Decent site! 3/5
The site presents good content especially for local news. However, it tends to post substantially behind most of the major outlet alerts (Fox, NBC, CBS, etc. ) for breaking news. Placement and quantity of ads displayed at one time can also be distracting or can block content which is annoying.
Tons of clickbait and garbage news sources. Even blocking certain sources they keep popping up in feed
Couldn’t Tap Zero 1/5
Downloaded this app because it was advertised as non-political. That lie was so big it is as if the Democrats wrote it for you. The worst, most bigoted thing that I have seen.
Only Liberal News Articles 1/5
By AT Dream Catcher
I am terribly disappointed that Apple would only print in its news sheet Libetal, Leftist Articles. I had hoped it would be a more balanced, politically, news source. It is not. I am removing it from my phone.
Love This! 5/5
By Retired Soldier Girl
I love News Break simply because I’m usually not in sitting in front of a Television. I get all the news “Firsthand” without waiting to watch the news.
Lousy app 1/5
Every other article is actually an ad, so it’s hard to trust the actual news articles... which of the pieces I read were just clickbait outlets linking to actual news outlets. The in-app browser for reading news seems to have limited functionality and I couldn’t even click the clickbait article’s source link to read the primary source.
Not that it matters— with so many ads passing as news, I don’t think this is a reputable app.
So much news...so little time... 5/5
By Local focus
Very helpful aggregator of local news...fills a void...good job of sticking to a few top local stories..thanks for the app
Awful. Liberal propaganda. 1/5
Spoon fed liberal stories filtering out any real facts.
Too many ads 2/5
Too many disruptive ads to enjoy articles. Content is good but too much work to get through reading an article. Will be uninstalling unfortunately.
Video ad should not auto play with audio 2/5
By Alan in Cary NC
I like having an app that gives me local news but when video ads auto play with sound, that just can’t happen. Will delete if not changed.
Great News 5/5
They keep you updated on all the news and the weather.
Like app 4/5
Enjoy getting these- increases my knowledge base easily and conveniently and fast current info!
Great App 5/5
News coverage is great keep it up
Very low quality content 1/5
Couldn’t take it for more than a couple months. I gave it plenty of time to try and get value out of this app, but the content is just trash. The national/world level “news” is horrible with no way, apparently, to define the type of content you want to see so by default you get pop culture celebrity and inflammatory “news”. The local “news” is just as bad and may actually be worse - I never could get any type of relevant news other than the weather. Zero value as an actual news source. Looking back, I can’t believe I gave it as long as I did.
Media putting gas on the fire 1/5
Fueling the fire all negative news
Very informative 5/5
By Prudy D.
Short quick stories that vary about different areas and states.
Harbours Racists 1/5
I’ve never read so many offensive, downright disgusting things posted in an app. The moderation is ZERO. Not a real News App. You can, and will find better. This is just trash.
Click bait 1/5
Tons of click bait
It’s ok 3/5
It’s an ok app, when I get notifications from the App I click on them, then sometimes it won’t load the App. It ends up freezing sometimes, it gets annoying especially when you really want to know the news. Other than that, it’s ok.
Not bad 3/5
By disappointed prime user
I like the app. I don’t like the same news story popping up with a different headline every day. I deleted it because I got really tired of the racist comments. If you guys clean up the comments, I’ll be back. Our country is on fire right now. I hope you guys come up with guidelines for your comments.
I enjoy the quick, regular local updates.
By opps fake
You only put your spin on the news
Inaccurate Bias reporting
Headlines to sensational and half truths written
You should all b ashamed
Racist gossip with some news mixed in 1/5
By El silko
Some of the local news is alright, but they need to vet news orgs better. Station gossip.com has some bs that paints blacks as antifa terrorists. Uninstall, or consider yourself part of trumps racist anti media org.
Sharing requires app to be installed for all parties 1/5
When I want to share a story I do not want to demand someone install an app at the same time. These stories are available on the Web, you do not own them.
GREAT INFORMATION ON THE NEWS especially on island updates
Love the app other than some articles you start reading will not let you finish unless you subscribe to their news site other than that great app.
What a crappy app 1/5
By Rollinz X
This app dispenses nothing but misinformation. I doubt any of the “news” is real!
Used to be 5 stars 1/5
This app provided information on COVID-19 by country, state, county. But recently this information has become intermittent, mostly nothing except for a circling search. It does provide local news consistently.
Also, tabs for Protests and Police Radio provide nothing. Just circling search.
This website must be ran by a pack of liberals. The bias in some of your articles is ridiculous. Therefore you leave me no choice but to delete this app.
By little carlita
Can’t watch anymore. Done with all the negative things and trashing our president at every opportunity
Too many notifications 4/5
Too many notifications for though out the day.
The app became very slow lately 3/5
Hey guys I love your app and the way you deliver local news. I noticed that the app became very slow in the last two weeks to a point where it’s hard to use it. I’ve been using it to track COVID-19 cases but now it takes forever to load the data.
Great everywhere! 5/5
No matter where I go this app always has local news everywhere you go. I even went to a cabin in the middle of nowhere up in Wisconsin and I was still seeing news reports in the local towns
Way more ads than news- basically a mindless waste of you time!!!! 👎👎 1/5
By Deleting App gone
Don’t bother downloading!!
So bias 1/5
This is not breaking news this is propaganda news disguised as real news.
Thank you for the timely and well written updates
Local news 5/5
By the fliest guy
I really enjoy the local new in my area, news you usually don’t hear or see on other news feeds.
Articles take too long to load 3/5
More times than not, when I select an article, it says that the article is loading and it never pops up.
News in around my home 5/5
I can keep up the latest news 24/7 good and bad. Thank you. Taz
Love Being Informed! 5/5
Having the updates, within seconds of dangerous situations in the neighborhood, is actually life saving!
Too many ads 2/5
There are far too many advertisements. The ads for various news and items makes it difficult to navigate.
Hey Hey 5/5
Hey you can
By Michael Wasserman
Coronavirus and Protest tabs won’t open but buffering. I am tired of this crap. I am giving ZERO RATING. PLEASE FIX THE ISSUE RIGHT AWAY
Too many Liberal one sided articles on here. They post anything without any proof
Informative on things you don’t hear about 5/5
By Dusky Year
Love this app news at your fingertips at your own convenient updates and what’s going on in your neighborhood good to know
Love, love, love....finally a platform for patriots that care about this country and all Americans.
Poor reporting practices 2/5
The stories don’t jive with the headlines. The writer is trying to entice you to read the article, when it has nothing to do with the headline. Getting really sick of this low class reporting. This is why media is rated so low in popular opinion! When I took journalism we were told by the instructor, if they knew what your opinion was on the article you wrote from the article, you failed the assignment. Our journalists have become commentators, not journalists.
Too many misleading headlines. Unarmed man shot by police. When video clearly shows he shot at police first. News is all political now. Not worth reading. Should only be 100% true
