you all the way to the bottom of article every time you try to scroll, things pop up that get blocked by other things so you can’t exit them so you never get to read the article. When watching the video a giant Q is in the way and the time and volume doesn’t go away so you can’t see the video. This app honestly is trash.
Could be a great app 2/5
The app gets stuck on stupid like it’s got a mind of its own, I will be looking @ something & all of a sudden it will switch to somewhere else & then I can’t find what I was reading. Definitely needs an update to fix some issues. Could be great app though
Not local and ad trap 1/5
Most the news is from Chicago despite being an hour out side of Chicago and the top story is unreadable. After about 5 seconds the page scrolls you to a ton of ads at the way bottom of the page. Scroll back up to read the story and 5 seconds later it takes you right back to the bottom of all the ads. Pretty pointless.
News break 1/5
Useless. Can never find what I’m looking for and never brings up the right news
Bad app 1/5
To many adds!! You can’t even read an article without it automatically scrolling to the bottom with a ton of adds! Really frustrating, every time you try to scroll back up it scrolls back down!😡
Tôi rất là thích Costco vì đồ trong đó tôi mua đều xài rất bền 5/5
Nhân viên rất tận tình giúp đỡ
Junk app 1/5
It won’t even open I’ve downloaded the app several times it does absolutely nothing pffffffffffff
While I understand that websites and news publishers need to be paid, that should be the role of aggregator, to get adverts and then reimburse the publishers so that readers can actually read the news uninterrupted.
Paywall after paywall pop-up, and getting a subscription to a paper or site to read a couple of articles a month is just off putting. I’d rather they make some of the ads the app maker pops up, this way, we don’t see the paywall pop ups. Nothing worse than reading a 2nd article on the same site, only to be asked to subscribe to the site month to month...
Hate this App! 1/5
I can’t get rid of it! Every time I click on what looks to be an interesting article an add comes up for a game app! I watch the stupid thing and can’t ever touch the x to have it go away! I never see the article ever! And I can’t delete the app! So sorry I downloaded this app.
Great News 5/5
